Playing Neil Patrick Harris' Family Wins Halloween with Epic Star Wars Costumes

The force is definitely with Neil Patrick Harris and his adorable family.

The Best Time Ever host, his husband, David Burtka, and 5-year-old twins, Harper Grace and Gideon Scott, dressed up in galaxy gear for an amazing Star Wars-themed Halloween.

In the epic photo Neil posted to Instagram on Saturday, Gideon appeared to be taking his Luke Skywalker duties very seriously with a lightsaber (that was longer than him!), while Harper made for one fierce Princess Leia as she sassily posed with one hand on her hip.

David did his best Han Solo, and Neil channeled his inner Obi-wan Kenobi for the action-filled shot.

No Star Wars portrait is complete without Yoda, who was hidden in the back of the shot under a rock.

"A long time ago in a Halloween far, far away…." the Gone Girl star captioned the family's Halloween photo.

A long time ago in a Halloween far, far away....

The family of four was far from the only ones who channelled Star Wars for Halloween this year. The force also awoke Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and her family -- husband Jionni LaValle, 3-year-old son Lorenzo and 13-month-old daughter Giovanna -- when they went trick-or-treating near their home in New Jersey.

While this feels like even moreStar Wars love than usual, even for Halloween, the multiple takes on the beloved characters makes sense as the next film in the franchise, The Force Awakens, hits theaters in December.

In addition to dressing up as Princess Leia, Ripa nearly broke the internet when she recreated Kim Kardashian's Paper magazine cover during her talk show's Halloween special. Watch the video below to get a closer peak at the fantastic costume.
