We’re three days away from the event we’ve been waiting for since 1983. Star Wars, The Force Awakens opens in theater across the globe on December 18, and there will be scores of 501st Legion members giving fans a chance to meet Stormtroopers, Imperial Officers, Sith Lords and more.

Our own Midsouth Garrison will be out in full force from Thursday night through the weekend at several locations, including:

  • Carmike Theater, 633 Frazier Drive, Franklin, TN
  • Rocky Top 10, Crossville, TN
  • Regal Cinemas, 1949 Star Shoot Parkway, Lexington, KY
  • Carmike Cinemas, Bradley Square Mall, Cleveland, TN
  • Carmike Theater, Downtown Chattanooga, TN

Monday, December 14, 2015 was the Red Carpet Premiere of Episode VII in Los Angeles. All of our favorite Star Wars actors, young and old, walked the Red Carpet and stopped to chat with the crew from starwars.com. Here’s the video, for those that missed it.

An 11-year-old fan named Toby has been trooping alongside the ‪#‎501st‬ MidSouth Garrison for several years now, even going so far as to suit up in armor built for him by the local Blue Sun Squad so he could truly experience being part of the Legion. Toby is currently experiencing medical complications related to Mitochondrial Disease, and desperately needs your support. We’re not asking for money, just positive messages for Toby to show him that Star Wars fans everywhere are behind him. Comment, share a video message, or even send a card (contact via Tyler Phillips at tk1143@gmail.com for mailing address).

Get well soon, Toby, you’re needed at your post. Please include the hashtag ‪#‎501stTeamToby‬ to help us gather support. ‪#‎StarWars‬ ‪#‎BadGuysDoingGood‬ 501st Legion Charity
