May 4 is a particularly important day for Star Wars fans. Over the years, this date has become an unmissable event for the universe created by George Lucas in 1977. But besides, why this day in particular? Well, it all starts with a simple pun with one of the saga’s most famous expressions, “May the power be with you In English this formula is “May the Force be with you”, a statement quite similar to the date of the fourth of may, “the fourth of may”. Over time, fans have therefore made this date a holiday for the franchise.

More with the acquisition of the Star Wars license by Disney in 2012 for 4 billion, this day became a public holiday in 2013† Since then, the group has taken advantage of this moment to distribute and market products around this universe.

If May 4 offers some Star Wars related content, Disney doesn’t always take the opportunity to tell us more about projects already announced or others disclose to us. On the contrary, the Mickey firm prefers to reserve its large presentations for other occasions. We are thinking in particular of the D23 Expo, a congress that is organized once every two years by the official Disney fan club, or even during Disney Investor Day like last year. On this occasion, many Disney+ series projects as well as theatrical films were announced, as you can see in the photo opposite where we see Kathleen Kennedy, the current president of Lucasfilms, surrounded by the logos of everything that had just been unveiled.

Given the popularity of the series, it is clear that the third season of The Mandalorian shouldn’t take long to put the tip of his nose back together as some sources suggest a broadcast in the fall or winter of 2022.
