Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres in NZ

From Morning Report, 8:56 am on 14 December 2017

The royal premiere of the latest Star Wars movie has been held at Lond's Royal Albert Hall forty years since the first movie that spawned one of the most successful film franchises in history. Princes William and Harry were on the red carpet, and, in a first for the Royal family, in the movie. The film hits New Zealand cinemas on Friday. But diehard fans stayed up late on Thursday for midnight screenings across the country - one of those was RNZ's Megan Whelan. She tells Guyon about the experience.
