Unlocking the Loading Screen is a bit more complex than the Emoji. First, you must locate a Twitch streamer with [Drops Enabled] on their stream. You can start by heading to the Fortnite category and scanning through the list of live broadcasts.

Once you find a streamer with Twitch Drops enabled, random Star Wars-related items will appear on the screen. You must click on these items to "catch" them. You can confirm the number of items you have collected in the "Collection" tab, which will be an extension that appears on the stream window.
