Star Wars Fans Tie the Knot at ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Screenings
According to a recent piece in Entertainment Weekly, two couples said “I do” at The Rise of Skywalker screenings — because there is no try!
Four Star Wars megafans tied the knot Thursday night at the opening night of the final Skywalker Saga film at ceremonies at the the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Tex.
The couples (Matt Anderegg and Mallory Walker (pictured top), and Andy Forbes and Wendee Forbes are all longtime Alamo patrons who have made it a tradition of attending the opening night of Star Wars films through the years. During an advanced screening of Rise of Skywalker, they celebrated their fandom and love for each other with special Star Wars-themed weddings in the lobby of Alamo South Lamar.
The couples marched down the aisle to a strings arrangement of John Williams’ iconic “Imperial March” and were accompanied by a wedding party of Stormtroopers, Jawas, and bounty hunters.

As the minister officiating the ceremonies said: “Love is the true Force which binds the galaxy together.” Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog for the latest Star Wars news and updates!
