‘May the fourth be with you’: 5 ways you can celebrate Star Wars Day

Tomorrow is May 4th, also known as Star Wars Day.

(The date was chosen because ‘May the fourth’ sounds like ‘May the force be with you’, but if you’re reading this article, you probably already knew that!)

Here’s some of the best ways you can mark the occasion:

Watch Disney Gallery: The Book of Boba Fett on Disney+

Disney+ are releasing the newest instalment in the series tomorrow – what better way to celebrate than with a new release? The series is already on Disney+ in its entirety, but this new episode will give the hard-core fans amongst us some extra details.

Not much has been said about what the Disney Gallery release will contain, but if the Mandalorian‘s Gallery episode was anything to go by, we’ll be getting a deep dive into the production of the series.

According to, a popular blog for new releases, the episode “explores the behind-the-scenes story of the legendary bounty hunter’s return to Tatooine with mercenary Fennec Shand, seeking to claim the territory once run by Jabba the Hutt”, as “filmmakers, cast and crew reveal never-before-seen footage, groundbreaking technology and the practical effects that brought it all to life”.

Watch a Trilogy

As it’s a bit optimistic to try and watch all of the films in one day, perhaps try and give three a go. Watch your favourite of the trilogies, or maybe try one you’ve not seen in a while.

Fans have disagreed over which of the three trilogies should be classed as the ‘best’… what do you think? Vote below:
