A whopping 117 new emojis are coming to your smartphone soon and loads of them look absolutely epic.
The people who design these little creative nuggets are probably overwhelmed with requests every day. 'Do a Baby Yoda one', 'Do a Jaws shark one', they all must say.
Well, we're getting some pretty decent ones this time round.

One of the best is called 'Pinched Fingers', which loads of people will assume is the hand gesture very synonymous with Italian people.
No doubt that will do down well with virtually every message you ever send from now on.
We'll also be getting some super sick ninja emojis, which, of course, come in a variety of colours to suit all ethnicities.
My personal favourite is the Everything's Fine emoji, a smiley face that is also crying. Because what better way to tell your friends that you're hanging on by a thread but also keeping a brave face than an emoji.
Who needs words these days?
Smartphones will also be updated with a variety of parents, both male, female and gender neutral, who are nursing a child.
But it doesn't stop there, we've also been given an update on gender roles at someone's big day, meaning you'll get a man and woman in a tuxedo as well as a man and woman in a wedding gown.
There's also a gender neutral Santa Claus in there for good measure.
Then we go down the list and see the variety of other inclusions, like a black cat, bubble tea, some medical soup, a capsicum, a wooly mammoth, a polar bear, a variety of insects, some anatomical items and a few more bits and bobs that might pop up once in a group chat.
All in all, it's a pretty stellar line-up of new emojis, especially considering last year was a doozy.
The pinching hand emoji was one of the big favourites, with many people reckoning it would be used when someone might get sent an unsolicited picture.
We also got a yawning face, different people who are deaf, blind and unable to walk, different skin colours for partnered people, meaning two women, two men or a man and woman of differing skin tones can hold hands now.
As well as that, we got two types of service dogs, an otter, flamingo, orangutan, skunk, Jupiter, garlic, dumplings, onion, waffles, ballet shoes, parachuting, a new temple, drop of blood, kite, yo-yo, tuk tuk, and coloured squares.
