Stormtroopers Invade The White House, Michelle Obama Live-Tweets The Whole Thing

The White House welcomed a very special guest on Friday as everyone's favourite dustbin-shaped droid R2-D2 dropped in.

He was also joined by these two rather suspicious looking characters.

The Stormtroopers and R2-D2 also made a special appearance with White House spokesman John Earnest in the briefing room following President Obama's year-end news conference.

Obama was among the millions feeling the force as he sat down in the White House Family Theatre to watch 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' with families of military personnel killed in the line of duty.
