Stormtroopers Take Over for the Star Wars: Force Awakens Premiere

We’ve been waiting all year, buying all the new toys to try and quench the undeniable thirst we all have for the new movie.

And it’s finally here! The premiere of the movie took place last night and now we’re all waiting for our turn on Thursday.

Hundreds of Star Wars fanatics camped outside the TCL Chinese Theatre over the last few days to try and get a glimpse of the stars that haven’t graced a Star Wars red carpet for a long time.

Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher joined us in a galaxy far far away once again, bringing with them the newbies to the franchise, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.

The premiere has been so hightly anticipated that the security was ridiculously tight and laced the red carpet all the way to the door of the theatre.

Stormtroopers walked alongside C-3PO and R2-D2 before our human stars took to the red carpet, which ran for a length of four blocks in Hollywood Boulevard.

The world premiere has taken over three cinemas, with 4000 guests estimated to attend.

The stars and the droids stopped to take pictures with fans before entering the cinema to view the new addition to the franchise for the first time.

Unfortunately, no hints of the film’s plot have been revealed, as journalists that were invited to the premiere were told to keep it under wraps. Which only makes it more exciting!

Star Wars creator George Lewis did have this to say though ‘Star Wars, “it’s a film about families and what one generation leaves behind another generation has to deal with”.

Have you got your tickets yet?!
