Extra strong the force is on Monday — because Monday is Star Wars Day, also known as “May The Fourth Be With you.“

The day celebrates a series of six movies that chronicle the political happenings that happened ”long ago, in a galaxy far, far away.“ The science fiction series will continue when Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens opens in theaters in December.

In honor of May The Fourth Be With You, here are four ways to celebrate the Star Wars universe besides watching the movies.

WATCH THE EPISODE VII TRAILERS OVER AND OVER AGAIN

We may have seven months to wait before the seventh Star Wars film is released, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy watching the trailers again — especially with the Millennium Falcon in the second trailer.

Fun fact: Mishawaka native and Mishawaka High School graduate Adam Driver is starring in the new movie. His character was revealed Monday.

BINGE WATCH THE CLONE WARS

The six-season TV series debuted in 2008 and has been well received by fans young and old. While Lucasfilm ended Star Wars: The Clone Wars in 2014, all 121 episodes are available on Netflix and Amazon Instant Video.

PLAY A STAR WARS VIDEO GAME

There have been quite a few Star Wars video games released on several platforms, including cell phones. Gamers who use PCs or Macs can download Star Wars video games from Steam at a discount on Monday, May 4. Several other Star Wars video game discounts are also available online.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE STAR WARS UNIVERSE ON WOOKIEEPEDIA

Wookieepedia is the Wikipedia of all things Star Wars — and the collection of information is as expansive as the universe. 

It’s a great way to get lost in Star Wars knowledge, especially if you enjoy reading. You can read articles about the various films, novels, comic books and video games. You can also learn more about lightsabers, get the history of the Jedi and read details about the Battle of Endor.
