"May the 24th be with you." Tonight, Star Wars fans across Acadiana are celebrating a new movie.

Jedis and siths alike attended the premier of Solo at the Grand 14 on Kaliste Saloom. Members of the Rebel Legion fan group dressed in Star Wars garb to honor the occasion.

Some even brought their own droids.

"It’s always great to see people’s reactions of us. We never get a dull reaction. Kids are great because they’re like oh my God, you’re coming off the screen!" said Nick Foreman.
