May the 4th has become a big Star Wars celebration event. 

While you can celebrate Star Wars any day, May the 4th is a nod to the famous May the Force Be With You quote from the original A New Hope film which is then uttered in nearly every Star Wars film by one character or another. 

So here are 7 things you can do to celebrate Star Wars!

Pass it forward

Introduce a friend who has never seen Star Wars to one of the greatest space operas that there has ever been! Believe it or not, some people have never seen the films. That’s on them but you can introduce them to the far far away galaxy.  Sit back on the sofa, crank the surround sound to eleven and enjoy the classic film. 

Watch the films in order

If you’re up for a marathon, you can watch ALL THE STAR WAR FILMS in chronological order. That means prequels, the OT, the Disney trilogy and the side films like Solo! 

It will take you a couple of day and nights but you’re up fo  it champ. 

It time is a factor, consider the Machete order!

Get a Star Wars tattoo!

All the kids are getting them, even the cool kids! How about this Futurama cross over or this amazing Luke Skywalker piece:

Watch a film that inspired Star Wars

It’s well known that the original film is an amalgam of the films and books that inspired George Lucas. From The Searchers to Dune to Forbidden Planet and John Carter of Mars. Why not explore one of these works that inspired and influence Star Wars? 

You could even watch George Lucas’s first science fiction film, THX 1138. You did know about that one right?

Explore the concept art of Ralph McQuarrie and Doug Chiang

Ralph was the artist that helped Lucas design the world of Star Wars. From the first drawing sketches of our favourite droids, the creation of Darth Vader and the Rancor in Jedi he was across a lot of the design in the original trilogy. 

For the prequels, Doug Chiang become the new lead concept designer and gave us these wonderful creations:

Roger, roger

The work that went into designing the Attack of Clones was simply incredible.

Dress up in your favorite character!

A bit of Star Wars cosplay never hurt any body so grab your glad rags and dress up as a hero or villain as you like!

Consider this thought:

Some people can get really into plot holes in films. 

Most films have them. 

Our view is to take the films as they are and enjoy them accordingly. 

Or you could jump off the deep end into the plot holes of The Last Jedi.

Plot twists, now that’s a Star Wars thing!
