The Force was strong at last night’s star-studded premiere of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Celebrities and fans alike shared the red carpet with a squadron of storm troopers, droids and at least one Yoda. Below are some of our favorite moments:
Looks like between director J.J. Abrams and the original intergalactic heartthrob, Han Solo, a.k.a. Harrison Ford.
Carrie Fisher, sans iconic hair buns, embraces costar John Boyega.
Just when you think you can’t love Joseph Gordon-Levitt more, here he comes down the carpet all green and absolutely adorable.
Josh Gad, the voice of Olaf from Disney’s “Frozen”, strikes a pose with some friendly storm troopers.
Congrats to #JJAbrams and the entire cast and crew on an incredible film. #ForceAwakens made me a giddy 10 year old all over again.— Josh Gad (@joshgad) December 15, 2015
Steven Spielberg — who recommended Abrams for the job — was out to support everyone with his wife Kate Capshaw.
Some dear old friends also stopped by to share in the fun.
And while we’re at it, let’s give a shout out to another amazing little green guy:
