May the Fourth Be With You on Star Wars Day Star Wars Day You may be thinking that the original Star Wars film was released on this day in 1977 making Star Wars Day a fairly cool concept. Alas the film was release on May 25 1977 and the connection to Star Wars Day get even worse.

Like being trapped at a bad sci-fi convention where hoards of nerds are racing about yelling "May the force be with you", the connection to May 4 is simply that FOURTH and FORCE sound similar if you lack diction and are chewing gum. As the film was released in May, we are stuck with this atrocity of a pun for a holiday.

I'm a huge fan of Star Wars, having seen all the films at their original release. I even like Clone Wars. George Lucas is a bit of a nutjob, but I dig the Star Wars series of films. I think it would be far more appropriate to have a Star Wars Day on the 25th to commemorate the original film being released on May 25, 1977. Oh well. What can you do?
