With France, like the rest of the world, in the grip of Star Wars fever, an intergalactic spaceship and its two storm troopers, crash landed onto a Normandy beach at the weekend. Well, kind of.

The spaceship on the beach at Urville-Nacqueville near Landemer was actually a remnant of World War Two that two artists had decided to give a futuristic makeover.

A local artist named Baby K turned a huge concrete block left over from the war into a Star Wars space ship with the help of a little paint.

The video below shows how they did it.

'Solo: A Star Wars Story' will grace the festival's red carpet ahead of its release in France and the US.
“Presented out of competition, the latest film of the Star Wars galaxy (directed) by Ron Howard brings together Han Solo, his faithful Chewbacca, the crooked Lando Calrissian, the Millenium Falcon and of course the droids,” the festival said on its website.
'Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith' was the last in the franchise to air at Cannes in 2005.
The latest instalment takes the audience back to the youth of the famous smuggler and pilot Han Solo, played by US actor Alden Ehrenreich.
It is the second spin-off derived from the famous science fiction series, after 'Rogue One' was released in December 2016 which made more than $1 billion at the box office.
The Cannes International Film Festival will run from May 8th to 19th.
