Fans have long embraced May the 4th as a day to celebrate all-things-Star-Wars, and so in the spirit of this fan-created holiday, we've gathered a list of brand new content, games, special events, and can't-miss deals for fans to enjoy throughout the day (and beyond!). Star Wars fans have always found cool and creative ways to express their love for their favorite movie saga, and we hope these special events and activities give a little something back to the community that has been so faithful to that galaxy far, far away.
