May The 4th Be With You: Royal Selangor Celebrates Star Wars
To devoted fans of the Star Wars franchise, the date of May 4 is an important one. It is an informal day of celebration originating from punning the date with the popular catchphrase "May the Force be with you", resulting in the variant phrase "May the Fourth be with you".
To celebrate, Royal Selangor has released a new line of collectible figurines featuring characters from the Disney+ series, The Mandalorian, further expanding the pewter maker's Star Wars collection. The Limited Edition Mandalorian figurines, which is also available in Gilt, are respectively limited to 1,500 and 300 pieces worldwide, and will be available online and in stores from May 4.
The fun doesn't stop there. The Royal Selangor Visitor Centre is also hosting a number of events in honour of movie franchise in the month of May. The headliner is an epic Star Wars Exhibition, designed in collaboration with the Star Wars Malaysia Fan Club that will showcase iconic Star Wars treasures and replicas from May 8 onwards.
Fusing heritage with pop culture, the Star Wars Wayang Kulit performance is also must-see show for Malaysian fans. In collaboration with Fusion Wayang Kulit, this performance will feature famous Star Wars characters in traditional shadow puppet form. These puppets will be on display during the exhibition throughout May while the actual performance will take place on May 29 and 30
