"Star Wars" fans will be happy to hear that there is now an official app that brings news, sound clips and trivia to your Android or iOS smartphone. The app from Lucasfilm and Disney Interactive has notifications for trailers and movie releases, a lightsaber training game, sound banks, access to the franchise's various social media accounts — and believe it or not, a special "Star Wars"-themed selfie mode.

Pick a light side or dark side theme (depending on how you identify) or a blue droid color scheme if you don't want to take sides. There's even a five-day weather forecast made to look like it's for Tatooine or another of the famous "Star Wars" planets.

It is a feast of features for any avid fan of the series — you can download it now for free. The first movie in the new 6-movie series, entitled "The Force Awakens," debuts on December 18.
