Dublin is becoming gripped with Star Wars fever

Dublin has prepared for the latest instalment of the Star Wars saga by transforming its spire into a gigantic lightsaber.
Dubliners have been posting photographs of the impressive looking landmark as excitement for the opening of the movie reaches fever pitch.
Meanwhile, the Irish Independent reveal that actor Domhnall Gleeson hired a cinema in Dublin so he can ‘binge watch’ all three movies in the original series in one day.
Dublin - and Domhnall Gleeson - are gripped by Star Wars fever as the spire has become a giant lightsaber
Gleeson, who admits he wasn’t a diehard fan of the movies as a child said that he needed to brush up on the story after landing a part in the latest movie
The actor who plays General Hux in The Force Awakens said: “I wasn’t a nut the way some of my friends were.
“One of the joys of the experience was going back. I asked for the original trilogy, so I could watch them on the big screen before I shot the film.”
After hiring a private screening room to watch the original movies, Gleeson seemed to have finally been won over.
He said: “It was amazing. That was one of the big joys of going through it and letting the magic seep in – then leaving it behind to do the job you’re doing.”
The rest of Dublin seem to be way ahead of him in terms of Star Wars fandom and people have been excited to see the new lightsaber on O’Connell Street.
Take a look at some of the photos that have been tweeted below.
