Carrie Fisher's daughter is wishing her followers a happy "May the Fourth" in a special Star Wars-themed Instagram post.

Star Wars fans are familiar with May 4 as Star Wars Day -- a time to wish people a happy "May the Fourth be with you" as a play on the classic movie line "May the force be with you."

Billie Lourd got in on the fan fare and got some help from her famous mom. She shared a picture Saturday of the two of them and captioned the photo by spelling out "May the Fourth" in emojis.
