Radiohead frontman chills on the red carpet with the much-loved bot
The Last Jedi hits cinemas on Friday (December 15) and was premiered at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium on Saturday night (December 9).
Yorke attended the event alongside Italian actress, and girlfriend, Dajana Roncione. While walking the red carpet, Yorke was photographed sitting cross-legged with the much-loved bot and recent addition to the Star Wars world, BB-8. See photos above and below.
Director Rian Johnson dedicated the premiere to the late Carrie Fisher. Johnson reflected on what he thought Fisher would be thinking if she was watching.
“I want to dedicate tonight to Carrie, who is up there right now flipping me the bird, saying, ‘Damn it Rian, don’t you dare make this night a solemn tribute,'” he said, adding: “So let’s all have a blast tonight for Carrie.”
Johnson also paid tribute to Fisher on the red carpet. “Once the audience sees her performance in this movie, she’s going to be there in all our hearts,” he said. “It’s bizarre not having her here tonight. She would be the life of the party.”
