Air France Showing Star Wars Episode 7 Before Worldwide Release

Star Wars Episode 7

Star Wars Episode 7- The Force Awakens will hit theaters on December 18. It seems like everywhere you look, there is some sort of tie-in to the movie. Toys, clothes, costumes- you name it. There’s even a Star Wars themed ANA plane and Uber sent out Stormtrooper cars to lucky riders in September.

While I liked the original three Star War films, I’m not a fan of the newer ones and have no plans to see Episode 7.

However, if you are a fan, here is a way to see Star Wars Episode 7 a couple of days before it hits theaters worldwide.

Of course there’s a catch.

Air France has a Flight & Cinema offer where those that take part will see the new Star Wars movie before just about anyone else.

The airline along with its partner EuropaCorp CINEMAS are offering a free ticket to the early showing of Star Wars along with a transfer from the airport to the movie theater in a Star Wars shuttle!

To qualify you’ll need to fly on one of four Air France flights on December 15:

  • AF083- San Francisco to Paris
  • AF065- Los Angeles to Paris
  • AF011 New York to Paris
  • AF009 New York to Paris

Flights have to be booked before December 10 and then you’ll need to complete an online form to take advantage of the Star Wars Offer. A confirmation will be received within a few days.

I’m not sure even the biggest Star Wars fan would take a special trip to Paris just to see the new film a couple of days before its release. However, if you happen to be flying on one of the flights listed above, it would definitely be fun to do.

  1. Ryan- I wondered the same thing! Assumed the movie would be shown in English since it seems to only be available to those 4 flights coming in from the US.

  2. It is being released “early” in France due to a tradition/law that Wednesdays are leisure days (or half days) for kids and thus new film releases are on Wednesdays.
