Star Wars Day

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…Star Wars debuted its first movie, launching this franchise into worlds unknown and creating new fans everywhere. Knowing that May the Force sounds quite like May the 4th, fans have adopted this day (and Revenge of the 5th) to be days of celebration for our favorite space-traveling heroes and villains alike.

Celebrate with New York Comic Con, as well as our sister shows from ReedPop across the U.S.A. to live-tweet movie reactions, watch live interviews, play games virtually, get to know your local community groups and more over these glorious two days.


To Follow along with our Live Tweeting: Each hosting twitter account will be posting when they will be starting the movie watch (we will not be streaming the movies).
