'May the 4th Be With You!': Sydney Children's Hospital Patients Celebrate Star Wars Day

Patients from two children’s hospitals in Sydney, New South Wales, welcomed Star Wars Day, May 4, from atop the Sydney Tower Eye.

Footage released by Merlin Entertainments shows the children changint “May the 4th be with you!”

The patients, from the Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick, were accompanied by Darth Vader, a Jedi Knight, and an AT-AT driver, all characters from George Lucas’s Star Wars universe.

The group climbed 268 meters (879 feet) above the city to complete the Sydney Tower Eye SKYWALK and film the clips on the tower’s glass-bottomed viewing platform.
