Is Star Wars returning to Fortnite this May 4 for Star Wars Day? New leaks certainly suggest that is the case.
As part of a promotion for the latest Star Wars trilogy, Disney has once again teamed up with Epic Games to release content for a Galaxy Far, Far Away in Fortnite.
Players were able to get their hands on skins for Rey, Kylo Ren, and a Sith Trooper, as well as familiarize themselves with in-game lightsabers.
Now, it looks like Star Wars Day 2022 (AKA May 4) might be bringing popular content back. Recent leaks have suggested that perhaps the Star Wars items will return alongside the Obi-Wan Kenobi show on May 27.
Now, it looks like the crossover will appear even sooner than expected.

Fortnite x Star Wars Crossover back on May 4?
It looks like Star Wars could be back in Fortnite before too long, with a May 4 date looking very likely.
Apparently, Epic Games recently changed all Star Wars cosmetics in-game, making them compatible with the new Item Shop. This suggests popular content will be making a comeback very soon, but there’s more evidence pointing to an impending drop.
According to FortniteNewsEpic Games just fixed a Star Wars string in the code that references lightsabers, a sure sign that unique melee weapons will return.

Additionally, leaks seem to believe that an Imperial Stormtrooper NPC will soon be coming to Fortnite, and Darth Vader himself is supposed to drop next season as well.
Of course, this is all just a rumor for now, but it seems extremely likely. Unfortunately, the recent leak of Attack on Titan skins in Fortnite turned out to be almost wrong.
After all, the “Rumbling” leak seems to point to the new Street Fighter characters that are available now!
