While the rest of the world waits just a few more days to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the world premiere was held in Hollywood, California on Monday, which was the first time this highly-anticipated film was screened for fans and critics alike. The red carpet festivities were streamed live for fans around the world to see, but today we have several new videos from Walt Disney Studios that give fans a closer look inside the premiere itself. One of these videos shows Disney's Robert A. Iger introducing the cast and crew just before the screening started.
We also have a number of B-roll videos that showcase a number of different items that were on display during the premiere, such as a custom-wrapped Dodge Viper with Kylo Ren-themed graphics, large statues depicting characters such as Captain Phasma and much more. If that wasn't enough, the studio has also provided us with video interview clips straight from the red carpet, with new stars such as Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Daisy Ridley (Rey), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong'o (Maz Kanata).
