neil patrick harris, david burtka, harper, gideon, star wars, halloween, costumeThe Force is strong with Neil Patrick Harris and his family, as the fierce foursome demonstrated while donning a seriously awesome set of "Star Wars"-themed costumes for Halloween weekend.

Harris, husband David Burtka, and twins Gideon and Harper all got in on the fun, dressing up as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia, respectively. Harris shared a snap on Instagram of the family posing in their get-ups, with the caption, "A long time ago in a Halloween far, far away...."

A long time ago in a Halloween far, far away....

We love the attention to detail that each member of the Burtka-Harris family put into their outfits, down to the character-specific poses that everyone is striking in the photo. Both Burtka and Harris could easily pass for their onscreen counterparts, while Harper and Gideon are adorable little mini-me versions of fellow fraternal twins Luke and Leia. We're especially loving Harper's sassy hand on her hip, proving she's every bit of the little diva-in-training we saw in that adorable video Harris shared last month of his family's musical morning routine. (Gideon's humming of the "Star Wars" theme in that clip also nicely foreshadowed the Halloween fun to come.)

The Burtka-Harrises have set the Halloween bar pretty high for other Hollywood families, and for themselves, too. We can't wait to see what clever costumes they come up with next year.
