It would appear that nothing, and I mean nothing, can slow the Star Wars franchise down.

In fact, in an earlier interview with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, per Slash Film, she said they are looking at Star Wars: Episode 9's narrative to see if its story could lead to creating future tales that surround Rey (Daisy Ridley), Poe (Oscar Isaac), Finn, and BB-8.

The saying is a play on words from the iconic "May the Force be with you" phrase often uttered in Star Wars movies.

Star Wars Day is, of course, a celebration of everything Star Wars-related with special screenings, costume parties, and deals related to the movie franchise. However, knowing that Star Wars movies are bound to secrecy, it looks like fans have to wait and see the movie on the big screen in December 2019. The night will also include Star Wars-themed dance competitions like the Jedi Draw.
