Today we remember our war dead, so there is no place for Star Wars in that in my view.

I think you might be taking this just a teensy bit too seriously. Much like there's a teensy bit of elbow room in the universe.

I voted "a little" because I like the newer trilogy of movies and The Mandalorian, and some of the games. It's a cool fictional universe, I'm just not all fanatical about it like some people.

Star Wars was a great story when the movies came out but its been decades since then.

I am glad that this trilogy has lasted and come to the future generations but how long can a series with dated special effects appeal to younger generations with zero new content.

nothing Star Wars has come out since the return of the Jedi (not counting repackaging).

its a great story and very well written trilogy following the formula of the heroes journey almost to a T.

there arent many other trilogies out there that can compete with it or be as popular but it will only last so long if they dont make something viable and interesting besides video game spin offs. (Which are generally very good).

Ehh, it is worth noting that a lot of people today try way too hard to force memes. Stuff like "Star Wars Day", "Pi Day", and "Talk Like a Pirate Day" all sort of fall into that camp, where it's perfectly understandable for people to be like "This shit's stupid and I respect you less for throwing yourself into it full-bore."

It's understandable only in that people that get upset when other people have fun are nothing new, not because it's a sensible thing to do. Really, there's no reason to get upset about it. If it doesn't appeal to you, just keep scrolling and let people enjoy themselves.

Nah. It's more that stupid people get overenthusiastic about stupid things to the point where they start to become annoying is nothing new, and feel the need to trumpet their enthusiasm far and wide and get salty when other people refuse to play along. And then some people are going to start to get irritated at the constant blitz of people talking about it, until they start to feel the need to vent their own annoyance.

Honestly, it's how I tend to view April Fools Day these days. It never used to be all that major a thing, then the Internet latched onto it hardcore. A few sites did some clever stuff for a couple years, and then the whole thing just turned into a lame mess to the point where it's almost worthwhile to avoid all social media or "hip" websites for 24 hours so you don't have to deal with it.

It's a function of how the Internet tends to polarize everything into its most extreme form. Enthusiasm becomes fanaticism, which in turn tends to spur apathy into antipathy. Excessive love spawns excessive hate.

George Lucas is one of the luckiest people on Earth. He had a single vague idea cobbled together from some pretty clear influences that got turned into a nearly unparalleled success by the geniuses around him and then he sleepwalked through a bunch of garbage sequels and sold it all off for billions of dollars.

Star Wars is one revolutionary movie, a few very good movies, and a heap of absolute trash and embarrassing merchandise and Disney will probably still choke the life out of it even after trying to restrain themselves.

If this is solely about Star Wars Day...it's as stupid but also as inoffensive as Pi Day and the like.

That annoyance would be understandable, if that actually happened. Nobody makes that big of a deal out of Pi Day, except maybe saying "heh, it's Pi Day" and going about their business, possibly with more pie than usual (which is generally going to be a good thing, unless you're some weirdo that hates pie). Same with Star Wars day, aside from the obligatory SW sales in various digital storefronts (which are either beneficial or easy to ignore, depending on how interested in buying the products one is). Characterizing simple recognition as "overenthusiasm" definitely falls into "stop liking what I don't like" territory.

Many possible days that are not 4 May.

I am a huge Star Wars fan (side-glance at many books), but today is just not the day to celebrate that.

Well, I'd say you're still celebrating being a Star Wars fan (or at least celebrating the franchise itself) by choosing to watch that on May 4th. :p

I like the original movies. I like the character, Luke Skywalker and his journey. Other than that, some EU stuff and video games, I'm not in love with it. It's been way over exposed and there's not much substance in these recent offerings.

I would call it FOMO. While I can manage to avoid spoilers around the big movies, youtube creators seem to not have the same regard for series.

I would say yes. It does hinge strongly on it being a Clone Wars sequel/spin-off.

That's fair. Spoilers can always pop up in the most unexpected places when you're on the internet.
