star wars the force awakens


Unless you have been living under a ROCK for the past month, you will be well aware (if not overly excited) that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is about to hit our screens this week. 

Whether you have been enjoying or loathing all the build up, last night's Los Angeles première looked like a helluva lot of fun. 

And if the initial outstanding reviews have not got you super excited, then brace yourself for the nine best moments from last night's red carpet. 

1) Joseph Gordon Levitt took his fandom to new heights 


And yeah he pretty won the entire night dressed up as Yoda.

2) Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello made their first post-marriage red carpet appearance 

And Sofia even paid homage to the early films by donning a Princess Leia inspired hairdo. 

3) Harrison Ford proved that he still has it 

He looked better than ever on the red carpet with his wife, Calista Flockhart.

4) The robots absolutely killed it

This little guy was moving around the carpet by himself. 

5) The after party looked RIDICULOUS 

Party goers enjoyed being flanked by stormtroopers whilst eating Hans Solo's face on a cake. The DREAM.

6) Lupita Nyong'o was hands down best dressed (but new star Daisy Ridley gave her a run for her money)


We have to give Lupita the win though for her robotic inspired look. 

7) It was a cosplay fans DREAM 


It all looks SO REAL. 

8) Domhnall Gleeson brought his Dad 

And they obviously enjoyed a sneaky pint. 

8) George Lucas got a standing ovation 

Rumour has it that the auditorium stood to acknowledge the director of the original films after he had shared a moment with the new director, JJ Abrams, on the red carpet. 



Finally, the wait is almost over, with less than half a day to go until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits Irish cinemas.

But even if you're not a Star Wars buff, we reckon you'll still get a little kick out of the mini-makeover one of Dublin's landmarks got today.

The O'Connell St Spire is no longer just the tall silver yoke we know and love – for today only, it's a full-on Star Wars Lightsaber.

Amazing. Will it light up tonight? We certainly hope so.

Buzz for the new film has been steadily building for the last few months, with many avid fans pre-booking spots for midnight screenings all over the country this evening.

Last night Dubliner Domhnall Gleeson took to the red carpet in Hollywood for the film's world premiere, with his dad Brendan in tow.

But the real queen of the Star Wars press tour so far has to be Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia).

The actress, who had her first role in the film franchise aged just 19, has been doing the interview circuit with her bulldog Gary for the last few weeks, and she's been a joy to behold.

"I think in my mouth, so I don't lie," she said recently in explanation of her hilariously no-bullsh*t interview style.
