It would seem that even the mighty Google can become a slave to the power of the force. Google have hidden a truly out of this world Star Wars easter egg on their homepage and we have just the phrase to unlock it.

Yesterday, was a big day for Google and Star Wars fans everywhere as the tech giant announced its “Choose Your Side” promotional campaign. The initiative allows users to customise their google devices and apps with out of this world Star Wars themes and sounds. The fun doesn't stop there, next week they are set to launch an all new VR experience via Google Cardboard.

The Easter Egg

Back to the easter egg - as well as the awesome new Star Wars content for their devices, they have released another Star Wars related surprise - but this one on the other hand, was not announced. Well, that's not strictly true it was announced on Twitter - kind of...

The Phrase

Have you worked it out yet? 'The beginning', what do they mean? Well, what are we here for if not to help you geek out online.

'The beginning' refers to the very beginning of Star Wars of course. We need to go back to the first line of the first film. Which is of course - “A long time ago in a galaxy far far away,”. If you type this phrase into Google search you will see probably the best ever search result you have ever seen. This even works on phones. Geeks, movie lover and force lovers everywhere - you’re welcome!

Star Wars the Force Awakens is set thirty years after the fall of the Galactic Empire and stars Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and his allies face an all new threat from the evil Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and his jumped up army of Stormtroopers.

Star Wars the Force Awakens releases December 17! May the force be with you.
