Revenge of the Fifth

Revenge of the Fifth is a celebration for Star Wars fans. It is believed they join the dark side on this day.

The History

May 4th is known as Star Wars Day. It was chosen because of the catchphrase “May the force be with you”. But why Revenge of the Fifth? It is a wordplay on Revenge of the Sith, the third episode, released in 2005.

Some people consider May 5 not the best date. This day, people of Mexico, America and other countries celebrate Cinco de Mayo – the victory over the French army in 1862, and Revenge of the Sixth would be better.
