Last night, the mammoth Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiered in London amidst fanfare.
However, a major talking point from the well-attended event was Trafalgar Square lighting up as a lightsaber.
London has been the home of many great premieres, and they always go all out for the occasion. Last night, they lit up the Nelson Column in the Trafalgar Square.
The Star Wars cast got to push the button after Nigeria’s John Boyega announced, “One more surprise,” and the city square lit up with both Jedi and Sith lightsabers. It’s wonderful to see the arts celebrated in such a big way in London like this.
