New Delhi: In the final hours of its release, ‘Star War’ fans in India have been left frustrated and disappointed after a delay in the film’s release.
The film’s production company, Theatrical Studios India, has confirmed that the final cuts for the ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and ‘The Return of the Jedi’ movies will not be available for screening at the theaters until May 31.

We have to release them to theaters to show the audience how the film was produced,” Akshay Kumar, co-president and chief executive officer of the company, said.
But the delay has also left the Indian public with no idea what to expect from the two sequels.

The film stars George Takei as Captain Kirk, played by Leonard Nimoy.
The movie was directed by James Cameron and stars Harrison Ford, Kate Mulgrew, Anthony Daniels, Michael J. Fox, Peter Mayhew and Kate Mulleavy.
The sequel was scheduled to be released in India on April 1, 2019.
