'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Premiere: THR's Live Blog
The world premiere for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is underway in Hollywood.
Details about the film, directed by J.J. Abrams, have been highly secretive leading up to its premiere. Even the invitation to the world premiere asked that guests hold back from revealing any spoilers after they watch the film. Disney chose not to screen the film early for critics or other press, so only a select few had seen the title prior to its world premiere.
Force Awakens, of course, stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson along with original trilogy stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.
Below is The Hollywood Reporter's live blog, featuring THR's on-site reporters at Monday's premiere.
