May The 4th Be With You Fan-art Compilation
It’s May 4, and today is the Star Wars day. To celebrate, here is a compilation of out-of-this-world fan-art.
Hiya! Seph here! Every May 4 since 2011, thousands of fans of Star Wars around the world join forces to pay tribute to the George Lucas’ saga. This is, in fact, a celebration created by fans for fans which make this festivity more relevant among fans than others organised by Disney/ LucasFilm itself. As a “fun fact” the idea for this catchphrase was first used on May 4, 1979, the day Margaret Thatcher took office as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Her party congratulated her using an advertisement in The London Evening News whose header said “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.” Years later, certain groups adopted the same catchphrase to celebrate Luke Skywalker Day on social media. It was not until the year 2011 when the first organised celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
I’ve been a Star Wars fan since I was a kid and honestly, I love the six episodes of the George Lucas’ saga, but if you ask me what my favourite episode is, I would say, for sure, it’s Revenge of The Sith. As most people did, I started watching the original trilogy, and I loved all about them. I’ve never watched anything similar, and Darth Vader became my favourite villain of all times instantly. Then, the prequel trilogy came, and I adored it too, this was epic, and I could understand the philosophical, political, and psychological themes behind it. I loved everything about them.
To celebrate, I’ve decided to collect some great Star Wars fan-art to show how much the fans love this saga. Of course, there are tons of artworks on the web, and I can’t post them all, but if you want to add some of this list, please leave the link in the comments, and I’ll gladly add them during the day.
I hope you enjoyed this little collection of Star Wars fan-art as much as I did. This is an extraordinary day, and I invite you to celebrate it with your friends and family watching the films, why not? Don’t forget to visit the websites of the artists and support their incredible talent. Until the next time!
