Here at AiPT! we have a serious Star Wars obsession — like, super duper serious. We spent the entire month of December talking about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and with Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out May 25th, we decided to do it all over again. For the next month AiPT! will be flooded with Star Wars YouTube videos, podcasts, cosplay, comic reviews, novel reviews, and hell, maybe we’ll even dive back into the dreaded holiday special from the ’70s.
This year the Cannes Film Festival will host a special screening of Disney’s second installment in the Star Wars Anthology series, Solo: A Star Wars Story. The screening is scheduled to take place on May 15, ten days before the film is released in the United States on May 25.
The screening comes as a surprise to many as Canne’s has been known to act a bit high-brow. Heck they banned Netflix films entirely, so to see a Star Wars film make the cut was more than a little surprising. Either way Disney is going all-in with Cannes. What does all-in mean? Why movie posters of course!
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters in the United States May 25th.
