Star Wars: The Force Awakens World Premiere – An Outsider’s Guide

 Hacking into Star Wars: The Force Awakens World PremiereThe “Movie What! team”, attempts to hack into the Force Awakens Premiere!

Hey Movie What fans! Well so we finally finished editing our attempt to hack into the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens World Premiere” and boy was it awesome! Check out the video, hopefully you’ll get a sense of what it was like to crash one of the biggest events in movie history!  We really weren’t expecting to see anything you know, we assumed there was going to be tons of people there and that we wouldn’t get anywhere near the stars but it’s really a good example of the adage, “prepare for a success”.   In the end we, were able to see basically all of the stars:  Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita, Nyong’o, Andy Serkis and best of all – Frank Oz. Oz was the best as he basically stood there for a good 20 min signing everyone’s poster.  If we had “Planned for Success” we would have brought some posters too 🙁

Disney planted this giant tent in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard!  It took up several blocks all the way from the Hollywood mall to the TLC Chinese Theater!  The movies was playing in all three major theaters on Hollywood Blvd.  This tent was where the main events and pre and after parties were happening and although we weren’t able to actually get in there, we did make, some light attempts at it.  We did get a peek in the event at one point, which was difficult because as soon as we got near the entrance  security would yell “no photography!  no photography!”  actually I find this Hollywood fame celebrity phenomenon really interesting. On the one hand they want lots of screaming fans jostling for position to take their picture and get their photograph but then at the same time they act like they don’t want you there. Go figure?  You will see what I mean in the video.

So we had to do some stealth vlogging to get you a glimpse inside.

The Red Carpet is empty!

We got a good feel for the area. Now we were stupid because when we first got there, the railing next to the red carpet was completely empty.  All the stars were in the film when we arrived and if we had just stayed there we would have had first hand encounter with them but like I said, we were stupid.  Instead, we spend that time looking around and stuff.  When we did finally return there were other people there and we had this big

encounter with security where they got really mean with everyone.  Basically at that point, if you weren’t touching the railing you had to leave.   But we found a way too kind of hack our way back into the situation.  Anyway, you have to watch the video to see how it all transpired. That’s it, enjoy! Let us know what you think in the comments below!
