The Solo: A Star Wars Story world premiere was a night to remember! Not only because I “walked” it with a knee brace, crutches and a wheelchair after getting hurt that morning but also because it was a Star Wars premiere!!!
Having been a part of the previous Star Wars press junkets, I was really excited about actually being able to attend the red carpet event, screening the movie and enjoying the after party.
Solo: A Star Wars Story World Premiere
Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the Millennium Falcon. In addition to the Star Wars Fans in attendance, there are also a ton waiting behind the gates to catch a glimpse of celebrities as they made their way onto the red carpet. As you can imagine, people were going crazy with each celeb.
Before making my way to my seat, I was able to snap some celebrity selfies (which you know are my favorite…I wasn’t going to let a busted knee stop me from getting my pictures).
*I miss her on Grey’s Anatomy
*He was the first celeb I saw when I got onto the red carpet and he actually came up to chat with me because he spotted my knee brace. Apparently he had knee surgery done about three weeks ago.
*My daughter and I love watching Dancing with the Stars together, so I had to ask for a picture with her.
Solo: A Star Wars Story Screening
As I waited for Solo: A Star Wars Story to begin, I spotted Mark Hamill just a few row behind me. When George Lucas entered the theater, the room erupted in applause and it was the first time I had seen someone get a standing ovation while making their way to their seats. I really enjoyed the film and you can check back for my official Solo: A Star Wars Story movie review tomorrow.
Solo: A Star Wars Story After Party
After the movie, we made our way on over to the Solo: A Star Wars Story After Party. While I was there, I was able to take the following celebrity selfies.
Alden Ehrenreich (“Han Solo”)
Woody Harrelson (“Tobias Beckett”)
Director Ron Howard
Joonas Suotamo (“Chewbacca”)
Stephanie Sigman (from the show SWAT)
