THE LOWDOWN ON MAY 4TH
A special day to celebrate all that is Star Wars™.
Owned and celebrated by the fans, MAY 4th is internationally recognised as Star Wars Day. The Star Wars™ franchise has achieved cult status, and not just amongst the movie going fans – the world’s greatest directors regard it as one of their biggest influences, paving the way for modern film-making.
Star Wars™ movies bring people together, no matter what their background is. The legacy that George Lucas created lives on in people hearts and minds. The global fan club is vast, from people who have enjoyed the movies for entertainment to those who have become super fans, who cosplay and attend Comic-Cons.
It’s celebrated worldwide.
But it all started in Toronto, Canada - in 2011, when fans organised a game show and costume contest during Toronto Underground Cinema. The word spread and the popularity grew. Star Wars™ Day gained momentum and earned a place on the calendar.
Always May 4th, a play on the words May the Force be with you. Simple but true.
Star Wars™ Parties, Movie Marathons. Trivia Quizzes. Costume Contests. Cosplay.
Whatever you want to do, anything goes. There are large events planned worldwide – exhibitions, product launches, space centre tours – you get the idea.
Or you could just treat yourself to a new pair of Po-Zu x Star Wars™ shoes here.
HAPPY STAR WARS™ DAY
