It’s much cooler than the title suggests. Head over there to see exactly how much time we see the Force being used and by whom and what powers. We get breakdowns of who says MTFBWY and even a detailed description of the methodology which is just as geeky as the rest of the article.

Sometimes people just do it right. And in the case of Jennifer and Joshua – they literally take the (wedding) cake! These two love birds love nothing more than Star Wars, and as you can see from the photo above – they incorporated the iconic movie into their special day.
