Why is Star Wars Day celebrated on May the Fourth?

Coincidentally, this year's Star Was Day marks 40 years since the first movie, Star Wars: Episode IV - A new Hope, was released.

Butera is not a huge "Star Wars" fan ("I've seen a few of them", he said), but he knows enough about the two sides of the Force. "Can you show all the stars from "Star Wars" singing 'All Star" to celebrate?" The novel introduced many fan favourite characters including Mara Jade and the blue-skinned Admiral himself.

Anyway, combining Star Wars with Lego, still the GREATEST TOY EVER, is bound to get people excited.

Government officials from various parts of the world, including Australia, Russia, Canada and the United Kingdom, also shared messages under the tagline May the Fourth be with you.

Cristiano Ronaldo as good as Pele and George Best, says Phil Neville
On 16 minutes, Oblak pulled off a fine save as Raphael Varane looked to guide a corner from Toni Kroos into the bottom corner. He opened the scoring on Tuesday after Atletico's defense failed to fully clear a cross into the area.

At Wayne-based retailer Toys R Us, Lego Star Wars sets are 20 percent off through May 8, Rogue One action figures are 25 percent off though May 20 and Star Wars skateboards are 20 percent off. Code: STARWARSDAY17.

One thing is certain, Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be the movie event of the year when it hits cinemas worldwide this Christmas.

Some fans even boldly suggested that Thursday's widely anticipated announcement from Buckingham Palace was Star Wars-related. Now you can rejoin Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), as they scramble to secure the Death Star plans from the Empire and get them to the rebel alliance.

"Star Wars'" future, by contrast, is being meticulously planned.

US Hosting ASEAN Foreign Ministers to Discuss North Korea Threat
The ASEAN foreign leaders also discussed the increasing tensions in the Korean peninsula due to North Korea's nuclear threats. Murphy said Tillerson had stressed that this process needed " room and space " through avoiding fortifying existing claims.

The day is a chance for character costumes, trivia contests and general celebration of the wildly popular film series. Is there any reason other than the similar sounds between "May the fourth" and "may the Force"?

This year, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" will premiere in December, the second film in the "Star Wars" sequel trilogy.

May the Fourth be with you!
