The Force is strong with these themes...

It's almost here. We've already got our tickets ordered. We've watched the original trilogy a dozen times. Some of us already have placeholders in line outside the theater. Because if there was ever a time to pay someone to stand in line for you, this is it.

Here at Android Central, we're excited for The Force Awakens, but since not all of us can buy Star Wars edition Droid Turbo 2s, we're going to help you with the next best thing: Star Wars themes for the phone you're already rocking.

Here's what you'll need to assemble your theme:

  • A launcher that supports resizing widgets, your choice of icon packs, and a few custom individual icons. There are plenty to choose from, but we used Nova Launcher, a longstanding favorite for many Android users.
  • Zooper Pro for custom Star Wars widgets by Bill Miller.
  • Jack's Music Widget (optional)
  • A file manager app, for importing Zooper widgets and moving ringtones around. We used Solid Explorer, but there are dozens of qualified managers to choose from.
