the wait finally over. Fans flocking to theaters overnight and early this morning to see "Star wars: The force awakens." Among them, T.J. Holmes. He's at a theater down the block from us. Good morning, T.J. Good morning, and what's better than with your eggs and bacon in the morning than a little "Star wars." It played all night playing all morning, yes, 2 A.M. Show, 5 A.M. Show, 7 A.M. Shows. You cannot miss this movie, I got my fan, I got my stormtroopers. Everybody is good to go but what did people think last night. Some of the first to get in line, check them out. ? it's finally here, the wait is over. ? I told my mom all I wanted for Christmas was for the "Star wars" to begin. I'll like die when I watch this movie. Reporter: They're coming out in full force to see the newest installment of "Star wars." We wanted him to be princess Leia. He refused. Reporter: Even a wedding in line in L.A. Theaters everywhere are prepping for the huge onslaught of faithful fan, some venues adding extra security. Clearly, one of the biggest nights in moviegoing history and we'll be ready for it across the board. Nothing will stand in our way. Reporter: Fandango breaks an all-time record, most ticket sales on their site ever. Even before opening night. It's true, all of it. Reporter: So what's the verdict? The force has awakened. It was amazing. It feels totally true to the old films. Oh, it was an emotional roller coaster. It redeemed the prequels entirely, thank god. I have spent the last almost 20 hours watching the past six movies and I can't believe that after that all that I was not prepared for it. I have to go back and watch it again and then again and then again. And, Lara, I must admit since the time I was a little boy this is the money shot I have been waiting for my entire life. He's got his game face on. I have to tell people -- yes, it was crazy last night. It was crazy last night and a lot of places were sold out but a lot of people think, well, I can't get tickets. There are millions of tickets still available to see the show this weekend. A lot saying they're coming back twice. Even some folks I talked to last night had never seen any of the previous six movies but they wanted to see this to be a part of the cultural experience and that's exactly what it was last night. That's awesome. That's great. We also, T.J., have some pictures of very young fans, check out this one. Ah. I love that. That's from Facebook founder mark Zuckerberg with his newborn dressed up -- what's he dressed as. That's obi-wan kenobi. She. She looks like a slightly annoyed version of obi-wan kenobi, I would say. I wonder why. I know you have a photo, a video for us. I have a video of my son Alexander in the bathtub. Don't worry. This is not pornographic chewing on "Star wars" toys we gave him. Yoda, I gave him c3po and put the droid's head in his mouth. I warned him that might adversely make it malfunction. He ignored me. You're a nerd on the "Star wars" stuff. I'm a nerd on a lot of stuff. It came out when I was 6 or 7 and had a little brother. She used to bring us in the middle of the movie and leave us until we stopped caring. The answer is yes to my question. Yeah.
