- Mark Zuckerberg took the characters out of Endor to hang out with him near his office.
“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.
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.
Stormtroopers caught employees trying to escape …
… while some Facebook employees tried to overtake the stormtroopers instead.
Even the Ewoks got in on the game.
Who knew Ewoks could be so threatening?
But at the end of the day, Chewbacca was there to give out hugs — even if the Ewoks got a little jealous.
