After two years, the stars of one of the biggest film franchises of all time have returned to London from a galaxy far, far away for the European Premiere of 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi', hosted at the Royal Albert Hall on 12th December. ODEON was there to capture the best bits from the red carpet!
The cast of 'The Last Jedi' hit the capital for the European premiere, where they were joined by a host of A-listers, including royals Prince William and Harry.
BB-8 was the first to pose for the cameras after rolling onto the red carpet, surrounded by an army of Stormtroopers, followed by Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Oscar Isaac (Poe), Domnhall Gleeson (General Hux) and Gwendoline Christie (General Phasma). New entries Laura Dern (Admiral Amilyn Holdo) and Benicio del Toro (DJ) also joined the team on the ready carpet.
The big star was obviously Mark Hamill, returning as Luke Skywalker and as the main character after a short appearance at the end of The Force Awakens. Alongside him, Anthony Daniels returns as C-3PO, the only character who's present in all the Star Wars movies.
Director Rian Johnson also paid tribute to Carrie Fisher, who passed away last year after finishing work on the film.
About the film
Picking up right where ‘The Force Awakens’ left off, ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ finds Rey, after finally discovering Luke Skywalker, beginning her training in the ways of the Force.
Starkiller Base may have been destroyed, but the First Order are far from defeated and the war between them and the Resistance grows ever more fierce. The Resistance could really use a Jedi Knight on their side – but Skywalker has decided that it’s time for the Jedi to end.
Feel the Force once again in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’, as heroes and villains old and new collide with the fate of the entire galaxy at stake.
