Star Wars Day is an informal commemorative day observed annually on May 4 to celebrate the Star Wars media franchise created by filmmaker George Lucas. It has since been embraced by Lucasfilm and the Walt Disney Company as an annual celebration of Star Wars. From the release date of the original Star Wars movie, May 25, 1977 it has gone from strength to strength.

“Always more questions than answers, there are”


Please note that a separate "Extinct Express" event, operated in conjunction with Fox & Edwards Events, will also be in operation.
