Google is celebrating Star Wars Day.

Lucasfilm

Google celebrated May the 4th, aka Star Wars Day, on Tuesday by adding a fun Easter egg to certain search terms. If you google "lightsaber," "Star Wars" "May the 4th" or "May the fourth," confetti and emoji of Grogu, R2-D2, C-3PO and other characters from a galaxy far, far away will rain down from the top of your open browser.

Star Wars fans can also check out the "real" lightsabers Disney is working on or watch the first episode of CGI animated series The Bad Batch on Disney Plus.
