Today is May The Fourth without Han Solo. The Star Wars Day, May 4, celebrates Star Wars created by George Lucas. It is observed by fans of the films. Observance of the holiday spread quickly due to Internet, social media, and grassroots celebrations.
The date was chosen for the easy pun on the catchphrase “May the Force be with you”— “May the Fourth be with you”. Even though the holiday was not actually created or declared by Lucasfilm, many Star Wars fans across the world choose to celebrate the holiday.
In 2011, the first organized celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Toronto Underground Cinema. Produced by Sean Ward and Alice Quinn, festivities included an Original Trilogy Trivia Game Show; a costume contest with celebrity judges; and the web’s best tribute films, mash-ups, parodies, and remixes on the big screen. The second annual edition took place on Friday, May 4, 2012.
Fans (even government officials) have celebrated Star Wars in a variety of ways in social media and on television.
Since 2013, The Walt Disney Company has officially observed the holiday with several Star Wars events and festivities at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Disney had purchased Lucasfilm including the rights to Star Wars in late 2012.
On Star Wars Day 2015, astronauts in the International Space Station watched Star Wars.
Revenge of the Fifth
Star Wars Day became so popular that May 5 has come to be called “Revenge of the Fifth”, a play on Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. On this day, fans join the “Dark Side” by celebrating the Sith Lords from the Star Wars series.
The civil war begins with Captain America and Iron Man causing a political rift. Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Rogers) doesn’t want to sign the Anti-Hero Registration, a law that limits his actions. but Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) wants to sign knowing there are actions because he doesn’t want more cities to be destroyed. I liked it when they were going against each other because the sequence was humorous and the jokes were hilarious. So Captain America thought the world is daring enough where you can’t rely on the government to protect this world.
Hospitaliky is a 1937 animated short from Popeye the Sailor series. It is a fantastic entry that is one of the best in the series thus far. This film is so unique and different than usual. Popeye and Bluto want to get in the hospital where Olive works so each of them try to be either very sick or hurt real bad, so they try to get hurt, but both have a sudden run of what would normally be very good luck. Out of desperation, Popeye feeds Bluto the spinach when they start fighting.
The Duck Doctor is a 1952 animated short that is the 64th Tom and Jerry cartoon. Tom shoots Little Quacker and it is up to Jerry to nurse and protect him from the cat. The animation is superb with the farm setting looking particularly fabulous, and there are lots of great gags at Tom’s expense. The ending where Tom digs a grave, smokes a cigarette and waits for the inevitable, falling into the hole when he is hit and he dies in the end.
Jesus (Hector Medina) a hairdresser who is timid to stay away from the Havana drag scene but than he styles wigs to have the courage to go on stage. Than Angel (Jorge Perugorría) from the audience saw his son and breaks this event up by punching his son because this is not the life he expected from his son. After Viva is estranged from his father for 15 years will they ever get back together and form a relationship or will they not see each for another 15 years? Emotions run wild in this film of father-and-son relationship.
“An emotion-filled drama that uncovers an authentic Cuba.” – Guy Kramer, Indiewire
“Vivid and Fresh. Remarkable performance. The other star of the film is Havana itself, its decrepit glory marvellously evoked.” – Casper Llewellyn Smith, The Guardian
