It’s a very special day for Star Wars fans, as the annual celebration known as Star Wars Day is taking place online and offline, with karaoke, costume parties, special merchandise deals and more.

Although Lucasfilm was not the originator, it has embraced the concept, and the annual May 4th celebration is typically accompanied by the catchphrase, “May The Fourth Be With You.” This year’s celebration is tempered a bit by the death of Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca, and many fans also take time to remember Carrie Fisher on this day.

But there’s also a lot of wacky fun, including some shots from the Lucasfilm cafeteria online. Here’s a sample of celebrity reaction so far, including from the star of another space franchise.
