Partially the reason why #maythe4thbewithyou and #starwarsday is trending -- besides the fact that the property has the world's most awesome fans (take that Trekkies!) -- is because Lucasfilm announced today that they will be releasing the whole series on Blu-ray. It Out on September 12 internationally and September 16 in North America, the collection will feature the complete saga in addition to deleted scenes, commentary and never-before seen documentaries including "Star Wars Spoofs" and "A Conversation with the Masters: The Empire Strikes Back 30 Years Later" -- all in blu-ray precision.

- Speaking of Star Wars phrases, one of the most memorable (okay, well at least call it quotable) lines from the trilogy was Admiral Ackbar's desperate "It's a trap!" line.
The Ole Miss Rebels were in desperate need of a mascot so some students and "Star Wars" fans campaigned than none other than the Mon Calamari who became the military commander of the Alliance. Needless to say, some cheerleaders did not get the joke -- nor were they pleased.
- What would a "Star Wars" memes list be without a video of none other than Star Wars kid? Don't make fun of him, you all know you've tried this out in your own bedrooms.And now with added Episode 1 action: Although he was traumatized from the experience, forcing his parents to file a $250,000 lawsuit against the original posters, Ghyslain Raza is now a law student at Montreal's McGill University. He took control of the Patrimoine Trois-Rivières (formerly called the Society for Conservation and Promotion of Cultural Heritage), to help save his hometown. No word if he's still a "Star Wars" fan.
