It's that time of year again.
Yes, it's spring — but more specifically, it's almost May 4th, AKA Star Wars Day.
No matter how you feel about the Star Wars movies — the original trilogy, the…prequels, and the present-day sequels and so-called "anthology" films — there's no doubt they've had a massive impact on several generations' worth of pop culture.

Yesterday, the Star Wars 40th Anniversary Celebration took place in Orlando, Florida, an event which turned into a stunning tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the film…series. Fisher passed away in December 2016. George Lucas, the franchise's creator, said she could do "anything," stating: "She could hold her own against anything.
