‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Announced World Premiere Location and Date
Although Star Wars: The Force Awakens is “officially” hitting theaters on December 18, most fans will be able to see it the night before, when theaters begin screening their Friday releases early — usually around 10PM, but sometimes as early as 7PM. But if you’re one of the select few and privileged, you could see this highly-anticipated event film a little earlier…if you make it into the world premiere. Which isn’t likely, but you sure could try.
Per THR, Lucasfilm and Disney have set the world premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens for December 14 in Los Angeles. After that, the film will have a premiere in London, “followed by other events around the world.” A major premiere typically draws actors, filmmakers and various members of the production, along with studio executives and a handful of journalists — so while you won’t be on that VIP list, at least you know when to expect the first reactions to the film.
There will reportedly be very few general press and industry screenings around the premiere, though it’s not as if Disney and Lucasfilm are in desperate need of the coverage. As for the rest of us, we’ll be waiting until December 17, when we can see the latest Star Wars at our local theater the night before its official release — and that’s still fun and exciting! Rumor has it pre-sale tickets should be available pretty soon, so keep an eye out.
