Star Wars Red Carpet Live

The entire cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit the red carpet in Leicester Square for one of the biggest London premieres in recent history.

Stars including, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill jetted to the UK for the European opening after Tuesday’s LA world premiere.

And London certainly pulled out all the stops as not one, but three of the Leicester Square cinemas hosted the event.


An enormous red carpet snaked its way around the whole of the central London square, where fans were able to congregate to meet their idols.

The extravaganza, hosted at The Odeon, The Empire and The Vue, was live-streamed and hosted by Alex Zane, Jim Chapman and Craig Stevens.


Director JJ Abrams told Chapman: “It’s an enormous relief and an incredible honour to be here for such an amazing event.”
