Barcelona was transported to a galaxy far, far away this weekend, as hundreds of Star Wars characters paraded through the city centre in the ninth annual Star Wars Parade.
This year's parade took on an extra sheen of excitement coming mere weeks before the premiere of the latest film in the popular sci-fi saga Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The highly-anticipated Star Wars episode, directed by J.J Abrams, will be released in Spain on December 18th and will reunite the stars of the original series, including Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, as well as introducing a host of new, young characters.
The parade - organized by Star Wars Catalunya, a group of fans who enjoy dressing up as characters from the films - ended with a red carpet photo call, allowing members of the public to have their photographs taken with their favourite Star Wars characters.
