  Four-month wait for Star Wars fans

Fans in London queue for Episode 1
Fans in London queue for Episode 1

Two Star Wars fans are so desperate to see the next episode of the space saga that they have started to queue for tickets - four and half months before it comes out!

Jeff Tweiten and John Guth from Seattle, America began their extra long camping trip on New Year's Day at their local cinema.

Queuing is common in America

Camping out for big films isn't as unusual in America as it would be here, but the length of the duo's planned wait is the longest ever.

People waited in line to see Episode I as well, but no one felt the need to start quite so early.

Fans can watch on a website

Tweiten and Guth have promised to set up a website so people can experience the queue without having to leave their own home.

That website isn't up and running yet, but soon www.waitingforstarwars.com will be the place to go to catch up with the queue.

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones is released in both the US and the UK on 16 May 2002.
