May 4th Star Wars Day
George Lucas created Star Wars in 1977, “A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away.” Even George Lucas didn’t expect the success Star Wars would be when he created it. And I am sure he certainly did not think that he would share this day with Margret Thatcher when she was elected Prime Minister of England on May 4th, 1979.
Why? The newspaper headlines read after Thatcher’s election, “May the Fourth be With You”.
How to celebrate – Watch a Star Wars movie. Study the struggles Lucas had in trying to get Star Wars made. Read about Margret Thatcher’s election.
