Star Wars fans are honouring each other on their annual celebration with this pun: "May the Fourth be with you”.

But this year's Star Wars' day is a little more poignant as fans pay tribute to the late actress Carrie Fisher, who played the iconic Princess Leia.

It was the first May the Fourth since Carrie passed away in December.

And as the celebrations kicked off in Australia this morning.

 

The rest of the world was quick to get in on the action, honouring one of their favourite stars.
