After long, long time, the force finally awoke Monday night at the premiere for Star Wars: The Force Awakens — and the event was a who's who of heroes past and present!

Most notably in attendance was Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill — the OG trio who starred in Star Wars: A New Hope almost four decades ago!

Han, Luke, and Leia arrived at the Dolby, El Capitan, and TCL Theaters in Hollywood for the monumental premiere!

Ford had wife Calista Flockhart on his arm on the red carpet, and Fisher's plus one was her daughter Billie Lourde — though she also looked very happy to see franchise newbie John Boyega!

Hamill traded in his lightsaber for a dapper suit and a scruffy beard — is he using a Jedi mind trick, or did he become a bit of a silver fox overnight?? LOLz!

It gives us chills to see the original trio back together again!
