Disney and Lucasfilm announced that the official review embargo for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be lifted at 12:01 a.m. PST on Wednesday, December 16.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will make its Hollywood premiere on Monday and press screenings will take place the following day. Monday's star-studded event will take place at 6:30 p.m. PST. "Security is said to be extra tight and Disney is discouraging people from bringing large bags and purses," reports The Wrap, "while outlawing cameras altogether."

"For your safety and security, we ask you leave masks, face shields, or other facial feature obstructing headgear or make-up, as well as light sabers, blasters, or other weaponry (real or simulated) at home," reads a humorous portion of Disney and Lucasfilm's email to attendees. "Should you come down with the Dantari Flu, can’t seem to shake off that case of Hibernation Sickness, or your Droid has hidden your keys and you are running late, please contact…"

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in U.S. theaters on December 18.
