Star Wars Day

How to pronounce names and places in the Star Wars films

The Star Wars franchise is based around a film series created by director George Lucas depicting the adventures of a set of characters from "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away".

May 4 is considered a holiday by some Star Wars fans to celebrate the film series, its books, and its culture. The date was chosen for the pun on the catchphrase "May the Force be with you" — "May the Fourth be with you". Even though the holiday was not actually created or declared by Lucasfilm, many Star Wars fans across the world choose to celebrate the holiday.
