May the 4th be with you: Star Wars day, here’s what to do
– May the force be with you –
The Star Wars franchise will be celebrating another annual informal commemorative day on May 4, 2023.
The idea was founded by chairman George Lucas after the idea came from the pun May the fourth be with you originally taken from the movies iconic line May the force be with you.
Many fans have since adopted the idea to celebrate the day to commemorate the decades-old franchise and the day has been acknowledged by both Disney and Lucasfilms to date.
While solid usage of the phrase May the fourth be with you only gained traction after May 4 in 1979, fans have since celebrated the day and phrase in a myriad of ways.
Special uniforms and costumes have been worn to commemorate the day with astronauts in the International Space Station also watching the Star Wars film on the day back 2015.
May the force be with you!
