Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Stormtroopers On Red Carpet For European Premiere

A group of stormtroopers from the First Order opened the red carpet for the European premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens held at London's Leicester Square.

The evening's host, film critic Alex Zane, was joined by vlogger Jim Chapman on the red carpet to interview the stars of the movie, as well as fans.

The first "stars" of the film to arrive were droids R2-D2 and C-3PO, who ambled down the red carpet taking in the scenery.

The newest droid in the Star Wars family, BB-8, got a cheer from fans as it rolled down the red carpet.

BB-8 is one of the highlights of the new movie and is sure to gain a legion of fans.

Actor Warwick Davis, who starred in a few of the earlier Star Wars films and the latest one, could not resist posing for a selfie with BB-8 on the red carpet.
