May the 4th is fast approaching and while the spread of COVID-19 is forcing everyone to stay at home, Lucasfilm’s found the best way to celebrate Star Wars day.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, fans can now celebrate May the 4th together thanks to Reedpop, the organization behind the yearly Star Wars Celebration. Reedpop is hosting An Online Revelry: May the 4th Be With You and Revenge of the Fifth, an online convention created for this year’s Star Wars day.

This two-day online gathering features multiple virtual events. There’s going to be question and answer sessions with Star Wars writers and actors. There’s also going to be live-tweeting for Star Wars movies like The Rise of Skywalker and for episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. The event is also going to offer trivia quizzes and prize giveaways for fans.

An Online Revelry: May the 4th Be With You and Revenge of the Fifth is going to take place online through the social media accounts of ReedPop’s various properties including C2E2, New York Comic Con, BookCon, Emerald City Comic Con and Florida Supercon. This includes the convention’s accounts on Twitter and Facebook.

Seeing how The Clone Wars is currently streaming its seventh and final season, ReedPop has been tailor fitting its events for the critically-acclaimed Star Wars series. While the online convention doesn’t seem to include the cast of Lucasfilm’s Star Wars movies, fans can still enjoy the live-tweeted viewings of the original trilogy, Revenge of the Sith, The Rise of Skywalker, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

An Online Revelry: May the 4th Be With You and Revenge of the Fifth will take place online on May 4 and 5, 2020.
