May 4 is deemed as Star Wars Day due to the pun, “May the fourth be with you.” There are worldwide virtual celebrations of one of the most influential movie franchises of all time.

Much of the success of “Star Wars” is due to master composer John Williams, who has written over eighteen hours of music for these nine movies, not to mention the ever-expanding library of prequels, sequels and spinoffs.
