Folks around the world are marking this year’s “Star Wars” Day in spectacular style.
Fans paid tribute this Friday, May 4, by riffing on the movie franchise’s iconic “may the Force be with you” catchphrase. Police services, celebrities, sports teams and more are all celebrating the date in their own amusing ways.
Here’s a sampling of the best tweets so far:
Good morning from D Unit!— CMPG (@CMPG) May 4, 2018
Had a little extra help with our vehicle checks this morning.
Whatever intergalactic travels you are undertaking today, please drive safely.
Good morning from Heathrow. The force is strong with us today and we've got some special new routes. Will you be travelling to galaxies near... or far, far away? #Maythe4th#MayTheFourth#MayThe4thBeWithYou#StarWarsDay 🌌🌟 pic.twitter.com/B9IcnMOMxC— Heathrow Airport (@HeathrowAirport) May 4, 2018
We know it's May the 4th, but if you're caught speeding today, uttering lines such as 'this isn't the driver you're looking for' while waving your hand around will not get you out of a fine. Slow down, you must. #MayTheFourth#StarWarsDaypic.twitter.com/gw1um7kRRm— NSW Police (@nswpolice) May 3, 2018
Happy #StarWarsDay! To quote Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Force is “...an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us & penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.” #MayThe4thBeWithYou— Warwick Davis (@WarwickADavis) May 4, 2018
Today, let’s acknowledge the Force, connect with each other & bring peace to OUR galaxy.
Look what we found in @theUL Tower while working on the #ulTallTales exhibition - it's only a mint, first edition, 1970s @starwars pop-up book featuring @HamillHimself and the wonderful Carrie Fisher.
