ASHWAUBENON (WLUK) -- Thursday was opening night for the newest Star Wars movie.

In Ashwaubenon, movie-goers of all ages were dressed to impress in their best costumes in honor of the night.

And in Appleton, R2-D2 greeted visitors and posed for photos.

Fan, Richard Sehadwald, says he has attended every Star Wars movie opening ever, "It's a family tradition. This is my daughter but even out in New Jersey my other daughter is going tonight, my son's and their family, they're all going, so it's a family tradition to all go to Star Wars movies."

This is the eighth movie in the Star Wars franchise.

The ninth is in the works and set to be released in winter of 2019.
