The Official Star Wars Day is upon us, as you all know that day it MAY FOURTH aka MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU. To celebrate the day Lucasfilm and StarWars.com have a few things in the works. May the Fourth Be With You!
Star Wars fans celebrate their favorite saga year-round, but May the 4th is a special day for everyone to feel the power of the Force. In honor of this holiday that fans have created, a galaxy of special events and can’t-miss deals awaits to help commemorate this year’s “Star Wars Day.” Visit StarWars.com for a list of specials.
eCards at StarWars.com
Keep in touch with family and friends with the newly launched StarWars.com eCards, featuring imagery from the saga as well as brand new art. If you’ve got something to say, say it with Star Wars. This inaugural set of cards includes an assortment specially made for May the 4th. Short of a hologram delivered by an astromech droid, they’re the perfect Star Wars greeting.
The Clone Wars Season 4 Marathon
Season 5 is still months away, but you can relive all the action, drama, and twists of Season 4 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on StarWars.com. All 22 episodes will be available for viewing for a limited time, letting you catch up on episodes you might have missed, or revisit your favorite moments. Dive into the underwater action on Mon Cala, face the frontlines on shadowy world of Umbara, go undercover with Obi-Wan amid hardened criminals, and witness the shocking return of Darth Maul! And, yes, to make the wait for Season 5 even harder, you will get a first glimpse at what’s to come.
Special May the 4th Deals and Events
A number of vendors will be getting in on the May the 4th fun, whether online or at physical store locations.
Hot Topic, Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn are offering deep discounts on Star Wars goods that day. And that’s just the start! Visit StarWars.com for a full list of activities and sales.
A Mighty Fine Challenge
Mighty Fine wants to see your Star Wars designs, fit for t-shirts and other apparel. Submit art to Mighty Fine between May the 4th and May 25th, and be entered into a competition where fans can rate their favorite pieces. The more votes in the competition, the higher the stakes – with a grand prize that can grow up to $2,500. Check out Mighty Fine for more details.
Celebration VI is Coming
May the 4th is where the fun begins. The biggest party in the galaxy, though, is this August 23-26th, 2012 at Star Wars Celebration VI! The ultimate Star Wars fan event returns to Orlando, Florida with so much to see and do. Get the latest updates – and many new announcements on May the 4th.
 
Pit Droids App
The popular “Pit Droids” app game for ios devices. This entire weekend (May 4, 2012 - May 6, 2012), Pit Droids is available for FREE!
Clone Wars Adventures
To celebrate this holiday, Sony Online Entertainment will be offering Jedi, Sith and fans alike that log into their family-friendly virtual world, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, 40 booster points. In addition, as a special promotion, Jedi membership for Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures will be available for only $1.99. SOE has also teamed up with the official Star Wars website, StarWars.com, to provide users with a special code that will give players a special Nelona Dual-Bladed Lightsaber in Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures!
How will you spend May the 4th? Or better yet, what about revenge of the 6th?

Dazzler 5/4/2012 3:25:08 AM

Some day May the 4th might mean something....praying Lucas wakes up someday to the real fans. 

SinisterPryde 5/4/2012 12:33:52 PM

I hope I don't come across as a troll here but I am curious; what is a "real" fan?

Wiseguy 5/4/2012 3:07:49 PM

I'm not trolling either Sinister because all fans consider themselves the "real fans" hence I don't consider fans of Nolan's Batman true Batman fans but anyway not to change the subject.  I'd venture to say as far as Star Wars that the folk that still want or consider HanSolo the one who shot first and not Greedo think themselves the true fans, me I love everything SW, even the changes haven't bothered me.......only JarJar Binks

Anyway this is AVENGERS DAY this year and the force is with them

SinisterPryde 5/8/2012 1:46:56 AM

I think along the same lin Wise.  My question wasn't really aimed at that answer but to hopefully encourage people to question their own belief in the matter.  I know this is the interwebs and that means that you are never going to win any arguement or change anyone's mid regardless of how well thought out your response.  Nevertheless, I feel that when someone says they are a "real" fan they are, either by design or accident, putting themselves into an elitist position. 

Please note, Dazzler that I am not implying that you have done this or are trying to.  I realize that a lot of long time Star Wars fans were turned off by the prequels and the Special Editions of what were, in many opinions, perfectly fine movies.
