Social Scanner – May 8, 2015

BB-8 cookies? Yes, please! Check out this week's best from Star Wars fans on social media!

As a member of the (very small) social media team here at Lucasfilm, I have the honor of reading, responding to, laughing at, loving, and sharing all of your Star Wars conversations every day. Our fans are creative, passionate, funny, and very active across the Internet; every Friday, I’ll share my favorite social media posts from the week in the Social Scanner, so show me what you’ve got!

One of my favorite things about Star Wars is the endless creativity that pours out of every corner of the fandom, and few days showcase this better than Star Wars Day, May the 4th. Here’s just a small sample of the awesomeness I had the pleasure of witnessing on Monday. Thanks for making me feel incredibly unskilled, everybody!

Pets and sidekicks across the galaxy also got in on the fun!

There were even celebrations in space!

I think it’s summed up best by Mark Hamill himself…

Star Wars Day wouldn’t exist would the creativity and passion of the fandom, so thank you all for making this the biggest yet! The Force will be with you, always.
