MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Grab your lightsabers! It's national Star Wars Day! The day is celebrated on May 4 every year in honor of the pun "May the fourth be with you."
On Wednesday, May 4, 2022, Phil Carper from R2-MKE, a local Star Wars droid making group, joined CBS 58 to talk about the full-size replica robots they build of popular Star Wars characters. He even brought in his own BB-8 life-size droid.
