For as extraordinarily popular as the original Star Wars movies have been even since their initial release, it's hard to believe that there exists any developed location on the planet where the films haven't been shown in theaters at some point in time.

But somehow it seems that China has been left out of the party all this time. Although the second set of films: The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith were all shown in Chinese movie theaters upon their original releases, the original three films never made it to the big screen, even during their re-releases.

Now, the balance will be finally be restored to the Force in China this summer. All six entries in the Star Wars movie universe will be screened in full cinematic glory for audiences attending the 18th Shanghai International Film Festival from June 13 through June 21. Organizers of the event are no doubt excited, heralding the set of movies as "the greatest Sci-fi masterpiece in film history."

In addition to satisfying the yen of Chinese fans for the original films, the screenings will of course also whet the country's appetite for the new slate of Star Wars films on the horizon, beginning with The Force Awakens this December.
