Watch the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Red Carpet Premiere

2015 has been chock-full of big movies, but the biggest has been saved for last. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens red carpet premiere is set to take place tonight in Los Angeles and you can watch the event in the player below beginning at 5:30 p.m. PT / 8:30 p.m. ET.

In addition, Verizon customers can submit questions for the cast and crew on Twitter using the hashtag #TheRedCarpetAwakens. Stars of the new film will answer select questions during the live broadcast.

Verizon will also provide livestream viewers with something extra: the opportunity to switch between four unique video streams, giving fans the ability to watch all the excitement however they choose. The four video streams include:

  • A “director’s cut” angle that will display the fully produced show, inclusive of angles from all cameras
  • One camera at the entrance to the red carpet, showing talent as they arrive and greet fans
  • A fashion camera that will capture talent posing for photographers
  • A camera positioned on a tower, providing a high-angle view of the stars as they make their way down the red carpet

Opening in theaters on December 18, 2015, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and features a new generation of swashbuckling heroes and shadowy villains, as well as the return of fan-favorite smugglers, princesses, and Jedi.

Abrams, the highly-anticipated movie stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Max Von Sydow. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk are producing with Tommy Harper and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt.
