Red Carpet Photos and Twitter Reactions From the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ World Premiere
Star Wars invaded Hollywood last night, December 14, hosting the world premiere of Episode VII aka Star Wars: The Force Awakens across three different movie theaters and a quarter-mile-long tent connecting all three.
All that space was necessary, too, as the theaters can hold 6,000 audience members. And with many of the guests being Hollywood elite — along with the stars of the eagerly-anticipated movie, of course — the fashion on the red carpet was out of this world. Just check out the photos below!
Jedi mind tricks (and a press embargo) are preventing critics from publishing reviews until tomorrow, but in the meantime, we’ve interspersed the red carpet photos below with rave reviews the attendees tweeted after the big event. No spoilers, of course!
