What STAR WARS fans have celebrated for years is now OFFICIAL!

May the fourth officially be with you.

The California Legislature voted today to declare May 4 “Star Wars Day” in recognition of a Disneyland theme park slated to open later this month. That’s why the Yoda balloon is flying outside our state capitol!

It’s a play on the Star Wars’ phrase “may the force be with you.” The resolution by Democratic Assemblyman Tom Daly says it’s the largest single-site expansion in the park’s history! But Star Wars geeks have been celebrating this for years! The spirit of Obi Wan, Han, Lea, Luke and Yoda lives on. So if you see Chewbacca, R2D2, C3pO, or any other characters in your neighborhood this weekend…just say “These are not the droids you’re looking for”!!!
