It's a big day in the Star Wars universe, the one in which everyone is seeing and hearing "May the fourth be with you" greetings all day. Mashable notes that the franchise itself is marking the occasion with a video suited for 2020 and life in a pandemic. The theme is standing together with hope, and it's a montage of clips from different movies and TV shows within the Star Wars world. Of course, every business under the sun also is looking to capitalize on the day, and Newsweek rounds up some of the deals out there, from Lego to Walmart and Target. (More Star Wars stories.)
