Mark Hamill, Natalie Portman, and more celebrate Star Wars day on May the Fourth
It’s that time of year again. Even in our modern era of a new Star Wars movie every year, May 4 (as in, “May the Fourth be with you”) remains a rallying point for fans of the franchise. Plenty of famous faces posted tweets celebrating this year’s Star Wars Day, including Mark Hamill, Natalie Portman, and the crew of NASA’s International Space Station.
“This Star Wars Day, say something ‘bout the motherf—ing prequels, b—,” Portman wrote on Instagram, quoting her defense of the much-maligned Star Wars prequel from her recent Saturday Night Live episode.
Luckily for Portman, it seems like NASA also has some prequel defenders. The organization tweeted a photo from 2015 of an International Space Station screening of Revenge of the Sith (specifically, the scene where Jedi Master Mace Windu attempts to assassinate Chancellor Palpatine).
The Walking Dead actor Ross Marquand, coming off his super-secret surprise role in Avengers: Infinity War, also got in on the fun by posting a video talking with a version of everyone’s favorite droid, R2-D2.
Check out those tweets and others below. May the Fourth be with you.
