“May the Fourth” was chosen as Star Wars Day because it’s a pun on the film’s catchphrase, “May the force be with you.” One famous fan celebrating is Kelly Ripa, who posted a photo of herself sitting with Darth Vader and other characters, along with the caption, “May the FOURTH be with you.” Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb posted a GIF of themselves having a lightsaber battle on their talk show.
