It's 'punbelievable' that once again it is that day of the year. A day of bad Han Solo jokes, dogs dressing as Yoda and a reminder that Jar Jar Binks actually existed. That's right:

Upon us again Star Wars Day is

The rumours are big, more casting, a new Episode VIII title? Just what is around the corner for May 4 this year? So where does the origin of Star Wars Day come from?

To celebrate their victory her party took a half page of advertising space in the London Evening News. This message, referring to the day of victory, was ‘May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations,’ further proof of the extent to which 'Star Wars' has influenced us all.

Here's Daisy Ridley to thank you for Star Wars Day and what else does the internet have to offer for us on the holiest of days for nerds?

Some Rogue One hype - could we get a new trailer?

There are puns-a-plenty

There is music too

R2-D2 celebrated Star Wars Day in style

Need a lift to your Star Wars party?

Or a surprise guest?

Of course you need a cute dog in there somewhere

Is The Big Bang Theory the ultimate Star Wars fan-show?

But not everyone is a fan of Star Wars you Nandos!

And don't even get us started on the Trek fans

Finally, if all that zooming around the galaxy wasn't enough for you, we are off to Russia. A rather familiar sound when this man is hit by a taser.
