May The 4th Be With You

 

Star Wars Day - May 4th, 2019

 

Adapted from the phrase “May the Force be with you,” May the 4th began as a quirky play off words used to celebrate the worldwide obsession with George Lucas’ space odyssey, Star Wars. At its inception, May 4th was only recognized in niche circles by those infatuated with space travel and lightsabers. However, as enthusiasm for the brand expanded, so did the popularity of this little-known novelty holiday into a global cultural phenomenon.

 

The long-loved film series began back in 1977 with the creation of the first-ever Star Wars. Over the course of the next thirty years, the original three films chronicling the journey of the young Jedi Luke Skywalker expanded to include three original trilogy films, two prequel films, and three sequel films. Tallying up to a grand total of eleven films, the Star Wars franchise finds itself in the company of a rare group of cinema whose popularity exponentially increases with the number of movies produced. Other films nestled in this category include Godzilla (29 films), James Bond (24 films), Star Trek (11 films), Marvel Cinematic Universe (11 films), Batman (11 films), The Fast and the Furious (10 films), Harry Potter (8 films), and X-Men (8 films).^

 

Ranking below the Marvel Cinematic Universe and above Harry Potter, Star Wars is considered to be the second most profitable long-running film franchises ever produced estimating over $9.3 billion in sales worldwide.*
