Star Wars film to screen in the UAE first?
OK, let’s look at the rumours and the facts. We know that the countdown is on, and it’s less than 100 days until screens across the world show Star Wars: The Force Awakens… But is it only 96 days until UAE residents get the first look?
After initial reports that the film would launch on December 17 in the UAE, Imdb have caused a super-fan meltdown by listing the UAE release date as December 15 – that’s earlier than anywhere else in the world.
Part of the movie was filmed in Abu Dhabi, and according to The National “big things are planned in the capital for the movie’s release date.”
It might be time to start planning your Star Wars costume now… Luckily, back on International Star Wars Day (May the 4th, obviously) we found the Dubai shops selling Luke, Han, Leia and Darth costumes.
