Star Wars fans celebrate May 4th

18 May 2017

Over two years of unending galactic conflict, fans identified several infuriating elements of the experience and, fortunately, DICE has remedied six of the biggest offenders for sequel Star Wars Battlefront 2, which arrives in November of this year. These superfans actually got to experience that, and it all actually goes to benefit a great cause.

May 4 is designated as the annual Star Wars Day, due to the clever play on the words of the Star Wars motto, "May the force be with you".

As possibly the most popular franchise in the history of pop culture, Star Wars is huge. StarWars.com has those and more, as well as crafty "Star Wars" party favor ideas. "Congratulations", the website said, adding that the day took off once the Internet began connecting fans. It might also have something to do with that day being Cinco de Mayo, but to this day fans still like to let their "evil sides" come out the day after "Star Wars" Day. And, it turns out, plenty of your favorite Instagram celebrity pets are proud Star Wars fanatics, too. Some fans dress up as their favourite characters, others host Star Wars-themed parties, or the die-hard ones attempt to watch the 10 movies in the series. Disney owns the Star Wars franchise. Share your affiliation with these Texas-inspired Star Wars logos.

No matter how you choose to celebrate as a fan, May the Fourth be with You!
