From here in the U.S. to galaxies far far away, May the 4 is now known universally as “Star Wars Day,” thanks to a pun on that famous Star Wars quote, “May the force be with you.”

According to, the first notable occurrence with the May 4 pun took place on that date in 1979, when Margaret Thatcher took office as the new British Prime Minister. Thatcher’s Conservative party took out an ad in The London Evening News to congratulate her, saying “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.”

Since then, “Star Wars Day” has been celebrated around the world, with fans gathering to re-watch the movies (you can stream them all here), participate in cosplay, and to show off their Star Wars toys and collectibles at makeshift conventions. Brands are also getting in on the action, offering limited-edition collaborations on everything from rings to rugs for your home. In fact, the Disney Store has an entire section for their new May the 4th 2024 merch. This is not even mentioning news of upcoming video game releases like Star Wars: Outlaws, along with the premiere of trailers for new series like The Acolyte.

Whether you’re part of the Rebel Legion, a serious collector, or just a casual fan, here are ten pieces of Star Wars merch to pick up for May the 4, 2024. Shop quickly: the demand — and force — is strong with many of the items on our list, and you’ll want to sang them before they’re sold-out.
