Star Wars fans worldwide are celebrating May the Fourth Be With You, International Star Wars Day. Recognizing Star Wars on May the fourth supposedly dates back to 1979, when Margaret Thatcher took office as U.K. Prime Minister and was congratulated with an ad in the London Evening News which read, “May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations.” This was obviously a play on the famous words that Obi-Wan uttered to Luke. Many hardcore fans will be dressed in Star Wars cosplay, Star Wars bounding or watching every single Star Wars movie.
Businesses such asFandangoNOW has gotten in on the action. Last year they offered fans a chance to rent The Force Awakens for $4 as a way to celebrate the holiday and this year’s offering will be Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at the price of $4 for May the Fourth Be With You! If you don’t already own the film and are itching to celebrate the Star Wars holiday this is a perfect chance to get in on the action. So to all of you that will be sitting back, drinking your Blue Bantha Milk and getting ready to go to a galaxy far, far away, enjoy FandangoNOW offer, and May the Fourth Be With You!
