Sydney, Australia was probably one of the biggest events because the one and only Harrison Ford was present. Ford took the time to take selfies and chat with fans lined up at the red carpet with the gorgeous Sydney Opera House as a backdrop to the event.

And finally a visual surprise in Tokyo, Japan with John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, J.J. Abrams and Adam Driver.

I gotta say this was once of the most exciting events because of how it mixes glamour with Star Wars effects. I mean John Boyega in a suit with a lightsaber was certainly a nice touch.

The fans were clearly impressed with this one as the world eagerly awaits for the movie’s opening on 17 Dec!
