  • Star Wars Day Fans reckon the Queen's meeting is to announce she's one with the force

New rumours from the Star Wars fan community have suggested that a showdown between General Leia and Supreme Leader Snoke could take place at the start of the forthcoming film, The Last Jedi. Google took to their blog to commemorate the occasion, offering up insights on the most popular Star Wars content on the Play Store. Or herds? Or schools? "I had just come back from the "Star Wars 40th Anniversary" celebration in the US, and I am happy now to bring the beauty of the Star Wars universe home to Taiwan".

For years that catchphrase has brought Star Wars fans together to celebrate the franchise in private and public events on May 4, a phenomenon that has been pushed into light speed as more fans have connected over the Internet.

A long, long time ago, in a galaxy that looks a lot like this one, someone realized that "May the Fourth" sounds like "May the force (be with you)" and alas, Star Wars Day was born.

Author Alan Arnold chronicles the earliest known records of the phrase "May the 4th" happened during the so-called day of victory of Britain's first woman prime minister, Margaret Thatcher.

May the dapper Force be with you. It is a day to celebrate all things Star Wars.

Today, and only today, really, you can get away with saying "May the 4th be with you". "Congratulations, ' further proof of the extent to which Star Wars has influenced us all".

As in the books, in Star Wars Rebels a central piece of Grand Admiral Thrawn's character is his careful study of his enemies - often accomplished by reviewing the art of their culture.
