Catching bits and pieces of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, was fun over the weekend. Listening to my husband dish with my sister’s guy (both are comic book aficionados) I was able to introduce my son to a series I enjoy as well as listen to the fellows dish about the upcoming movie and break down the existing six movies.
Today is the unofficial holiday to celebrate one of the biggest pop cultural phenomenon ever. May 4 is considered a holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate the franchise’s film series, books and culture. The date was chosen as ‘May the 4th’ sounds similar to the series’ popular phrase – “May the Force be with you”, in which fans commonly say “May the fourth be with you.”
The line “May the Force be with you,” is spoken several times in the films by members of the rebel alliance before they embark on a mission against the Empire.
