The force is strong in Utah.

So strong that one Utah theater ranked No. 1 in the nation for the movie premiere of "Rogue One" when it debuted last December.

The Megaplex Theater at Jordan Commons in Sandy brought in the most revenue in the country for people seeing the latest Star Wars film, according to the Deseret News.

“Utah Star Wars fans have again proven themselves the most enthusiastic in the U.S.,” Blake Andersen, president of Megaplex Theaters, said in a statement. “The Megaplex team is delighted to have so many fans gather at our locations to celebrate this new chapter in the classic series and are already making plans for the release of Star Wars: Episode VIII coming next year.”

Three other Megaplex Theaters in Utah also ranked in the top 20 in the nation for dollar revenue, beating out their other locations in New York and California.

It's no surprise then that Utahns go all-out to show their love for the movie and the people they care about most.

Here are five heartwarming stories of Utahns celebrating Star Wars in their own way to help make you one with the Force for May 4.

Utah couple gets married by an Imperial stormtrooper

Not only did Utahns attend theaters in record numbers for the premiere of "Rogue One," one couple took it a step further — and decided to get married there.

Utahns Liberty Dooley and James Davis tied the knot at the Megaplex at the Junction at the premiere of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in December 2015.

They tied the knot in the theater lobby, officated by an Imperial stormtrooper, while friends and loved ones stood by holding lightsabers, according to the Standard-Examiner.

The two met online after finding and reading each other's Star Wars fan blogs. After chatting online, Dooley from Texas moved to Clearfield with two of her children to be with Davis.

“It was kind of a big leap of faith,” Dooley told the Standard-Examiner.

Two Utahns find a galactic kind of love

Julianne and Victor Sine didn't have your typical wedding engagement.

After a photo of the two and Julianne's daughter dressed as Finn, Rey and BB-8 from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" went viral at Salt Lake Comic Con's FanX in 2016, everything changed for the couple, according to The Deseret News.

They received an outpouring of love and support from friends and strangers all across the country.

The couple then decided to shoot their engagement photos at Utah's Little Sahara Sand Dunes and recreate the fictional planet of Jakku (the sandy planet seen in "The Force Awakens") — which prompted even more messages and media requests.

"How personal people were with us, who didn't know us, was shocking," Victor Sine said, according to The Deseret News. "At first I thought it was just about cosplay, but they authentically and sincerely love us as people. … It makes us feel like we have a big friend group and a big family group."

The two married in the Newport Beach Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and their many online fans helped raise just enough money for Victor to officially adopt Julianne's daughter, Addie.

Utah man with autism meets Luke Skywalker at Salt Lake Comic Con

Thirty-seven-year-old Nathan Egan had a lifelong dream come true in September 2016 when he met his favorite Star Wars character, Luke Skywalker.

Egan greeted Mark Hamill, the actor who plays Skywalker in the Star Wars films, at Salt Lake Comic Con, gave him a hug, and snapped a photo, according to the Deseret News.

His sister, Alison Hill, told the Deseret News that Egan, who was born with autism and suffered a brain injury when he was 17, has found peace and comfort over the years in his many interests, including "Star Wars."

"When I was a kid back then, I'd watch it on TV with my brothers and sisters, and it was so great," Egan said. "I loved it so much. I like (Luke Skywalker) the best because he's the first I knew about when I was first watching 'Star Wars,' and I also like how he's the one who gets to fight with the lightsaber."

When Hill heard Hamill would be at the local Comic Con event, she immediately sprung for the super fan pass, which would allow the two to meet the Star Wars celebrity. Hill and Egan spent the day beforehand picking out the perfect shirt for their encounter.

Utahns make Star Wars fan film that packs a punch

Utahns aren't happy enough just watching the new Star Wars movies, either. They also want to create their own.

Utahns Tye Nelson, Danny James, and Jaci Twiss created their own alternate version of Star Wars called "Legacy of the Force," according to Good4Utah.

The film started with one idea — create a fun fight scene. In order to make it happen, they looked to "Star Wars" for inspiration.

According to Nelson, executive producer and actor in the fan film, the short movie was inspired by the Star Wars novel "Invincible" by Troy Denning.

The videos was posted in September 2015 and now has over 1 million views.

Chewbacca and Princess Leia show some mad basketball skills

Utahns don't just dress up as, or meet, Star Wars characters. Sometimes, they draw them too.

Deseret News' web producer Eric Rigby created a series of images depicting what it would look like if some of our favorite Star Wars characters faced off in the 2017 NCAA Tournament.

In his colorful illustrations, you will find Princess Layup going for the gold, C-Three-Point-O raising his hands in disgust at the referee, and Chewblocka taking control of a close game.
