May the Fourth has become the unofficial holiday of the franchise due to it being a homonym of the iconic “May the Force” be with you phrase.

But until that dark day happens, let’s enjoy the day and engage in a little much-needed escapism with a franchise that has dominated the imagination for over 40 years.
