In case you weren't aware, there's a new Star Wars movie coming out. Oh, wait. You've heard of it? That's probably because we're only a few weeks away from the film's release date, and people are talking about it everywhere.

Earlier this week, Google delighted fans with its new Star Wars-inspired apps. With a quick web-browser extension download, you can turn YouTube's progress bars into lightsabers, Google Map markers into TIE Fighters or Millennium Falcons and make Google Translate include alien languages. Pretty cool.

But if you thought it was done, it's not. This is all part of Google's partnership with Disney to help promote "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." And now, Google is at it again with a fun new format for search results.

Go to Google right now and type "a long time ago in a galaxy far far away" and see how the results come back.

What you're seeing is Google's Star Wars-themed Easter Egg that displays your search results in the same format as the famous Star Wars intro. You can even click the sound icon to unmute the Star Wars theme music.

Are those search results real and clickable? Yes, they are. The results are displayed on an auto-crawl that shows you recent Star Wars related articles.

The new movie hits theaters on December 18. Are you excited to see it? Let us know in the comments below. And, as always, may the Force be with you.
