‘Star Wars’ fans around the world have celebrated May fourth as Star Wars Day since 1979.
This year, we’re lucky to be celebrating a new movie, The Force Awakens, which adds new life and some fresh new characters to this beloved fandom.
We’ve scoured the internet to bring you a host of dogs (and one very brave cat) who are cosplaying as the newest characters in Star Wars universe.
May the Fourth be With You!
I think we can all agree that Carrie Fisher’s French bulldog Gary stole the show on the movie promotion circuit for ‘The Force Awakens’. A fan photoshopped Gary into his own toy, and you know what? I’d totally buy it!
Chubbs the Wampug is world famous for her Wampa and Bantha cosplay.
Chubbs really took it to the next level with her Kylo Ren cosplay in celebration of #thepugawakens and even has a custom lightsaber to match!
This guy is just perfect. But don’t worry, there’s an IRL BB-8 too.
In honor of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I made my dog, Sakura a BB-8 droid costume for Halloween.
Sakura isn’t sure she’s the droid you’re looking for, but we know she is. (Jedi mind tricks are so outdated.)
Episode VII Stormtrooper
You can follow Penny Bark-Bark on Facebook to see all her cool cosplay looks, including Iron Man and Phasma (currently underway).
Penny’s Mama is also working on a Finn helmet so Penny can be a ‘good’ Stormtrooper too!
My dog broke her dew claw, so she’s wrapped up. We decided to make it a happier day and make her Rey dog!
Rey’s family turned her frown upside down with a little cosplay fun.

My cats would liken this to a feline Iron Maiden and run hissing in the other direction. Good job, Cosplay Cat.
