Times Square teams up with the New York Jedi to offer fans of the epic space opera franchise the opportunity to train under the principles of the Saber Academy. From live light saber duals and demonstrations to Star Wars themed trivia, "May The Fourth Be With You" festivities will take place at the Odditorium from 10am-3pm. Guests dressed as their favorite Star Wars character will receive half-price admission. From 10am-1pm, New York Jedi Masters will host 30 minute Jedi training classes showcasing light saber techniques and moves made popular in the famous film series by George Lucas. Classes are free with paid admission and each Jedi-in-training will receive a light saber and a Saber Academy certificate upon completion. Online class registration is available now through May 2 at ripleysnewyork.com. Space is limited; participation will be confirmed in the order that it is received. The first 15 fans to register will receive a free Ripley's gift bag. Throughout the Odditorium, guests will be greeted by Ripley's staff dressed as knights and dark lords, witness live light saber duals by New York Jedi members, and have the opportunity to take pictures with the Jedi Masters. Under the front marquee, prospective Jedi Knights can test their Star Wars knowledge with a series of trivia questions, such as famous quotes, name that character, heroes and villains, and more. Guests who answer correctly will receive 20% off admission. With more than 200 members since 2005 and counting, New York Jedi continues to grow in popularity, leading classes and demonstrations at popular conventions like Comic Con. As seen in the New York Times and on NBC's FirstLook, the community is made up of cosplayers, martial artists, and teachers, who develop and train using practical stage combat techniques, with the use of lightsabers relying heavily on many of the principles and training used by that of the Jedi Order including mental focus, martial arts training, and universal knowledge. Classes are available for kids ages five and older; participants ages 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Guests dressed as their favorite Star Wars character will receive half-price admission. Guests who participate in Star Wars trivia and answer questions correctly will receive 20% off admission.
