Win on Star Wars Day
May the Fourth be with you today with our new Star Wars™ competition. Win £100 worth of Star Wars memorabilia including Stamp Covers, LEGO Pens and Stamp Sets.
A pun on the infamous catchphrase “may the Force be with you”, May the Fourth is celebrated by Star Wars fans across the globe. Since 2013, The Walt Disney Company has also officially observed the holiday with various events at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
In addition, Revenge of the Fifth, another pun on the more recent film Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith will be marked tomorrow.
Last year, in our article May the Fourth Be With You we covered the fantastic Star Wars stamp collection. This was produced to mark the release of the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens and you could now be the lucky winner in our Star Wars™ Day competition.
The Last Jedi
We are now all eagerly awaiting the release of the next Star Wars film. It is expected to start where the last film ended with the first meeting between Rey, played by Daisy Ridley and Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill.
A few weeks ago the first trailer for Star Wars™: The Last Jedi was revealed. Also known as Episode VIII, this film will be second in the latest trilogy. It is due for release on 15th December and will no doubt be one of the biggest box office hits of the year.
Whilst excitement is at fever pitch for this new addition to the franchise, it will also be tinged with great sadness. Carrie Fisher, whose portrayal as Princess Leia won so many fans young and old, died on 27th December 2016.
Fisher had already shot all her scenes for this film prior to her death. Therefore, her appearance will be both a fitting yet bittersweet tribute to an actress who had inspired so many of us both on and off screen.
