May The Fourth is known as 'Star Wars' day, and fans, actors and filmmakers rejoiced and remembered iconic moments from the franchise on social media. There was a flood of behind-the-scenes clips, a smattering of announcements, and a whole lot of trivia.

Viewers brought out their hot takes on their favorite films, what they liked, what they didn't, and what they expect next. Even Babu Frik from 'The Rise Of Skywalker' was a topic of discussion, as fans began to compare him to Baby Yoda from 'The Mandalorian'. 

And as May 4 draws to a close and May 5 -- or Revenge Of The Fifth (pun on Sith) -- approaches, 'Star Wars' fans are at it again, filling social media with new memes and hilarious tweets. This is the day of Anakin Skywalker AKA Darth Vader, and so it's not going to be pleasant.

"I have achieved a power that may be unnatural. Put on Revenge of the Sith for May the 4th. At midnight Anakin will become Darth Vader...Revenge of the Fifth," wrote a fan.

"Happy Revenge of the Fifth to Hayden Christensen AKA Anakin Skywalker. Thank u for bringing one of the best SW characters to life and for being apart of one of the greatest movies in the entire franchise," wrote another.

"With the passing of May the Fourth, it's now time for Revenge of the Fifth. **JEDI DON'T INTERACT**," a fan wrote. 

Some fans like to believe that they're all about Revenge Of The Fifth, rather than May The Fourth. "I can’t believe I missed saying May the Fourth be with you all, but y’all know...I’m all about that Revenge of the Fifth anyway," tweeted a fan.

"May the fourth be with you all! And happy revenge of the fifth  star wars marathon continuing today may fifth with episodes 4-7 maybe nine and some mando. Might even take more pictures kinda wanna get out and do more photoshoots," wrote a fan. 

Another fan tweeted, "May the fourth be with you to harness the force so tomorrow when you go against Seoul you can go full darkside and gain the revenge of the fifth as you slaughter your way to victory like Anakin slaughters younglings, mercilessly. #TooSoon #ByeByeYounglings."

May The Fifth be with you, indeed!
