“Return of the Badge” isn’t a planned movie for the “Star Wars” franchise, but it is something Facebook decided to celebrate.

The social-network company transformed part of its campus into Endor and let its employees pose alongside stormtroopers and Chewbacca to celebrate May 4 – the date is wildly considered to be “Star Wars” Day, as in “May the Fourth be with you.”

Here’s what Facebook’s “Return of the Badge” looked like:


Facebook’s “Return of the Badge” kicked off by totally redoing part of its campus into a “Star Wars” set.

All the extravaganza just to get a new badge 😉

The “Star Wars” set was modeled after Endor’s forest moon, the home of the furry alien species the Ewoks.


Even the lunch was “Star Wars” themed.

… while some Facebook employees tried to overtake the stormtroopers instead.

Not even a Stormtrooper could prevent me from picking up my new badge #returnofthebadge

Even the Ewoks got in on the game.

Who knew Ewoks could be so threatening?

Pwned by an Ewok…

But at the end of the day, Chewbacca was there to give out hugs — even if the Ewoks got a little jealous.

Those ewoks are a jealous bunch. #chewiecuddles #maythe4thbewithyou
