Wordy Wednesday 440: “Mary & R2D2”

“R-Two, the message says, ‘help me Obi-Wan, you’re my only hope.’” —Mary Farace

Tomorrow is Star Wars Day. May 4, celebrates the Star Wars films created by George Lucas. (Disney had purchased Lucasfilm including the rights to Star Wars in late 2012.)  This informal holiday was initially observed by fans of the movies and observance of spread quickly through media and grassroots celebrations.

The date was chosen for the easy pun on the catchphrase “May the Force be with you” as “May the Fourth be with you.” Even though the holiday was not actually created or declared by Lucasfilm, many Star Wars fans across the world have chosen to celebrate the holiday.
