The annual Star Wars Day has proven to be worth celebrating, whether a fan or not.
Attention Rebellions! Though the day has passed there are some memories that will linger with you for a while now. And here to be with you, it’s that time of the year when one must leave everything aside to celebrate the iconic space saga by George Lucas, Star Wars and embrace the force within you. While it all started in a galaxy, far away, people have celebrated Star Wars in a galaxy, which is not so far away.
Talking like Yoda
Yes! Hear us right you did! Since was Star Wars day, it was the best way to celebrate and reliving the Star Wars memories than starting with the oldest, wisest and the most powerful Jedi from that universe. His peculiar language, Yodish is similar to English but in a disordered sentence structure where the object comes first followed by the subject and the verb instead of the usual subject-verb-object order used in English sentences. So people still love to, ‘Yoda, talked like’ the entire day with friends/colleagues or throw a Star Wars-themed party and’ ‘Yodish language at the party interact in’.
Star Wars Lego Set
Lego has introduced a new line of a 279-piece building set based on “Star Wars” to celebrate the classic saga’s 20th anniversary this year. The set comes with three miniature figures of Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker, and Padme Amidala. The brand also has plenty of other building sets from the chronicle already on the shelves. So, invest in one and spend the day building your own model of Anakin Skywalker’s custom-built podracer.
Star wars movie marathon
With all the events, Cosplay, merchandise, and other celebrations taking place everywhere, it’s easy for fans to miss out the crucial part of Star Wars Day, the movies. The celebrations are not complete without fans revisiting all the movies that have made this series so beloved. And, it’s never Star Wars if one is wandering alone, gangs were a must to join in the movie marathon, who has never watched the movies before.
Chill even if 4th is gone. 31st is yet to come and your fandom for Star Wars won’t be complete if you don’t visit the much- anticipated Disneyland’s new Star Wars themed Galaxy’s Edge land, awaited to open on May 31. Imagine getting a chance to fly the Millennium Falcon, join the Resistance, build a custom lightsaber, and design a droid. Excited already? Then start saving up for this a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Disney World in Orlando.
Revenge Of The Fifth (of May)
Today is not less special either.This unofficial fan holiday celebrated on May 5th, the day after Star Wars Day marks the louder side of Star Wars. Rhyming with the Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, this the day covers the dark side of the force universe, with all things silly and funny, which is not necessarily a part of the original trilogy.
Last but not the least, the nostalgia will not be complete without remembering Late Carrie Fisher who portrayed the role of the popular self-rescuing Princess Leia and made her last appearance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But, as emotional as you may get didn’t’ she says, “Years of living longer makes you look worse!”
