Stars Wars fans say, 'May the 4th be with you'

Lamar Ellis | 11 May, 2017, 06:58

Fans have already been excited for the release of the new Star Wars film, Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi, after Disney has released a trailer ahead of its December 2017 release.

One of the earliest known references to the day followed the May 4, 1979, election of Margaret Thatcher as Britain's prime minister, according to a post on the official Star Wars website. You can share these on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram on Star Wars Day to show you love for the series and hopefully get a good laugh out of your friends and family.

It seems likely that more Star Wars promotions will be happening today, but as far as things inside of our wheelhouse are concerned, these seem like the big ones right now. The London Evening News ran a headline that read "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie", and since then, the day has belonged to Star Wars fans. In 2011, the Toronto Underground Cinema in Canada put together an organized celebration with a costume contest and a film festival.

Anyway, combining Star Wars with Lego, still the GREATEST TOY EVER, is bound to get people excited.

National monuments: Stand up for them
It directs the Department of Interior to examine all lands designated as national monuments since 1996. Bears Ears National Monument in Utah is also on the list.

This year's Star Wars Day featured a duel with light sabers at the Living Mall, a shopping mall with a giant orb that resembles the film's Death Star space station. This year, both Mayhew and Ahmed came out to celebrate Star Wars' 40th anniversary.

"But what they don't know, is that I'll be their surprise co-star".

Random? Absolutely. But still a welcome addition to Star Wars Day.

Other attractions include a Star Wars-themed "silent disco" on Friday and Saturday, from 9pm to 11pm, and a screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Saturday at 9pm.
