‘May the 4th be with you’ gifts for the Star Wars super fan

Star Wars fans have stayed true for nearly half a century


Reportedly, even George Lucas didn't believe in the original Star Wars movie. There weren't any sequels planned when the first film was released. It was a science-fiction movie that had a limited fan base. Lucas allegedly predicted it was going to be popular for a couple of weekends, but then die a quick death after the target audience had watched it. No one expected that nearly half a century later there would be new films and series announced and launched every year. And no one thought Star Wars would get its own day. Yet here we are, once again celebrating May the 4th.

10 ways to celebrate Star Wars Day

Celebrating Star Wars Day is a little like eating a peanut butter-filled chocolate cup — there's really no wrong way to do it. However, if you need some help brainstorming, here are a few things you can do:

  • Turn on Disney+ and watch your favorite film, series or episode.
  • Have a Star Wars-themed party where guests must dress up.
  • Go to or host a Star Wars trivia event or party.
  • Write or illustrate some fan fiction.
  • Listen to your favorite Star Wars soundtracks.
  • Treat yourself to some of those Star Wars toys and collectibles you've had your eye on.
  • Google "Star Wars events near me" and make plans or go on an adventure.
  • Take the day off and read a Star Wars book or a few comic books.
  • Finish building that Lego Star Wars Ultimate Millennium Falcon kit — it's only got 7,541 pieces.
  • Have a Star Wars gift exchange.
