Be a Stormtrooper! were a series of recruitment videos issued by the Galactic Empire during the early stages of the Galactic Civil War requesting that various people in the galaxy join the Stormtrooper Corps and in some cases, the Imperial Army. It also unveiled four individuals in each video, with each person being wanted for treason. Two versions were known to exist:

The first, "Be a Stormtrooper!", requested that the viewer become a stormtrooper and join the Imperial Army, promising that they'll be able to see the galaxy if they did so. The stormtroopers were shown in formation across the right edge of the screen as this is shown, with TIE/LN starfighters and an Imperial I-class Star Destroyer flying overhead. As the Star Destroyer's thrusters fired up, it then unveiled a listing of four individuals wanted by the Galactic Empire for treason, including Yoda, Leia Organa, Meena Tills, and Obi-Wan Kenobi. The last of them, however, utilized his Clone Wars-era image, due to his having gone in hiding since the Duel on Mustafar, and his not appearing in public since his near-death during the Battle of Utapau at the start of Order 66.

The second, "The Empire Wants You!" mentioned that the Empire wanted the viewer to join, and promised that there would be "great benefits" to joining immediately. During the ad, several rows of stormtroopers, alongside red flags bearing the symbol of the Galactic Empire swaying behind them, were facing the screen. It then showed four individuals wanted by the Galactic Empire for treason, including Han Solo, Gume Saam, Luke Skywalker, and Jabba Desilijic Tiure.

The videos included writing in Aurebesh, the High Galactic alphabet, and a third writing system.
