Star Wars is getting on with various installments, and “May the 4th be with you” has gained global recognition. The name has gotten so huge that even Star Trek’s William Shatner could not resist posting about it on Twitter.
The 90-year-old actor showed his support for the Star Wars franchise by posting a meme. Perhaps trying to signal that he might be interested in joining Star Wars.

Of course, we all know that Shanter is not a part of the franchise, but what all of this implies is that the actor still has time to get on board on the Star Wars ship. As mentioned above, the massive number of projects Star Wars is creating a chance for him to jump up in the Star Wars universe as there could be loads of opportunities to get a role in any of the upcoming projects.
Well, Shatner can definitely join in because if you come to think of it, so many random actors have played the stormtrooper over time.
This could also be a small hint that Shatner is already a part of the franchise. It could also be that maybe he’s going to voice a character in the upcoming Star Wars: The Bad Batch, or God knows, maybe he might even appear in a live-action series of the show.
As of yet, there hasn’t been any official comment from Shatner, but if he joins the Star Wars Universe, he won’t be the only one. In the past, Simon Pegg, Brent Spiner, and even Shatner’s former co-star George Takei have been involved in both franchises. Showing that there is enough place in Hollywood for anyone who is capable.
There are some who can see Shatner as a betrayal joining Star Wars, particularly as he is mainly responsible for Star Trek’s success. I’d also like to wager that many others would be all right and not brutal to align with Star Wars or Star Trek. That being said, William Shatner has been without Star Trek for a long time, and I believe he could catch up on this.
Overall, I wouldn’t put much faith in William Shatner’s recent comment about May the Fourth’. The 90-year-old actor has been busy with spoken word albums and is still involved in the Star Trek fan culture. Maybe he’ll do something with Star Wars in the future, but with all he’s into right now, I wouldn’t expect him to go too far into the galaxy far, far away.
