The lead up to the 40th anniversary of Star Wars has been going on since the beginning of the year, but today is the day. On May 25th 1977, Star Wars made its debut in theaters—and in 2017 the franchise is going stronger than ever.
The Star Wars films are pretty much the cornerstone of everything we do here, and I think it’s safe to assume that the films have played a major role in many of your lives as well. If you’re planning on celebrating, you should check out the latest episode of Lucasfilm’s web series The Star Wars Show below. It’s packed with 40th anniversary news, not to mention an interview with Timothy Zahn, a birthday song from the cast of Hamilton, and…a vegetable carving?
