Abu Dhabi to get Star Wars Middle East premiere

The 'Force Awakens' to be shown ahead of general release


It's the ticket that every Star Wars fan is going to want in their hands but it won't be easy to get your mitts on.

'Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens' will get it's regional premiere at Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi on December 16, the day before it's general release in UAE cinemas and just 48 hours after the world premiere in Los Angeles.

The film will showcase The UAE's beautiful sand dunes as the desert planet 'Jakku'. Look out for an epic battle scene that was filmed in the Emirates last year.

As well as new lead characters played by John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, look out for some familiar faces in the form of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher.

It's not yet confirmed what stars will attend the invite-only event but we're expecting big names. Start planning your strategy to get a ticket right now...may the force be with you!
