A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Star Wars, the movie was created and became one of the most popular and enduring films of all time. The famous fantasy film was created by George Lucas in 1977. With fearless characters like Luke Skywalker and Hans Solo, the daring and delectable Princess Leia, and the venomous Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers, there is no doubt that Star Wars is part of film making history with a legion of dedicated, almost fanatical fans and followers around the world.

So popular is the film, that Star Wars has earned its own special day where fans can celebrate everything that is great about this groundbreaking movie. Here are some fun ways that you can get involved.

Activities
Ashgrove Library in Brisbane is hosting a free Star Wars Day makerspace from 2-3pm for children aged 5 years and older.

Brisbane Square Library invites children aged 10-15 years to come dressed as their favourite Star Wars character and share in free themed activities, games, and quizzes.

Star Wars Identities Exhibition displays at the Powerhouse Museum at 500 Harris St, Ultimo Sydney runs from November 16, 2018 until June 10, 2019 and features costumes, props, models and artworks from the Lucasfilm archives.

Get up close as you go behind the scenes of the movie-making process. There's BB-8, R2-D2, the Millennium Falcon, Yoda from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader's suit from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and more

If you can't make it to one of these events, invite a group of friends around, stay indoors and watch the movie together.

Whatever you decide to do this Star Wars Day, may the 4th be with you.
