May the 4th Be With You: The Best Star Wars Day Deals


A good saying certainly helps people remember something, that's why we have jingles, but it's quite clear the invention of this saying has nothing to do with honoring Star Wars directly.

A Star Wars Story are going on sale tonight at 9:00 PM PST, midnight on the East Coast, which will make it technically May 4, “Star Wars Day”. Think you've got a quality Wookie roar in you? According to Google, "The Google Doodle, Google Spotlight Stories, Google Arts & Culture, & Cinémathèque Française teams have collaborated to create the first-ever Virtual Reality (VR) / 360° interactive Doodle to celebrate the life and artistry of French illusionist and film director Georges Méliès".

While this is all a little silly, it's not just to promote Solo: A Star Wars Story. Fans are invited to wear their favorite Star Wars costumes. All you have to do is log into Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes [Free] on May the 4th and you'll receive Han Solo character shards. "May the Force be with you" and May the fourth are so damn similar why the hell shouldn't we connect the two?

Every great movie marathon has an excellent selection of food, and this isn't any different, but I do recommend putting a Star Wars twist on your platter. Not to honor the day or celebrate the Force. However, fans or even the studio wasn't the first ones to coin the term.

Directed by Ron Howard, Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Hail, Caesar's Alden Ehrenreich as Han, with Atlanta's Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and The Force Awakens' Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.

Since May the Fourth (rhymes) with the phrase, fans of the film franchise picked it up and have been celebrating it as Star Wars Day for decades now.

You could watch them one after the other, in whichever order you want. Since purchasing Lucasfilm and acquiring the rights to Star Wars in October 2012, The Walt Disney Company has celebrated Star Wars Day with festivities at Walt Disney World and Disneyland since 2013.
