The premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story takes place on Thursday night.

The Millennium Falcon exists in a galaxy far, far away. It is also currently blocking traffic in LA.

The world premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the long awaited Han Solo, er, solo movie, takes place Thursday night on Hollywood Boulevard, and Solo’s iconic spaceship is being recreated as part of the red carpet. It is not finished yet, but the sight of the Millennium Falcon being construction is too much for some fans, and photos are appearing on social media.

Here’s video of it being put together.

It is also playing havoc with traffic, blocking people from getting home.

The premiere is so big it is taking place across three legendary Hollywood theatres – the El Capitan, the Dolby, and TCL Chinese.

Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Donald Glover, Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke, and the stars will be stepping onto the red carpet ahead of the film’s first screening.
