HOUSTON, TX - Is the force strong in you?  It's May the 4th be with you… the most galactic day on the calendar.  Star Wars fans all over the world have an excuse to try some Jedi mind tricks and see what happens. Well, nothing happens because it's just a movie.  But it doesn't matter: just keep dreaming, and beware of the dark side.

"To the general fan this is a huge day," said David Wahlen, manager at Bedrock City Comic Company, "because it's the one day that we all know that we're talking about Star Wars and celebrating its history  ."

These are exciting times, the new Star Wars episode is in the making and the very well marketed sneak peaks are driving everyone crazy.   Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker are making a comeback to see if the old guard can give new life to the franchise.

"I personally believe this is gonna be the biggest movie, by far, this year," added Wahlen.

So, May the 4th be with you, and live long and prosper.  The galaxy is big enough for everyone.
