May The Fourth Means An All-Day Star Wars Marathon

May 3, 2017

Tomorrow is May 4th, which sounds like a normal day but for Star Wars fans it is an important literal moment! 

“May The Fourth”Be With You is a play on the famous Star Wars phrase of May The Force be With You and to honor this day, cable network TBS plans a 16-hours marathon of all six of the franchise’s original films, in chronological order, starting at 6:40am with Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace all the way to Star Wars: Return of the Jedi starting at 8:15pm.  It appears the network is starting a new tradition as they say plans for future May 4ths will be honored with all Star Wars episodes, similar to the networks airing of A Christmas Story marathon on Christmas eve/day.
