Disney officially released its Star Wars app on Android and iOS Wednesday, full of information on the blockbuster franchise ahead of its next installment set to debut this December.

Users are able to pull up interesting history and trivia facts as well as a handful of silly features that will delight fans of all stripes–from a selfie with Pricess Leia to exclusive interviews and lightsaber training.

But, clearly, the most useful feature of the app is to keep fans updated on what’s going on with the media maelstrom around the release of “The Force Awakens” and potentially other titles. Depending on your level of fandom, you can set the app to either push you major alerts or read updates directly in the app via a news ticker.

Disney (DIS) says the app will continue to grow and evolve with the franchise. For now, you can check out the app’s features in the video below.
