Star Wars fans have a surprise though as the movie, that is slated to release on 25 May, is getting a surprise Cannes Film Festival 2018 premiere on 15 May.

Solo stars Alden Ehrenreich as the titular Han Solo, hero of four of the previous eight films in the main Star Wars canon. The other Star Wars films that screened in the festival are 2002's Attack of the Clones and 2005's Revenge of the Sith. "Presented Out of Competition, the latest film of the Star Wars galaxy by Ron Howard brings together Han Solo, his faithful Chewbacca, the crooked Lando Calrissian, the Millenium Falcon, and, of course, the droids", the festival's official announcement reads in part. However, Solo is not the first to join Cannes.

It has been announced that the opening night film on 8 May will be Everybody Knows, starring Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem.

Cate Blanchett, Benicio Del Toro, France's Bertrand Bonello and Switzerland's Ursula Meier will chair the juries who will decide which films and filmmakers receive the event's prestigious prizes. This was reported in the organizing Committee of the festival.
