Many fans have dressed in the special Star Wars costumes and uniforms to mark the momentous occasion.
Thursday will see fans of the beloved Star Wars franchise come together from galaxy far far away, to celebrate the biggest Star Wars day of the year. May 4, affectionately referred to as“May the 4th be With You” (May the Force be With You), is an occasion that pays homage to George Lucas’ Star Wars saga.
May the 4th be with You!
The fourth day of May holds special significance in the Star Wars galaxy. This is because it features a turn of phrase that has become a meme with the franchise’s iconic Jedi slogan, “May the Force Be With You.”
Interestingly, the origins of this meme can be traced back to 1978 when Star Wars devotees used to greet each other on the Fourth of May, as documented by Lucasfilm. Since then it evolved into a rallying cry for fans of the sci-fi franchise.
To commemorate the auspicious occasion, many fans have donned special Star Wars uniforms and costumes such as Storm Troopers costumes, Vader helms, Jedi robes, Mandalorian armor, and more, immersing them in the Star Wars universe. Back in 2015 astronauts aboard the International Space Station celebrated the day by watching the iconic Anakin Skywalker trilogy.
