The day prior to Cinco de Mayo isn’t just an ordinary day. It’s Star Wars Day. Around the world, fans of the franchise and Jedi hopefuls greet each other with, “May the Fourth be with you” in honor of this coincidental spin-off of May 4. Many look forward to celebrating the holiday at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge within the Disney theme parks, raising glasses of blue and green milk while munching on vegan-friendly Outpost popcorn from Kat Saka’s Kettle.

The origin of Star Wars Day

“May the Fourth be with you” is the official greeting fans worldwide use to celebrate Star Wars Day. This turn of phrase is inspired by the famous words spoken throughout the film franchise: “May the force be with you.”

According to Lucasfilm, “May the Fourth be with you” was first used in 1978 as a greeting amongst American Star Wars fans celebrating Independence Day on July 4.

The phrase gained further momentum the following year, when Margaret Thatcher officially became the first woman elected to serve as the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister. After successfully winning election on none other than, you guessed it, May 4, her political party commissioned an ad in The London Evening News. It read, “May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations!” While there is no direct correlation between the film and the political ad, the ad helped the phrase gain momentum.

Decades later, it gained further popularity among fans of the film and May 4 unofficially became Star Wars Day. In 2019, California lawmakers voted to make it an official holiday. The initiative was motivated by the opening of Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge later that year.

Blue Milk from the Milk Stand and Ooga’s Cantina

What does blue milk taste like? This semi-frozen slushy-like concoction has a strong tropical flavor. It’s made with a mix of coconut and rice milk and flavored with watermelon, dragonfruit, lime, and pineapple. The drink is non-alcoholic and perfect for young padawans, but the twenty-one-and-up crowd has the option to spike their beverage with Bacardi Rum at Ooga’s Cantina. If you’re celebrating at home and are tempted to buy TruMoo’s Blue Milk, be warned, this beverage is made with cow’s milk and as such is not suitable for vegans.

Similar to blue milk, this vibrant neon yellow-green beverage is also made with coconut and rice milk and has a frozen to slushy consistency. The sweet drink combines flavors of passion fruit, grapefruit, mandarin orange, and orange blossom to impart a tropical, somewhat floral experience. The spiked version is mixed with Corazon Blanco Tequila.

Outpost Popcorn from Kat Saka’s Kettle

Like all Disney popcorn, this vibrant sweet-meets-spicy snack is popped in coconut oil instead of butter. It’s on the more inventive range of flavor combinations—red-hued chili lime kernels are combined with purple blueberry pound cake flavored kernels for a treat that’s been described as Red Hots candy meets Fruit Loops cereal. Let’s just call it an acquired taste—loved by some planets and less so by others. Look to the pros at Diznify to help you recreate this one-of-a-kind treat.
