Grab your lightsabers, because Friday, May 04, is Star Wars Day - a day to celebrate all things related to the space saga.

The first organized tribute to "Star Wars" took place last year in Canada at the Toronto Underground Cinema.

Festivities included "Star Wars" trivia and a costume contest.

"Star Wars" was released in 1977.
