attends the World Premiere of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at the Dolby, El Capitan, and TCL Theatres on December 14, 2015 in Hollywood, California.

The world premiere of Star Wars The Force Awakens took place in Hollywood last night and it appears that most of the world was there in person.

The premiere for the latest film in George Lucas’s saga is the cinematic event of the year. It is a film three years in production and thirty-two years in the imagination and last night it screened for the first time to a bevy of expectant fans.

Celebrities and fans mingled with the actors and producers of the new film, and it was watched by thousands across the world.

Tonight we see the film and we’ll have our review ready for you tomorrow morning 8.01AM, then the UK Premiere hits town on Wednesday night and we’ll be there too.

Until then here’s a gallery of images from last night’s event.
