We are on the 4th of May. May 4 is the Star Wars Day . Basically, it was a trick between us, the fans. A word game on May the fourth ( May the Force , which the Force), which amused a lot. But for some time, this day has been taken by assault by brands wishing to surf the saga created by George Lucas.
This year, May 4 is a bit special. Indeed, we are in a year when a new Star Wars is going to go out in theaters (as every year now, but we still have to get used to it), but most importantly, the saga is celebrating its forty years! Four decades of Star Wars that we will celebrate with dignity May 25, the date of the release of the very first film in the United States. But before that, there is this 4th of May. If you want to have fun (or to please a loved one) on this particular day, we have selected a list of ten items easily found in the trade. Objects both for big fans and lighter.
Are you ready ?
The Star Wars blu-ray set
The basis of the license, all are the same films. Impossible therefore not to put them here. In 2015, a new box containing the six films of the era Lucas. Note that they are in their final version, the one that was born with the first blu-ray release of 2011.
A beautiful box for those wishing to garnish their library with the threatening silhouette of Darth Vader. For the time being, Disney has not released a box containing all the films released to date, but no doubt that will be done with the release of Episode IX planned for 2019.

Star Wars, the Star Wars saga from France
Star Wars has marked pop-culture. It is a fact. When we talk about this impact, we think first of all of the United States. In France, the contemporaries of the release of the first films have experienced the thing a little differently. This is where the Star Wars saga of France comes into play. The book thus returns to the way the film was marketed in France, a country at that time not very inclined to a SF saga of this type, as well as the phenomenon Which began to take in our country. Moreover, the book shows us the forgotten objects, which have only come out in our country, and which have marked the childhood of many fans. An extraordinary book in many ways that represents the fruit of years of research and collection. A remarkable work.

A great classic. Released upstream of Episode VII , this Sphero was reissued at the end of last year with more capabilities, but also a remote control to control it with the wrist.

The Black Crusade of the Mad Jedi
Here is a story that has marked a generation of Star Wars fans. Originally scheduled as a follow-up to the saga, Thimothy Zahn’s The Black Crusade of the Jedi Fou is now listed in the Legendes universe, which was not followed by Disney. But the series of novels remains exceptional and pleasant to read.
The character of Thrawn is also so adored by the fans that Disney decided to reuse it in his new universe. In addition to appearing in the Rebels series , the Grand Admiral of the Empire will soon have the right to a new canonical novel, still signed Thimothy Zahn.
