LIVE: Jedis, Droids and Aliens Take Over: Star Wars: Rogue One Premiere 

Rogue One, the latest installment in the Star Wars series opened in theaters Thursday night.

Fans came out in full force to attend a premier party at Bangor Mall Cinemas 10.

People arrived nearly two hours early, many in costume to celebrate the films’ release.

There was even an appearance from darth vader and r2d2

“We all grew up with Star Wars to some effect. I was 8 years old when it came out so I just remember the first time I saw it. I was blown away. We were all like, “Wow! That’s the coolest thing ever!” For me, being out here with R2 and seeing the reactions when they see this thing in person… Aw man, that’s great!,” says Paul Bussiere, owner of Paul’s R2-D2.

A quartet from the Bangor Symphony Orchestra to play music from the film and promote their Music of Star Wars show, coming up in March 2017.
