May the Fourth not destroy your wallet - great deals on Star Wars stuff

We’ve got a very good feeling about this. Welcome to May the Fourth, the annual fan celebration of all things Star Wars. With the recent release of The Force Awakens, this is shaping up to be an excellent day to rewatch the movies for the hundredth time, catch up on your comic-reading, or just don your Jedi costume with pride. 

This wordplay holiday (hey, that rhymes!) is also basically the Black Friday for all things Star Wars, so here are some of the top deals to help you save a few bucks as you honor the galaxy far, far away. No smuggling required.

-Disneyland Resort is hosting a celebration that includes special merchandise, a trivia night, and a showing of a fan-favorite episode of Star Wars Rebels. 

-For non-locals, the Disney Store (opens in new tab) always has sales on toys, figurines, apparel, and housewares.  (opens in new tab)

-Amazon Video (opens in new tab) has The Force Awakens for sale, and it’s giving away three free Star Wars comics with purchase.  (opens in new tab)

-Google Play is discounting a large selection of Star Wars mobile games; we recommend Star Wars Pinball. If you favor iOS, the App Store has pretty much the same selection on offer. 

-Select Star Wars games will be up to 77% off on the PlayStation and Xbox (opens in new tab) stores. The biggest cuts are on titles for the older consoles (snag Dark Forces if you haven’t already), but the new systems do get discounts on Star Wars Battlefront. 

-If you’re building a PC gaming library too, Steam and GOG.com (opens in new tab) are also running up to 77% off Star Wars game like the X-Wing series, Knights of the Old Republic, and Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. 

Voice. Changing. First Order helmet. Come ON.
