Well, only two days away this Friday, as you ALL know is MAY FOURTH aka MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!! And then we get to celebrate an extra day with Cinco de Mayo! Ok, not quite Star Wars-themed, but I'm sure we can all find a cantina somewhere and slam some Yoda sodas, pourque no?
Anyway MTV Geek has been handed the first look at all the activities planned for this galactic event!
May the Fourth Be With You!
Star Wars fans celebrate their favorite saga year-round, but May the 4th is a special day for everyone to feel the power of the Force. In honor of this holiday that fans have created, a galaxy of special events and can’t-miss deals awaits to help commemorate this year’s “Star Wars Day.” Visit StarWars.com as May the 4th approaches for a list of specials.
eCards at StarWars.com
Keep in touch with family and friends with the newly launched StarWars.com eCards, featuring imagery from the saga as well as brand new art. If you’ve got something to say, say it with Star Wars. This inaugural set of cards includes an assortment specially made for May the 4th. Short of a hologram delivered by an astromech droid, they’re the perfect Star Wars greeting.
The Clone Wars Season 4 Marathon
Season 5 is still months away, but you can relive all the action, drama, and twists of Season 4 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on StarWars.com. All 22 episodes will be available for viewing for a limited time, letting you catch up on episodes you might have missed, or revisit your favorite moments. Dive into the underwater action on Mon Cala, face the frontlines on shadowy world of Umbara, go undercover with Obi-Wan amid hardened criminals, and witness the shocking return of Darth Maul! And, yes, to make the wait for Season 5 even harder, you will get a first glimpse at what’s to come....
Special May the 4th Deals and Events
A number of vendors will be getting in on the May the 4th fun, whether online or at physical store locations. Hot Topic, Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn are offering deep discounts on Star Wars goods that day. And that’s just the start! Visit StarWars.com for a full list of activities and sales.
A Mighty Fine Challenge
Mighty Fine wants to see your Star Wars designs, fit for t-shirts and other apparel. Submit art to Mighty Fine between May the 4th and May 25th, and be entered into a competition where fans can rate their favorite pieces. The more votes in the competition, the higher the stakes – with a grand prize that can grow up to $2,500. Check out Mighty Fine for more details.
Celebration VI is Coming
May the 4th is where the fun begins. The biggest party in the galaxy, though, is this August 23-26th, 2012 at Star Wars Celebration VI! The ultimate Star Wars fan event returns to Orlando, Florida with so much to see and do. Get the latest updates – and many new announcements on May the 4th.
Pit Droids App
The popular “Pit Droids” app game for ios devices. This entire weekend (May 4, 2012 - May 6, 2012), Pit Droids is available for FREE!
Clone Wars Adventures
To celebrate this holiday, Sony Online Entertainment will be offering Jedi, Sith and fans alike that log into their family-friendly virtual world, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, 40 booster points.
