google star wars choose your sideStar Wars: The Force Awakens is less than a month away, and Google has teamed up with Disney to get fans in the mood.

The search giant will let users choose the Dark Side or the Light Side for all their Google-based activities, from putting expansive Star Wars images as the background for Gmail windows to using a TIE fighter as the car in Google Maps.
