Ten years since the release of Revenge of the Sith, we are lucky enough to get a whole new start to the Star Wars franchise with The Force Awakens, and the series looks better than ever with Star Trek director, JJ Abrams, at the helm.

Many of the celebrities who went to the premiere on Monday, such as Rob Lowe and Elizabeth Banks have all tweeted their delight at how good the new film is. 

"There's a new hero in town, in a movie that DELIVERS. Cried like a baby, whooped like a teen!” - Rob Lowe

"StarWarsForceAwakens totally delivers no spoilers I repeat no spoilers again no spoilers just wow." - Elizabeth Banks
