Legendary filmmaker George Lucas is set to receive the honorary Palme d’Or at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival next month, as announced by festival organizers on Tuesday.

The honor will be presented to Lucas at the closing ceremony of the 77th French film festival on May 25. This achievement adds him to the exclusive list of recipients of the honorary Palmes, joining the likes of Harrison Ford, Michael Douglas, Tom Cruise, Forest Whitaker, and Jodie Foster.

Expressing his gratitude, Lucas stated, “The Festival de Cannes has always held a special place in my heart. I am truly honored by this special recognition which means a great deal to me.”

The Cannes Film Festival is scheduled to run from May 14-25, with the closing ceremony being broadcast in France on France Télévisions and streamed on Brut. This is a well-deserved acknowledgement for George Lucas, a talented writer, director, and producer who has made significant contributions to the world of cinema.
