May the fourth be with you!
It’s every Star Wars fan’s most anticipated day of the year: 4 May. Just as 14 March has been unofficially dedicated to all the maths and science nerds out there, another quirk of the calendar means that today is the day when Star Wars fans from around the world share their love of the movie franchise.
In case you were unaware (or don’t have a Twitter account), our YouTube faves are some of the biggest Star Wars fans out there. Because of this, it comes as no surprise to us that they’d get in on the action and share their love of the films. From sharing their favourite moments to wowing us with some impressive cosplay, here’s how they celebrated #StarWarsDay!
Two worlds collide

We have to applaud George Buckland, a.k.a. Mini Matt Smith, for his dedication. Only he would think to steal the Doctor’s TARDIS in order to infinitely relive the magic that is 4 May. Hey, is there any way we could borrow the TARDIS from time to time? There are a few days we ourselves would like to revisit.
You can knight with a lightsaber?
Yes this a picture of me knighting @WarwickADavis in my parents living room. #StarWarsDay #MayThe4thBeWithYou pic.twitter.com/NUIsqtTweZ

Okay, Daniel M. Jones, we have two questions for you:
1) How did this opportunity come about?
2) Why didn’t you invite us along to witness this? Everyone knows we’re fans of both Star Wars and Warwick!

One look at Sneaky Zebra‘s channel shows a love for Star Wars that knows no bounds, so of course they’d get in on the cosplay action! We’re not going to lie, we’re pretty impressed with this one – our cosplays never look half this good!
Today is #MayThe4thBeWithYou which is #StarWarsDay and it’s days like today which make me miss working for Disney😩

No-one says you can’t go back for the day, Coral Francis. We can only imagine what goes on in the most magical place on Earth during Star Wars Day. (It would probably make us experience unlimited heart-eyes.)
We need a new Star Wars movie, now!
#StarWarsDay Why wasn’t Solo released today? That would have been so good #MayThe4thBeWithYou pic.twitter.com/J0mRrka4QT

If only big Hollywood execs thought like you, Connor Ward. They missed the PERFECT opportunity.
They freak us out
I might be married to a Star Wars geek, but they still freak me out! #maythe4thbewithyou https://t.co/7BEcXKSdWQ pic.twitter.com/3SWkIrB8l0

We’re not going to lie, Giovanna Fletcher, Stormtroopers are quite intimidating!
The Ricky Gervais joke
Happy #StarWarsDay young Padawans.. May the 4th be with you!
Throwback to when we got @rickygervais in for our Rebel party! pic.twitter.com/Yym8EZdU2x

We would love to spend a day at the Yogscast office! With all the antics they get up to, we’re sure it’d be one to remember… We might also steal a few ideas on how to make our own office like theirs. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, after all!
The best scene
Happy Star Wars Day everyone!
Here’s my favourite shot of all Star Wars.
I don’t need to explain myself. I just love it.#MayTheFourthBeWithYou pic.twitter.com/V7F7yw8SHw

This is one of our favourite scenes too, Dean Dobbs! Just seeing it makes us want to re-watch the film!
The most exciting part of May

We’re sorry your birthday is being overshadowed, Jas Ratchford, but you have a point. NOTHING is more exciting than Star Wars Day!
Are you geeking out yet?
Don’t lie to us, we know you called in sick from work just to binge-watch the entire Star Wars franchise. Don’t worry, we won’t judge. In fact, we may have done the same thing… Just don’t tell the bosses! (They think Star Trek is far superior… Crazy, right?)
