May the Fourth be with you


Fans will be able to experience the scope and grandeur of these beloved Star Wars films in a live symphonic concert experience, as the Star Wars Film Concert Series premieres from September 15 through October 7 at David Geffen Hall in New York City.

If there's one day that Star Wars fans eagerly anticipate every year (beside the release date for the next Star Wars movie) it's May 4, due to the clever pun "May The Fourth Be With You". You be the judge.

The Royals, knowing full well of the day's importance, tweeted that they will be giving away a "Star Wars" specific bobblehead featuring catcher Drew Butera on September 10. There are a handful of really great games that take place in the Star Wars Universe. Whether it's Leia buns or Rey's buns in the video provided, these are ways to bring the Force with you on any day of the week. And, it turns out, plenty of your favorite Instagram celebrity pets are proud Star Wars fanatics, too. While the idea of May the 4th did not start with Lucasfilm, the film company that created Star Wars has fully embraced the spirit of fandom that makes the day so special.
