The force is strong with this one.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that one of the most anticipated movies of the year is The Last Jedi. Star Wars is one of the most influential film series and one we hold very near and dear to our hearts. You know who else are huge fans? YouTubers!
12 December saw the European premiere of The Last Jedi hit London. Many of our faves were in attendance, making us jealous with their shots from the red carpet and their tweets about the movie. Since we couldn’t be at the premiere, we thought we’d do the next best thing: post a round-up of the night’s events! (We’re not going to lie, writing this up made us feel some major FOMO.)
Grab your porg plushies and let’s dive in!
Some unfortunately couldn’t attend

Sadly, some off our faves were unable to attend the premiere, but that didn’t stop them from making us super jealous. Just look at the selfie Matt Ley posted to his Twitter!
Glammed up and ready to go

Lily Melrose and dodie weren’t the only ones dressed up for the big premiere. Many of our faves donned their best suits and dresses in order to make a splash on the red carpet. From the looks of it, we need to grab some style tips from them!
I went to the nice lady at Urban Decay and she did it for me!! Thank you to your lovely staff @UrbanDecay ❤️

Smile for the camera
I never in a million years thought I’d be on the pap list for the red carpet at the Star Wars premiere. Yet, I was. Still shaking. This doesn’t happen to me. Should play it cool really but I feel like this is a bit of a career turning point here 😳 pic.twitter.com/jWgIabUKY0

He’s a real life Sith Lord!

We knew there was something PJ Liguori was hiding from us, but we didn’t think it was this! Who knew we had a genuine Sith Lord in our own backyard.

We’re definitely going to take note of this tip, Joe Tasker. The amount of times we trip over our feet and fall to the ground is ridiculous, but hopefully this keeps us from getting too embarrassed!
Not the slightest bit jealous…
Oh you all saw fucking Star Wars? You did? That’s great that’s sooooo fucking brilliant for you all, I’m super happy for every single fucking one of you. Seriously top marks guys. SO SHITCUNTINGLY HAPPY FOR YOU ALL AND NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST BIT JEALOUS. pic.twitter.com/kzEM6iImVw

If we didn’t know any better, we’d think that Michael Trueman was a bit upset about not being able to attend the premiere. But that’s just us speculating…
Christmas came early
The only half decent pic of @MikeDeForce and I from tonight! (not sure what the dude behind us is up to… LOL!) We were both SO excited to be invited to the premiere of the new Star Wars film – and it was EPIC! Christmas came early! 🎉❤️ #TheLastJedi… https://t.co/u0Hu7HWgrK pic.twitter.com/XX2jx5lOpc

It appears Christmas came early for Fleur DeForce, who got to attend the premiere with her hubby.
Also, can we take a moment to appreciate the photo bomber? Major props!

Show of hands: who else thinks Thomas Ridgewell had the best date at the premiere?
Like a kid in a candy store
— Phil Lester (@AmazingPhil) December 12, 2017
We can only imagine how Phil Lester would have reacted to being at the premiere. Probably like a kid in a candy store. (We would have felt the same way.)
A fun night was had by all
Wow, what a night! #TheLastJedi European Premiere was absolutely amazing, I don’t want to say too much about the film other than IT’S GREAT GO SEE IT!! https://t.co/TqbYKQF70e pic.twitter.com/N669vqmKKE

The Star Wars #TheLastJedi Premiere was so fun! I’m not going to comment on the film at all and let you all just experience it yourselves, but here’s some photos of me being way too over excited pic.twitter.com/cvlRjxypOC

#TheLastJedi was an absolute joy. pure escapism. had a huge grin on my face throughout. every character had something to do, everything felt connected by a singular theme. just had such a bloody great time. well done @rianjohnson x pic.twitter.com/6ufDCLNIjP
— Bertie Gilbert (@bertieglbrt) December 12, 2017
Overall, we’d say that everyone who attended the premiere had a pretty swell time. We just wish that either Bertie Gilbert, Daniel Dobbs, Sophie Newton or Connie Glynn had invited us to tag along… We wouldn’t have been too much trouble, promise!
May the force be with you.
From the sounds of it, The Last Jedi is definitely a movie we need to see. Our inner Star Wars fanatic is bursting to get out, so how about we all head to the cinema this weekend (lightsabers and all) and watch it? Popcorn’s on us!
