In celebration of the global Star Wars fan holiday, which is on May the 4th, fans can dust off their Jedi robes (the dudes) or roll their hair into cinnamon buns (the ladies) or just go dressed as their usual selves to enjoy the celebrations across 52 locations in Australia and NZ.
A mammoth movie marathon will be happening across the two countries where all six films from the epic space saga will return to cinemas in Digital 2D.
Tickets go on sale today, and – getting back to that dressup talk – there will be prizes for the best dressed, including the chance to win a wicked trip for two to the Star Wars Celebration in California next year.
Check out www.facebook.com/StarWars.AUNZ for more details on how to win and purchase tickets and keep checking your local cinema guides for where the action is at.
On Saturday, May 3rd:
Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace
Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones
Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith
On Sunday, May 4th:
Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope
Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi
Single-day tickets will be available for either Episodes I-III and/or Episodes IV-VI.
The reason the particular date of May the 4th has been selected to celebrate Star Wars Day is simply because of the excellent pun it plays with: “May the 4th be with you” – geddit?
