Hollywood Boulevard was shut down for a four-block stretch for what was possibly the most iconic opening of all time- the Los Angeles Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere.
The street was lined with literally thousands of fans and what seemed like equal levels of security (and we aren’t just talking about the stormtroopers!) to mark the occasion which did not disappoint. The red carpet, outside of the Dolby and TCL Chinese Theaters was tented and felt like it’s own Star Wars world. You could barely walk a few steps within this tunnel without see an amazing display including giant lightsabers, lego reproductions of Kylo Ren, BB-8 and Rey, and countless Star Wars- themed decorations, costumes and of course photo opps!
The Force Awakens main cast were all in attendance including the stunning Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson, along with original trilogy stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. We also spotted the newest baddie Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Billie Lourd, Gwendoline Christie, Lupin Wyong’o, Andy Serkis and other Force Awakens talent, plus Peter Mayhew (the one and only chewbacca!)
The force behind the force, power trio (Force Awakens) Director JJ Abrams, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg all walked the carpet, greeting each other and getting the acknowledgement (a.k.a screams) from fans that was due for their respective roles in creating the Star Wars universe.
