'Star Wars' European premier kicks off in London

A galaxy of stars has walked the red carpet for the European premier of the latest 'Star Wars' installment in London on Wednesday.

Actors from the original trilogy, such as Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, have teamed up with newcomers in 'The Force Awakens', including John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver.

Known as the creator of 'Star Wars' franchise, director George Lucas says he has no regrets on handing over the reins to J.J.Abrams.

"Well, I was ready to do it. I was ready to move on. I didn't want 'Star Wars' to be the rest of my life and that's what it would have been. I wanted to make sure it got launched properly and could go on. Now maybe it'll go on for 50 or 100 years. I didn't want somebody trying to sort it out after I'm dead."

Hamill, obviously absent from the film's promotional materials and trailers, still keeps his lips zipped about his role in the upcoming installment.

"Well you have to wait and see. That's part of the mystery. But I did say, 'Let's keep it age appropriate.' I mean for God's sake, I said, 'Look, easy on the lightsaber duals, heavy on the Jedi mind tricks.' That I can do. This I can do."

'The Force Awakens' is set to be released publicly tomorrow, with box-office analysts predicting it to smash sales records.

It will open in China on January 9th.
