Star Wars: Episode X – Battle for the Beach

#MayThe4thBeWithYou

In a galaxy far, far away, or in an alternate universe, where all beach volleyball players are actually Jedi, fighting (with the Rebellion) against Imperial ‘dark’ forces, who’ve taken over the Center Court  in order to bring back freedom and justice. Too much?  Okay, we’ll stop there: Here are 8 (that's 4x2) photos where it looks like beach volleyballs are floating mid-air, as if being controlled by the force - all in honour of Star Wars Day; May the 4th be with you.
