The brand new Star Wars movie is coming out soon and the excitement has been building up. The trailer was released a few months ago and since then, the film has garnered heated debates. For some it has at once returned them to their childhood.

“We started thinking about what a Google tribute to these epic stories might look like: “Wouldn’t it be cool if there was some sort of Star Wars thingy in Search? The Millennium Falcon in Cardboard would be sweet! What if Google Translate could decipher galactic languages?” wrote Clay Bavor, VP of Product Management, in a blog post.

The themes were designed in collaboration with Google, Lucas Film and Disney.

The company promises that there is more coming, including big changes on the opening night. Google is not saying much but they have revealed that it will have something to do with Virtual Reality.

Furthermore, Google says it has hidden a few easter eggs but does not provide any more details.
