Justin Timberlake has found his inner Jedi, and it appears to run in the family.

The 10-time Grammy Award winner, 40, and his 6-year-old son Silas ventured to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World where they built their own lightsabers.

"I don't know who was freaking out more... me or my six year old," Timberlake wrote on Instagram Saturday. "This was the coolest. Big thank you to @waltdisneyworld for an amazing trip."

The father of two posted a video to his Instagram story of them putting together their lightsabers, which appeared to be a breeze for Silas, but not so much for the singer. "When your six year old assembles his light saber twice as fast as you," the proud dad wrote.

In January, Timberlake opened up about trying to raise his kids out of the spotlight, when he appeared on the podcast Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard. "I try to be conscious of making sure we can live a life where we're not weirdly private," the Palmer star said. "But we're conscious of making sure they can be kids for as long as possible and not have the way of somebody else treating them differently because of something that their parents do."

Timberlake shares son Silas with wife Jessica Biel, 39, whom he married in Italy in October 2012. The couple welcomed their second son Phineas, 10 months, in July 2020.

"Right now he's very much liking it," Timberlake previously told Ellen DeGeneres of Silas becoming a big brother. "Phin can't walk yet or chase him down, so we'll see what happens."

Last week, Biel said her sons are "besties" when she appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. "I think they are, I really do and I really was worried you just never know what's going to happen and how your older one is going to feel about the little one," she said."[They] just think each other are so funny, and it's so amazing to watch."
