‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ brings together ‘family’ of fans
LOS ANGELES — Don’t call them Star Wars fans, call them a Star Wars family.
Carrying light sabers, foldable chairs, tents and endless amounts of snacks, over one hundred people began lining up as early as 12 p.m. on Saturday for “Star Wars: The Line Awakens,” a tradition through LiningUp.net.
The 12-day event entails standing, sitting and hanging out in line ahead of the film’s opening night at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. LiningUp also teamed up with Starlight Children’s Foundation to raise money for the charity that helps ill children and teenagers.
