Star Wars Day 2016 is almost here. May 4th is the official celebration day of the greatest film franchise of all time and has become extremely popular over the last few years. People from all walks of life, regardless of their level of fandom, can enjoy their love for Star Wars with the community.
We had so much fun celebrating Alien Day (4/26) and creating our “Top Ways to Celebrate” list that we thought we’d do the same for Star Wars day. Below, we’ve outlined all the Exclusives, Deals & Fun Ways to Celebrate that we could find. We’ll also be coming back to this article and updating it as the week progresses. We know there will be more fun to add and we’ll do our best to keep you in the loop.
