Tuesday May the 4th is Star Wars Day. 'May the fourth be with you' as fans from all over the world are saying to each other. No, it isn't a typing error; I didn't mean to say 'force'.

Fans dressed up as Storm troopers joined parades in various parts of the world. Posters and tributes to Luke Skywalker, Yoda, and numerous other Star Wars characters appeared on Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites. C-3Po and Darth Vader were very evident on Twitter.

All of this, although not an unofficial date in the Star Wars calendar, was a perfect excuse for light sabre fights and getting into costume.

The original Star Wars movie took $460.9 million in the US alone on its original run. The Telegraph London, reports that George Lucas who is the director behind the Star Wars franchise, has plans to spend $10 million on a project to turn the original movie into a 3D experience.

May the force be with you!
