May the 4th be with you this Star Wars Day
According to WIRED magazine, none of us will live to see the final Star Wars movie. When Walt Disney Company bought Lucasfilm in 2012, they got on board with the idea to make a new Star Wars film every year for as long as we will come to see them. If the franchise’s track record is anything to go by, their $4 billion investment in the Star Wars Universe was a pretty safe bet, for a good few decades. No Hollywood original franchise has grown as big or lasted as long as Star Wars because it’s a story that keeps on giving, set in a dense, complex world that we haven’t grown tired of since it first appeared on screen in 1977. 40 years is a long time for something to stay relevant, especially with our increasingly disposable-friendly attitude toward pop culture. Yet here we are, another Star Wars Day, with pundits and fans alike as excited as ever to celebrate. Join the global fandom and celebrate this Star Wars day with product inspired by the Star Wars universe, and of course, may the Force be with you.
