Lucasfilm Announces Star Wars 'Roar for Change' Campaign

We spent the entire month of December talking about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and with Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out May 25th, we made a decision to do it all over again. There's always a chance for fluctuation.

It would appear that nothing, and I mean nothing, can slow the Star Wars franchise down. Every devoted fanbase is going to have their passionate criticism and as we saw with the bold moves that Star Wars: The Last Jedi took in its plot twists, that didn't hinder ticket sales fro that film from reaching $620M stateside, $1.3 billion worldwide. Not to honor the day or celebrate the Force.

Reason 2: It wasn't even celebrated until 2011 thanks to social media.

Speaking to, of all places, Yahoo Finance UK, the once and future Star Wars star let slip that he is having to make a change to his usual look prior to filming for the sequel. So if you are the type of Star Wars fan who likes to be a completist, check out these options on Netflix this May the 4th.




Star Wars Day will be held very soon and offers the ideal opportunity to celebrate the beloved sci-fi franchise that's been around since 1977. Two years later, an English daily, ran a headline after which was part of an advertisement by the Conservative Party in Great Britain who were celebrating the election of Margaret Thatcher, taking up office as the UK Prime Minister. Then in 2008 a Facebook group started using it for Luke Skywalker Day which brought the saying to the attention of many. According to Google, "The Google Doodle, Google Spotlight Stories, Google Arts & Culture, & Cinémathèque Française teams have collaborated to create the first-ever Virtual Reality (VR) / 360° interactive Doodle to celebrate the life and artistry of French illusionist and film director Georges Méliès".

Fans gathered to watch the movies, and afterwards there were costume contests. The franchise was launched in 1977 with Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.

Star Wars: Force for Change, a charitable initiative from Lucasfilm and Disney, harnesses the strength of Star Wars to empower and improve the lives of children around the world.
