May the 4th be with you.
If you have no idea how long it takes to make the Kessel Run and you don’t know your Dewback from your Tauntaun, then you’re probably not putting on your finest Star Wars regalia today for the first-ever lockdown May the 4th Be With You celebration. This is normally the day when aficionados of George Lucas’ space epic celebrate their love of everything Skywalker.
But with the much of the world staying home in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s celebration is a bit different. So as we celebrate from our bedrooms and backyards, here’s a look back at some of the best Star Wars fanboy/girl moments from the likes of Ariana Grande, Michael Jackson, Blink-182, Lauren Jaurwgui and more.
