It’s finally here! As the world premiere for Star Wars: The Force Awakens took place at LA’s TCL Chinese Theatre. A huge section of Hollywood Boulevard had to be closed due to traffic and more than 180 fans had been sleeping outside the theatre for over a week in the hope of securing tickets. And for the lucky ones that did get in, they would have seen stars Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford amongst others reunited on the red carpet. Check out the photos from the premiere below along with some reaction:
