Last night an X-Wing landed in Hollywood as Star Wars took over the town at the world premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The red carpet even was live streamed across the galaxy so fans from around the globe could watch as their favorite Star Wars actors and characters arrived.
Joss Whedon, famed director and Star Wars fan, took a moment to tell Variety about what type of Star Wars movie he prefers.
"I like the fact that this is sort of an ancillary tale and isn't as beholdened as the structure of the big monument pictures, so you know I like the little side tales, there about these little scrappy people that history forgets, those are my favorite kinds."
There are so many stories within Star Wars canon that have never made it to the big screen. We're hoping that Rogue One: A Stars Wars Story is just the beginning of many more tales to come.
