The Star Wars app turns your mobile device into your very own Star Wars companion — featuring breaking news, VR and AR experiences, a Star Wars weather app and of course a countdown to the release of The Force Awakens and beyond. You can also practice your lightsaber skills and take a selfie with princess Leia. In other words, a Star Wars fan's wet dream.
