With only days left to go before the launch of the final movie in the 40-year-old Skywalker saga, Disney is leaning hard into promotions for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The latest is a trio of Star Wars-themed skins for Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode: heroes Rey and Finn, and the First Order’s new crimson Sith Stormtrooper. All three are available in the Fortnite Item Shop right now.

This isn’t the first bit of Fortnite swag from a galaxy far, far away. A vanilla stormtrooper, circa 1977, appeared as a cosmetic in November. It was offered as an unlock with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and for purchase on the Item Shop.

There’s also a promotion on Saturday, Dec. 14 where Fortnite players will be able to preview an exclusive scene from The Rise of Skywalker inside the game. The show begins at 2 p.m. ET.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premieres on Dec. 20.
