Although some fans will strongly disagree, May 4th has unofficially become the day that fans celebrate Star Wars. California has officially recognized May 4th as Star Wars Day just this week. With eleven movies, three animated series and a live-action television series on the way, it is safe to say the franchise is at the height of its popularity. Fans from across the globe come together on this day to celebrate the Star Wars Universe.
Ever since its debut in 1977, Star Wars has captured the imagination of millions of people young and old. It’s no wonder that now over thirty years later, George Lucas’ epic saga lives on. These days you cannot go anywhere without seeing the logo or characters attached to something. From toys to lunch boxes to toothbrushes.
We all celebrate Star Wars in our own way, but here at Word of the Nerd, we LOVE wallpapers. So here is a selection of great Star Wars wallpaper spread out across the various incarnations. May the Fourth Be With You. Our sincerest thanks to Wallpaper Abyss and Wallhaven for providing these Star Wars wallpapers.
This year will be marked, sadly by the passing of the beloved Peter Mayhew aka Chewbacca. He starred as the loveable Wookie co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon through five Star Wars films. Mayhew was a staple of the convention circuit and will be sorely missed by friends and fans.
