California declares May 4 as 'Star Wars Day'

This move comes as "Rise of Skywalker" could be the biggest film of the year.

This year is shaping up to be a huge one for fans of a "galaxy far, far away."

California lawmakers voted Thursday to declare May 4 "Star Wars Day" ahead of Disneyland's Galaxy's Edge opening later this month, The Associated Press reported.

Galaxy's Edge opens May 31 with a slew of attractions, merchandise and more for fans, young and old alike. Most of all it creates jobs and revenue for the local government, to the tune of possibly $14 million in tax revenue for Anaheim each year, according to the AP.

As most fans know, May 4 was previously the unofficial "Star Wars" day because of the turn of phrase, "May the force be with you," used by Jedi masters in the movies. No Sith allowed.

In addition to Galaxy's Edge's debut, "Star Wars" fans will be treated to the final film in the Skywalker saga later this year with the highly-anticipated "Episode IX."

Last month, fans were gifted the first teaser trailer for "The Rise of Skywalker," set to hit theaters in December.

"We're so excited, because I think what you're going to end up seeing something you're going to be so happy with," Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said about the upcoming film at "Star Wars Celebration," a fan convention for the films, games, books and more.

ABC News and Lucasfilm are both part of parent company Disney.
