About Star Wars Day

When is Star Wars Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 4

Today is Star Wars Day, a May 4 inter-galactic holiday. It exists all because of a play on words! This holiday is held on May the Fourth, because of a famous quote from the hugely popular science fiction series blockbuster, “May the Force (Fourth) be with you”.

The franchise produced 12 movies in all. It includes three sets of trilogies (9 films). In addition, there are two standalone films and one animated movie. This franchise is one of the two greatest sci-fi series ever produced. We will let you debate whether Star Wars or Star Trek is the greatest). It features numerous heroes, including Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Princess Leia, the Wookie, and countless others. There is no shortage of bad guys either. Among them are Darth Vader, Kylo Ren (Formerly Ben Solo), and of course the Evil Emperor.

Did You Know? Some call this holiday Luke Skywalker Day. But, this day is about much more than just one character in this greatest epic movie series of all time.

Great ways to celebrate Star Wars Day:

  • Watch any of the great Star Wars movies.

History and Origin of Star Wars Day

While we are so glad that this day exists, its creation was a fluke. In 2005, a German News TV channel N24 interview erroneously translated this famous Star Wars quote. In German, “May the force be with you”, was incorrectly interpreted as “We are with you on May 4th”. We do believe, that if this error had not occurred, someone, somewhere would have created this day.
