May the 4th: A look at 'Star Wars' culture through the years(46 images)

May 4th is the unofficial holiday established by "Star Wars" fans to celebrate the culture established by the landmark films -- based on the popular quote, "May the force be with you." Since the first movie in 1977, the "Star Wars" stories have evolved into sequels, prequels and series. The next, "Obi-Wan Kenobi," will premiere May 27, 2022.
