Star Wars: The Force Awakens: See it two days early in Paris

Posted on

Star Wars fans have been biding their time for more than three decades to catch up with Luke, Leia, and Han — it’s been 32 years since Return of the Jedi — but those with money to burn can now shave two days off the agonizing wait until The Force Awakens arrives.

All they need to do is book a flight to Paris.

Air France is offering a promotion through which Star Wars diehards can fly into Charles de Gaulle Airport and get whisked directly to a theater to catch The Force Awakens — in English, bien sur — on Dec. 16, two full days before the movie opens stateside. Participating flights depart from San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York.

Incidentally, Air France isn’t the only airline offering a Force Awakens tie-in: All Nippon Airways is flying its own Star Wars-themed jets adorned with R2-D2 and BB-8 imagery.

Either way, the cost of international airfare is surely a small price to pay for bragging rights, no?
