She's got buns, hon. Kim Kardashian is really taking the opening day of Star Wars: The Force Awakens seriously. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared photos on Friday, December 18, of a Star Wars-themed gig she did with Kanye West back in 2008.

"In honor of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' being released today, I wanted to share these old pics of Kanye and me from years ago!" Kardashian, 35, wrote via her personal website. "We worked together on a pilot for a show called 'Alligator Boots' back in 2008 and I played Princess Leia."

She added: "We had met before this project (back in 2003), but I would say this is when we first really connected. These pics are SO funny!"

In the photos, the mom of two dressed as Princess Leia for the TV movie. She rocked Princess Leia's trademark hair buns and a gold chain bra. West, 38, suited up as a Stormtrooper. The raunchy comedy featured puppets hooking up, West dancing with puppeteers, and Kardashian telling her future hubby that she was going to have sex with a bear named Beary White/Big Chocolate.

Kardashian appeared to enjoy her time on set. "It's nothing new for me," she said off-camera in a 2011 YouTube video. "I play with puppets all the time."

West, who also had fun, added: "I love the first Star Wars. You get that organic feel with [my] character."

Kardashian and West began dating four years later in early 2012. The couple — who married in Florence, Italy, last year — welcomed daughter North in June 2013 and son Saint earlier this month.
