Americans take a lot of things for granted — such as the bizarre ubiquity of Kevin James, the ability to order a $1 burrito on your phone, and (apparently) the original Star Wars trilogy. The 18th Annual Shanghai International Film Festival, aside from being the home of the inaugural Jackie Chan Action Film Week, will also make history this year by marking the first time the original Star Wars trilogy has ever been screened in China.

Of course, people in China have definitely seen A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi — but the SIFF screening marks their first theatrical showing in the country. The Star Wars prequel trilogy will also be screened during the festival, though no history will be made — or genuine pleasure derived — from such an inclusion.

Heralding the Star Wars franchise as "the greatest sci-fi masterpiece in film history" and "one of the most important cultural events [of] the 20th century" (no arguments here), SIFF runs from June 13 to June 21.
