  • Star Wars Battlefront 2's Free Last Jedi Season Of Content Launches

The force was in downtown Los Angeles Saturday night for the world premiere of the highly-anticipated eighth installment of the "Star Wars" franchise, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

The Last Jedi has its own variety of new planets.

Boyega's earlier tweets prompted a flurry of Star Wars jokes and memes online, including one from a fan who suggested Harrison Ford fly him to the premiere.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" opens in theaters Thursday, Dec. 14 and tickets are still available, but going fast.

Like Fisher and Hamill, Harrison Ford was a "Star Wars" mainstay as loveable rogue Han Solo - but the character is missing from the latest chapter, having been killed off.

Make no mistake, Christmas is all well and good - but it's got nothing on the Star Wars: The Last Jedi release week.

In the surgical assault that led England to that point, Australia's bowlers did them a favour by bowling so well. England could surrender the Ashes next week at the WACA ground in Perth, where it has not won a Test since 1978.

Written by Johnson, "The Last Jedi" picks up directly where "The Force Awakens" left off, with Rey looking to Luke to teach her about The Force. Obviously, I'm really nervous. In addition to the usual categories franchise pictures like Star Wars tend to compete in, such as sound mixing and visual effects, it seems that Disney will also be campaigning Mark Hamill for Best Actor and Daisy Ridley for Best Actress.

"I think it's because the world we live in is a changing and evolving place that it retains the simplicity of those elements", she said. I'm feeling good, overall.

Joining John at the premiere were his co-stars Adam Driver and Domhnall Gleeson.

"I want to sit in with them and hear my first experience of this movie - to hear all the gasps, to hear the laughs, to see everybody lifting their seat for the exciting moments".

ABC News and Lucasfilm are both part of parent company Disney.
