May the fourth be with you.

Very few film-franchises in the world of cinema have cultivated the kind of fandom and patronage as the Star Wars series. Touted as a game changer in the genre of science fiction, it has remained a fan favourite ever since its first release decades ago.

Every year, 4 May is celebrated as World Star Wars day, thanks to it being homophonous to the legendary franchise’s iconic phrase “may to force be with you”.
