For Star Wars fans, May 4 is known as Star Wars Day, because of the aural similarity between “May the fourth” and “May the Force,” as in “May the Force be with you,” which is an oft-spoken phrase throughout the Star Wars films. The pun-happy name was first celebrated by fans back in 2011, and in 2013, the Walt Disney Company officially got in on the action, holding special Star Wars events and celebrations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
May 4 isn’t the only day claimed by Star Wars fans, however, as, in recent years, May 5 started being referred to as Revenge of the Fifth, which is a play on the title, Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith.
So for all you Star Wars fans out there celebrating, and in honor of May the fourth, we compiled a list of every time the phrase “May the Force” is spoken in the Star Wars saga. The nostalgia is strong with this one.
