May 4 is International (and inter-universe) Star Wars Day, and this year, fans have a lot to celebrate. Whether it's new cast members, Yoda's presence in a 700-year-old medieval manuscript, adorable new droids or just the fact that it looks like we're going to get some new Star Wars that don't suck, everything's coming up on the light side of the Force.
Well, we're here to prey on your heightened emotions. Whether you're a scruffy-looking nerf herder or the proud owner of a ship that can make the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs (FYI, that's a tricky one: Both of those things refer to the same character!), you'll surely be transported to a time long, long ago by these photos of the Star Wars cast posing with their younger selves.

The universe's most famous Wookiee hopes to be up and roaring again soon.
Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars films, is recovering in a Texas hospital after having double knee-replacement surgery on Monday.
"We have made him bigger, stronger & faster; now if we can just get him out of bed! Taking it slow and steady," his family wrote Tuesday on his Twitter page, one of several updates they have given on his condition.
The British-born Mayhew, 69, who is 7'3" and now lives in Texas, has reportedly used a wheelchair for the past two years. He hopes the surgery will let him walk again.

It was a race to the finish!
Alyson Hannigan and her daughters Satyana, 4, and Keeva, 13 months, were dad Alexis Denisof's biggest cheerleaders as he participated in the Course of the Force relay race at George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch in Marin, Calif., on Tuesday.
Denisof, who was dressed in a self-made C-3P0 costume, "walked rigidly" (just like C-3P0!) in the last leg of the race.
"When Alexis rounded the corner, Alyson grabbed the kids and said 'Let's go watch daddy!'" an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "They cheered him on as he finished the relay with the lightsaber."
