If you weren’t lucky enough to be at the humongous Star Wars premiere in Los Angeles (we’re not bitter about them forgetting our invite, honest) here’s what went down as the seventh instalment of the epic franchise kicked off last night.
A quarter-mile tent linked three iconic Los Angeles cinemas, The Dolby Theatre, The TCL Chinese Theatre and The El Capitan Theatre, making this no ordinary film premiere.
The Dolby Theatre (home to the Oscars) was the main venue, to which the great and good – old and new – of Star Wars legend were warmly welcomed.
Everyone who's everyone was there – even brand new droid BB-8.
Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o and friends.
Director Steven Spielberg was there with his wife, the actress Kate Capshaw, suggesting his rivalry with George is on hold for now.
The inimitable Carrier Fisher, aka Princess Leia, was being her usual kooky self. Never change, Carrie.
The world’s defining voice in music and pop culture since 1952.
