This is to celebrate Star Wars Day on “May the 4th which has been given the hashtag #starwarsday, the global fan-driven celebration of all things Star Wars.
My son and my husband are both massive Star Wars fans and love the fact that this bank holiday Monday is now known to fans as “May the 4th”. My son has been walking around the house saying “May the 4th be with you Mum”
A very special guest will be appearing at Disney Store on Oxford Street, London on Monday, May 4th. Star Wars fans will have the chance to meet actor Jeremy Bulloch, who plays Boba Fett in the Star Wars films. A truly exciting way for all Star Wars fans to spend May the 4th.
Guests at Disney Store, Oxford Street, London, can also take their picture with the amazing likeness of Jedi Master Yoda, before the figure appears at the new Star Wars experience at Madame Tussauds London, which opens on Saturday, May 16th.
If you cannot make it to London, as we unfortunately cannot.You can always visit Disney Stores across the UK from May 2nd-4th, where guests of all ages can take part in the free ‘Ways of the Force’ (#waysoftheforce) activity and learn some of the skills of the Jedi, including how to use a light saber. A Stormtrooper mask and medal will be given to each guest upon completion of the Jedi training. A must do activity for your mini Star Wars fans!
