May 4th has become universally recognized as Star Wars Day, not just because it has a nice ring to it. The month of May has always held particular importance to Star Wars fans as it is the release month of all six films within the saga. So today gives us the opportunity to profess our fandom loud and proud. And among those celebrating are some of our favorite celebrities from the Star Wars films and beyond. Take a look at the 15 best celebrity Tweets and Instagram photos from Star Wars Day, plus one little bonus Tweet.
