Well, that's one way to celebrate.

As Star Wars fanatics everywhere flock to social media to celebrate the beloved saga on May 4, franchise newcomers Daisy Ridley and John Boyega have taken to Instagram to wish fans a very happy Star Wars day.

Boyega, 24, gave a nod to his former Empire-defending pals in his post, sharing a hilarious video of a group of Stormtroopers twerking. (Yes, you read that correctly.)

In the clip, Boyega is seen opening a door and walking in on a group of Stormtroopers busting a move with rap music playing in the background.

"Happy Star Wars day," he wrote, adding the hashtag #Thereisareasonilefttheseguys.

And while Boyega took a comical route to celebrate the big day, Ridley, 24, went for a more sentimental post, sharing a series of photos from the film.

In one especially sweet snap, Ridley is seen holding hands with Boyega while on set.

"HAPPY STAR WARS DAY Y'ALL! @jboyega_ PEANUTS!" she wrote with a slew of heart emojis.

The actress also appears in a new video for Force for Change, which aims to "support the immense passion and goodwill" of Star Wars fans and "promote change through inspiration, stories and meaningful partnerships."

In the clip, Ridley thanks fans for their unwavering support and for raising more than $2 million to date. She is also joined by a few of her Star Wars costars – and is even given a special gift from Boyega.

Watch the clip above and May the fourth be with you.
