Millions of Star Wars Fans Around the World Prepare to Celebrate May the 4th
SAN FRANCISCO -- April 30, 2013
Since the very first Star Wars movie came out in 1977, fans everywhere have
made the galactic saga their own and found creative ways to celebrate their
love of the Force. One of the most visible ways is annually transforming the
date of May 4^th into “May the Fourth,” the day that Star Wars fandom has
created to share their passion around the world. Fans of all ages wear their
favorite Star Wars items, partake in parties and screenings, and pass on
messages of “May the Force be with you” in person and online.
Lucasfilm has long supported Star Wars fans in their grassroots celebrations,
whether they be extravagant or small. Visit Lucasfilm’s official May the 4^th
