In these stay-at-home pandemic times, big gatherings are a no-no, and events such as film festivals and Comic-Con are being cancelled right, left and centre. So what to do when May the 4th, the most famous date in celebrating Star Wars rolls around? Answer: a virtual convention.

An Online Revelry: May The 4th Be With You and Revenge Of The 5th is being run by New York Comic-Con and Star Wars Celebration organisers ReedPop and will hold several events, including live-tweeting movies and episodes of Star Wars movies and TV shows, plus trivia quizzes and giveaways across various social media accounts.

You can find more details in the NYCC tweet below.

The next Star Wars Celebration had been set for August 27-30 this year, but coronavirus conditions will dictate whether it happens at all.
