And that love for a galaxy far, far away runs deep.
Mark Tuttle and Bailey Tuttle said their whole family is in love with Star Wars.
"Runs in the family. I actually met my wife at a Star Wars convention in 1999. This is my daughter. Our whole family is big into star wars. Yup," said Mark Tuttle.
But it's especially special for a local high school teacher.
Keith Opstad, an art teacher at Westview High School in Rancho Penasquitos, attended the premiere in his best Jedi garb.
"Oh this old thing? Yeah, it's just a little something I pulled out for the spirit," Opstad said. The teacher made sure to celebrate the occasion according, especially because of his connection to one of the film's stars, Kelly Marie Tran.
