Daisy Ridley And John Boyega Definitely Won Star Wars Day

Let the cast of 'Star Wars' melt your heart this May the 4th

It's pretty hard to avoid the fact that today is May 4, also known as May the 4th be with you, also known as Star Wars Day. You see, today, more than any other day, young Padawan, is a celebration of George Lucas's extensive universe -- and you don't have to live in a galaxy far, far away to participate in the festivities.

This year, Star Wars newbies Daisy Ridley and John Boyega -- Ridley is currently busy filming Star Wars: Episode VIII (NBD) -- were hella excited to take part in the fandom celebration. Here's how precious humans Ridley, Boyega, and the rest of the Star Wars cast celebrated their big day.

  • First, Daisy Ridley just couldn't contain her excitement.

    Have you ever seen a smile so magnificent? It's seriously out of this galaxy. (Get it?)

  • Then she reminded all of us that her friendship with John Boyega is the stuff dreams are made of.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced us to the wonderful friendship between Ridley and Boyega, and now we don't ever want to live in a world where it doesn't exist. (Mad love to you too, BB-8.)

  • She also celebrating the hard-working Star Wars crew who helped Rey's fresh 'do look flawless in the Jakku heat.

    "This is team Dazzle; Lisa, Amanda and Callie (missing Sonny!) AKA the incredible women that kept me going the whole way through the shoot!" Ridley wrote.

  • Meanwhile, Boyega had a message for his Stormtrooper brothers in arms.

    There must have been a lot of downtime on the Starkiller Base.

  • Chris Miller, one-half the directing team helming the upcoming Han Solo standalone flick also tweeted this peek at the anticipated film.

    STOP BEING SUCH A TEASE, MILLER. So about that young Han Solo casting...

  • Over in New York City, Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams surprising a bunch of theater nerds with Lin-Manuel Miranda.

    Miranda and Abrams surprised Hamilton fans with a live performance of "Jabba Flow," the cantina music the duo penned for The Force Awakens, during Wednesday's #Ham4Ham show. Miranda confirmed the cantina jam was written in Huttese.

  • And finally, it wouldn't be Star Wars Day without a message from Peter Mayhew a.k.a. Chewbacca.

    I'M NOT CRYING -- YOU'RE CRYING.
