May the Forts Be With You!

It's May 4th and as most of you know, that means it is Star Wars day (May the Fourth Be With You)! We of course like to say, "May the Forts Be With You" but we might be biased.

At Fort Boards we are big fans of Star Wars. We know our Tauntauns from our Tatooine and our Anakins from our AT-AT's. We've used Fort Boards to build X-Wings and droids and Death Stars and more! We're going to work on getting a Millennium Falcon designed soon too!

One of the magical things about Star Wars, and a big reason why it has drawn such a large following of captivated fans, is the fully formed world they have created. There is such a deep history of the battles that have been waged and the many types of creatures that exist on the multitude of planets. Every new book and every new film just keeps building upon this world and this story too. It's hard not to get enthralled in the Star Wars universe.

And speaking of the Star Wars universe, we'd be lying if we said we weren't geeking out and excited for the upcoming movie, The Last Jedi, coming this December. And we're also going to be some of the first people at Disneyland when the new Star Wars Land opens up in 2019. We'd love to be there helping build the AT-ATs (out of Fort Boards).

So have a great Star Wars Day! If you build something Star Wars related out of Fort Boards or anything else, share it with us on Instagram with #maythefortsbewithyou and we'll be sure to like it. Thanks!
