You Will Love Google's Hidden 'Star Wars' Easter Egg

You Will Love Google's Hidden 'Star Wars' Easter Egg

Nov 25, 2015

As part of a promotion for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Google is doing all sorts of fun little things to get you in the mood to have your Force awakened. Fans can start by going to and choosing either the light or dark side, and then watching as that side infiltrates their online lives in a number of ways.

For example, watching videos on YouTube becomes more Star Wars-y, and that runs across all things Google, like Gmail and Google Search. You can see what it looks like on YouTube below -- notice the red lightsaber look? And when you toy with pausing and unpausing, you'll hear lightsaber sounds.


It's within Google Search, though, that Google hid the coolest Star Wars Easter egg of all. When you search for the words "a long time ago in a galaxy far far away," your search results instantly turn into that classic Star Wars scroll, complete with music and everything. 

Happy Googling!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens -- which was just officially given a PG-13 rating -- hits theaters on December 18.
