Star Wars: The Last Jedi Premiere

The week of the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi was nuts (in a good way). I did four troops between two theaters in three days. Whew!

Thursday, December 14th: Plymouth Grand 15

I love doing events at this theater – the employees are all so incredibly nice! I went as Poe, and brought my BB-8 Hero Droid with me to see how he’d do at events. He was unruly (in true sassy droid fashion) but people seemed to like him.

Costumers: Lindsey Rae, Dylan Scherer, Jeff Allen, Kris Heding, Anna Sawyer, and Jeffrey Knotz.

There was a local reporter there interviewing us and some of the theater staff. Here’s the video clip:

After the troop, we watched the movie and I had ALL OF THE FEELINGS. As you’d expect.

Friday, December 15th: Plymouth Grand 15

We had a huge group for this one, and it was awesome! We had a ton of fun, took some silly photos, and had a great time. (All photos below were taken by Madeline Anderson, and a couple were taken with my phone.)

First Order Colonel and General Hux take a much-needed break to indulge in tasty ICEEs. Unfortunately, Hux got a huge brain freeze. (Costumers: Sara Rae and Kris Heding.)

Join the First Order! We have droids (and we try to steal some from the Resistance.) (Costumers: Jordan West, Kris Heding, and Sara Rae.)

Saturday, December 16th: AMC Southdale

The Boy Scouts of America rented theaters in four locations throughout the Twin Cities on Saturday morning, and a handful of people trooped at each location. We got to see the movie with them after our troop, too.

I brought BB-8 along again, and he was much better behaved than he was on Thursday.

Second troop of the day! I switched to General Hux and we had another great turnout for our troop.
