Today is the unofficial holiday of the Star Wars franchise known as May 4, or as “Fusion” calls it May The 4th… Be With You!
Happy Star Wars Day. We know you’re reppin’ your favorite Star Wars gear to let other members of the club know that you’re in on the holiday. The science-fiction film saga has created a lexicon of its own all around the world. Phrases like “Luke, I am your father” and “Do. Or do not. There is no try” will forever be mimicked by super-fans around the globe. Film director and producer, George Lucas has heavily impacted our society with the narrative of films, the creation of iconic characters and the popularity of “fantasy” films. Whether you’re wearing a Darth Vader t-shirt, The Mandalorian clogs, and/or your The Child flannel— today is all about our love for the intergalactic space opera.
We know you own all 11 films but the real question is which order are you watching them in? We prefer chronological order starting with the prequel trilogy, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. So get comfortable, grab your Bantha milk (Blue milk) and popcorn to let the days of watching begin. But before you get too settled you may want to find out how you can participate in the May 4th activities below.
Las Vegas may be known for gambling, shiny lights and for the hot weather but that doesn’t make it a “Galaxy Far, Far Away” compared to other cities. Local businesses are welcoming the holiday with open arms because as Han Solo once said, “It’s not wise to upset a Wookie.” The Vegas fandom is lightsaber ready and they’re prepared to take on the dark side. Bring the Star Wars fanatic in your life on a journey in and around the city of sin to find all of the best deals, activities, games and fun bites to honor the legacy franchise.
