We’re going to need a bigger lectern.
Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg will deliver Harvard’s 2016 commencement speech, the university announced Thursday.
The director of such movies as Jaws, E.T., Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan, and Schindler’s List will address students at the Cambridge, Massachusetts campus on May 26.
“Steven Spielberg is a genre-defying filmmaker whose unparalleled creativity has fueled countless imaginations,” Harvard President Drew Faust said in a statement. “An extraordinary storyteller, he has given voice to the silenced and brought history to life.”
To accompany the announcement, the university also created a video paying tribute to several of Spielberg’s films, which you can watch below.
