John Boyega is using The Force to help him make the Hollywood premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Saturday night. 

It seems the actor is stuck in Atlanta due to severe winter weather. 

On Saturday morning, he tweeted about his plight. 

"Wow ATL. Looks like no one’s leaving! Guess I’ll start a family now...." he said. "Cold! My thighs won’t even generate the heat anymore."

He then made his call (which is likely tongue-in-cheek) for help. 

"Trying to get back for the LA premiere! I actually NEED a pilot !!!," Boyega tweeted. 

The severe snowstorm has knocked out power for more than 100,000 in Atlanta and made traveling almost impossible, AJC.com reports

Last Jedi director Rian Johnson saw the tweets and replied, "Hahahaha oh my god GET HERE JOHN!"

Around 2:30 p.m., Boyega tweeted that he did make it to Los Angeles, but without his bags. 

"I made it ! Without luggage but wooooooooohoooo! As if weather can stop a Nigerian kmt," he said. 

Boyega stars in Last Jedi as fan-favorite Finn. 

The premiere of the highly anticipated Johnson-directed installment will take place in downtown L.A. 

Dec. 9, 2:30 p.m.: Boyega tweeted that he arrived in L.A.
