News broke on Thursday of the recently announced date and city for the world premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Hollywood Reporter shared the latest scoop.
Disney and Lucasfilm will present the seventh episode on December 14 in Los Angeles. It’s said to be a “massive world premiere.” After its world premiere in the states, media and publicity will head over to London and other various parts of the world.
The Los Angeles premiere is sure to be one of the hottest tickets in recent Hollywood history, with executives, agents and journalists jockeying for a coveted invite. In addition, Disney is attempting to keep the film’s secrets under wraps, so there likely will be minimal screenings for press and cast and crew in advance of the premiere.
Fun fact, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope premiered at Hollywood’s Chinese Theatre in 1977.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to hit theaters on December 16 in France, December 17 in the United Kingdom and then finally in the United States on December 18.
