Star Wars fans from across the galaxy flocked to the Shrine Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles Saturday night for the world premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. John Boyega even used the Force to make sure he got there.

Attendees were in for a treat as they arrived for the first screening of The Last Jedi in front of an audience. The extensive carpet featured a giant constructed AT-AT walker on a rebuilt version of the Battle of Crait (which takes place in the film). The white carpet leads to red and an area lined with fans, press, and overwhelming enthusiasm. If the carpet looks especially sparkly, we've discovered the secret: There's actually glitter lining it.

How do we get that job? As stars flocked to the premiere, a few familiar faces made an appearance as well. C-3PO, R2-D2, and BB-8 all were caught wandering around Crait greeting guests and fans. No sign of a porg yet, though.

Couldn't make it to the premiere? Don't worry. There's a "Social Stage" at the event where you could see your reactions and tweets join the action. Plus, you can watch the live stream on StarWars.com and catch every single angle of the carpet. 

It's all Star Wars all the time tonight. So tune in for the madness, and may the Force be with you.
