(KGTV) — Calling all those loyal to the First Order!

Disneyland is looking for a few good people to enlist as a Stormtrooper at their "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" expansion. Open auditions will be held on May 24 in Downey to choose the land's newest recruits.

Those who apply must be 5-foot 10-inches to 6-feet tall with slender or athletic build. They'll also have to be at least 18-years-old or a high school graduate in 2019.

Applicants must demonstrate "high energy levels" and "imaginative improvisation" during their audition if they want a role. Those chosen will have to have a full range of body movement, even while working in a full body costume.

And much like a Stormtrooper working on the First Order's latest weapon, the hours aren't light. Applicants must be willing to work Friday nights, weekends, holidays, and during peak operating seasons.

Just as Kylo Ren intended.

But the job comes with benefits, as Disney says Stormtroopers will "appear before thousands of guests each day in meet-and-greets while posing for pictures and helping to create magical moments."

So you'll be making a child's day throughout your time in "Galaxy's Edge."

Auditions will be held Friday at the Onstage Dance Center in Downey starting at 9:30 a.m. and again at 2 p.m. More info can be found online here.
