May 4: Star Wars Day
April 29, 2021
The Star Wars Universe was created in 1973 by George Lucas, who wanted to put a spin on the sci-fi movie genre by adding action, adventure, and romance. The late Carrie Fisher was only nineteen when she began her role as Princess Leia. In the movies, Leia is a senator, military general, and part of the Rebel Alliance. Fisher herself was fearless as well and would do many of her own stunts. Han Solo, played by Harrison Ford, is a talented pilot. Did you know that Harrison Ford is also a pilot in real life? He works with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association to advocate for general aviation.
On this Star Wars day, May the Fourth be with you!
