Join James as he takes us on a tour of the great events and releases coming out over this weekend designed to help any and all Star Wars fans celebrate the greatest space fantasy of all…

This Sunday is May 4th, just a regular day for most, but for Star Wars fans around the world it’s considered a holiday. A day to celebrate all things Star Wars and we have the late British Prime Minister Margret Thatcher to thank for it. On May 4, 1979, Margret Thatcher’s political team placed an advertisement in The London Evening News congratulating her on becoming prime minister, the advertisement had the headline “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie.
