While we’ve pretty much already covered the casting announcement in real time, I’m beginning to regret not doing so with May the 4th… Of course, then this roundup would be super thin. Choices.
My disdain for a movie having an arbitrary holiday is combatted by my appreciation that it only exists to make the world's worst pun.

Before this was a normal day but now it's one of the most special days in the year!

If you need a special day to make "Star Wars" jokes, then you truly haven't accepted "Star Wars" in your heart.

More May the 4th, because it never ends
Today is Star Wars Day, which means we should all reflect on a simpler time in our lives, when Harrison Ford didn't have an earring.

Man, you guys, I'm so glad there's finally a day for us to talk about Star Wars. I've been keeping so much bottled up.

If you aren't celebrating today by blowing up planets and kidnapping Princesses, you're doing it wrong. #StarWarsDay

When I was a kid, I really wanted to be Han Solo, because he was so cool … but I was Luke Skywalker, because I was awkward.

18 years ago I helped popularize "May the 4th be with you" on @theforcenet I'm now thinking I didn't think that one all the way through.

Episode VII and such
UK table read- I was knocked out by the diverse & extraordinarily talented new cast members. WOW they're good! The saga is in superb hands.

So many privileges to acting in the Saga. Best yet, sitting at the read-through with the old & the new cast. And the story! You can't wait!

In Attack the Block, John Boyega kills a rancor in the first five minutes. It took Luke three movies. #jedishit

So…do we think they staged that #StarWarsVII cast photo knowing the fanbase would nitpick the shit out of it & did they do it to trick us?

If you believe "Order of the Jedi" is the title to Episode VII, I have some prime, spacefront Alderaanian real estate to sell you.

Holy shit. I'm writing from Vader's POV. Holy. Shit. Frickin' fun, too. That is all.

"Luke Skywalker deals with his PTSD by having an affair with a ghost" is the best way I've ever seen that plotline referenced.

The mystery Clone Wars character in Kemp's Lords of the Sith novel is Hondo and you can't convince me otherwise.

Was in the middle of Timothy Zahn's "Allegiance" when they retconned the EU. Read more last night; it's still kickass. #starwars

Give me Bendis writing the Star Wars w/ Anka on art, Fraction writing Indiana Jones w/ Samnee on art, and Jordie coloring everything.

People keep coming up to me wishing me Happy Star Wars Day and waiting for me to 'get it'. I now see why Anakin turned to the Dark Side.
