ROTS was not in competition at the Cannes Film Festival–please, movies most of us would watch generally don’t win the Palme D’Or–but it did have a splashy world premiere and a pretty enthusiastic reception on May 15, 2005. George Lucas and most of the main stars turned out, including a bald Natalie Portman who had shaved off her hair while filming “V For Vendetta.”

    Been missing – just returned from Europe but this post reminded me of why I included Cannes in my 2006 trip. Got a photo standing in the same place on the film festival red carpet as my favorite film folks. Still have that photo saved in my favorites because, well, obviously. Also – in my 2014 Europe trip I did return to Naboo and the Lake Retreat. Brought along Anakin and PadmĂ© “action” figures to recreate AotC moments at the actual site….because, well, obviously.
