More than 4,000 people took part in a Star Wars race in Buenos Aires on Saturday night, joined by characters from the movie series, which is expected to release its seventh episode in 2015.

Participants ran wearing costumes featuring Star Wars characters such as Boba Fett, Princess Leia or Darth Vader.

This themed marathon, performed simultaneously in Brazil, celebrated "Star Wars Day", which is celebrated each year on the 4th of May by fans around the world.

George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, will celebrate his 70th birthday in ten days time.

The launch of a new Star Wars series will also be marked with a Star Wars movie marathon, when all episodes of the series will be shown in cinemas in Buenos Aires.
