Unless your time machine just landed from Victorian England, you’ve probably noticed that “Star Wars” is everywhere right now, in theaters, on T-shirts and pajama pants and even on its own Star Wars-brand cereal.

But while you and your significant other are currently cosplaying as Finn and Rey, there’s no reason your pets can’t be part of the performance. Petco has just announced its new — and extensive — line of “Star Wars”-themed pet costumes, hoodies, accessories and toys. And before you ask, yes, there is a headband that gives your dog Princess Leia’s signature Cinnabon-ish hairstyle.

“Response to the highly anticipated ‘Star Wars’ Pet Fans Collection has been exceptional,” Rebecca Frechette, Petco’s senior vice president of merchandising, said in a statement.

And yes, this collection will probably make you happier than Han Solo right after he made that Kessel Run. There are Darth Vader dog harnesses, a Yoda ear headpiece for your cat (good luck with that) and more than one Chewbacca chew toy — which seems a little like cannibalism.

Personally, we’re a little disappointed that there isn’t a Tauntaun pet bed (although there are Chewie and Vader beds), but there’s always next year.
