Burbank, CA (The Hollywood Times) May 6, 2024 – “May the 4th be with you” and “Revenge of the 5th” is a playful pun on the famous phrase from Star Wars, “May the Force be with you,” and “Revenge of the Sith”.

Star Wars enthusiasts celebrate May 4th as Star Wars Day because of the phonetic similarity between “fourth” and “Force”, as well as “fifth” and “Sith”. It is a day when fans around the world come together to celebrate the beloved franchise by watching the movies, shows, dressing up as their favorite characters, attending events, and sharing their love for the legendary franchise on social media. The celebration has grown over the years and has become an unofficial holiday for fans.
