This Star Wars Day, even if you’re staying at home, you can still have fun exploring the galaxy at large. With the premiere of Star Wars: The Bad Batch on Disney+ and an abundance of activities and recipes to help you plan your own celebration, StarWars.com has you covered with ideas and inspiration.
1. Organize a watch party with friends near and far, far away thanks to Disney+.
Thanks to GroupWatch, even if you can’t be together this Star Wars Day, you can watch together with friends and family. We’ll be streaming the premiere of Star Wars: The Bad Batch when it drops that day for sure, but between the recently added Star Wars Vintage Collection, other Star Wars animated series, and the full line-up of Star Wars films to choose from, you can keep your watch party going all day long.
2. Make the perfect themed snacks for the occasion.
We’ve never passed on the popcorn and traditional movie snacks, but May the 4th calls for an extra-special menu. For a full day, serve up Yoda pancakes for breakfast, a Princess Leia rice bowl for lunch, and Bantha Blue Butter sandwich cookies for dessert. Or choose your favorite healthy snack, like fruit TIE fighters, for a simple treat that your Padawans can help you prepare.
3. Get creative with a Star Wars craft.
Speaking of youngsters, Star Wars Kids is a great resource for introducing the newest fans to the characters, creatures, and themes from the Star Wars saga, but it also has step-by-step tutorials for kid-friendly crafts and drawings. To get into the spirit, StarWars.com also has simple crafts for kids of all ages, like a bracer set straight out of Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, a clever DIY with Endor-inspired wooden coasters, and a simple papercraft to ensure Lando Calrissian’s faithful friend Lobot will hold your place.
4. Expand your understanding of the galaxy with a Star Wars book or comic.
With Star Wars: The High Republic, a new series of books and comics has opened up an all-new era of Star Wars storytelling not explored in the Skywalker saga films — a time when the Jedi Order was at its height. But there’s a wealth of knowledge in behind-the-scenes tomes like The Star Wars Archives, explorations of brand-new characters like Sana Starros and Doctor Aphra, and other books that enrich our understanding of our favorite characters from every era of the saga.
5. Make your own Star Wars story.
Star Wars has inspired generations of fans. Whether you break out your action figures , spend some time on your screen-accurate cosplay, or simply spend some time reflecting on what Star Wars means to you, Star Wars Day is about celebrating the people who love the saga: You.
May the 4th (and the Force) be with you!
