May 4 is considered a holiday by many fans of Star wars and they take the opportunity to celebrate the films of the series and its "culture". The date was chosen following a pun made with a famous phrase from the film. Thus, May the Force be with youwhich is pronounced May the Force be with you in English, has been changed to May the fourth be with you ("May the 4th of May be with you").


"The world of Star wars is inspired by numerous cinematographic works, but also literary works and real historical facts. "
