All the stars had all flown in from Los Angeles, where the world premiere was held on Monday.
The Star Wars Fans, waving lightsabers, cheered as a procession of stormtroopers, led by Darth Vader, marched down the red carpet before the stars arrived in Leicester Square on Wednesday night. Famous droids C-3PO and R2-D2 and new robot BB-8 also made an appearance.
