Video: May the fourth be with you!

In celebration of Star Wars day, watch a time-lapse Yoda take shape
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Well, actually five years ago, four hours south.
That's when May 4, the unofficial day that celebrates everything Star Wars, was first created, at the Toronto Underground Cinema no less.
A pun based from the traditional Jedi greeting, “May the Force be with you,” the date's popularity grew tremendously within its five year inception.
Last year, astronauts at the International Space Station watched the original Star Wars film, while a couple Minor League Baseball teams also wore special uniforms as part of its promotion.
The Walt Disney Company began to observe the holiday in 2013, and has held several Star Wars events and festivities at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
Last November, shortly before the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we asked Sudbury artist Trevor TenHave to sculpt us a Yoda head. 
So in keeping with tradition of providing something Star Wars related, have a look, and of course, may the fourth be with you!
