Star Wars Day: May the 4th Be With You!

by at . Comments

Happy weekend, and May the 4th be with you all!

It's Star Wars Day! Get it? May the fourth?

If any fan base were capable of hijacking a random day on the calendar and turning it into their own holiday based on a play on words, it would be Star Wars fans.

Not that you need a reason to celebrate the other 364 days, but whether you're a Jedi-level Star Wars geek or a mere padawan learner, today is a great excuse!

It's also a particularly exciting Star Wars Day, with the revival of the franchise now slated for 2015. Yes, after all this time, there will be a Star Wars Episode 7.

You can guarantee it will top Episodes 1-3, too.

Seriously. The third trilogy and subsequent spinoffs would be worth watching if only as a palate cleanser. Jar Jar Binks, people. Jar Jar F--king Binks.

We kid, mostly.

The upcoming Episode VII is so exciting because George Lucas' franchise is so awesome. Simple as that. What other films have their own holiday?!

Also, can you believe that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford will reportedly be back as their iconic characters when the franchise returns?

So raise your glass and give it up for Luke, Leia, Obi-Wan, Han, Chewbecca, Vader, Boba Fett, Akbar ("It's a trap!!!!") and the rest of the intergalactic gang.

And always remember: Han shot first.
