Yep, that’s right, it’s Star Wars Day and in honour of all things Jedi, we’ve come up with a list of some of the best ways you can celebrate the best sci-fi film in the galaxy.

Movie marathon!

Return of the Jedi? Revenge of the Sith? The Rise of Skywalker? There are so many films to choose from it’s hard to so instead, why don’t you watch the entire series from beginning to end? It’ll take a while though, so might be worth telling mum and dad before you start… you know, so they’ll be able to provide the snacks and stuff.

Attack of the snacks

And talking of snacks, while you’re preparing for your galactic film-fest, what better way to keep yourself going than with a plate full of Star Wars-shaped snacks? From a Yoda watermelon to Wookie Cookies (which can find the recipe for in this week’s Beano!), there’s enough tasty treats to keep even Jabba the Hut from going hungry.

Talk like Yoda for the day, you could

Let’s be honest, speaking in the style of a Jedi Master is miles better than speaking like a boring old human being, so why don’t you make things fun for May the Forth by talking like Yoda himself? And if you’re at school, don’t let that stop you! Teachers get confused, they might, but you can always use your Jedi mind skills to get out of class early.

Give yourself a Star Wars name

Kylo Ren, Luke Skywalker, C-3PO. Star Wars is full of characters with great names. So why not get in on the act yourself and give yourself a special Star Wars name for the day? You could be Jeanida Silth. Or Yagorn Deccol maybe? And the best thing is your teacher won’t be able to call your name out when they do the morning register - unless your teacher's a Jedi.

Take your Wookie to work (or school)

Okay, well we know it can be hard to find a Wookie, particularly at short notice, but that’s find – just find a really hairy dog instead and take them with you to school! Well, that’s if your school don’t mind you bringing a dog along. If they do, then maybe you might have to find a Wookie after all!
