Updated: December 19, 2019 10:27 PM

"Stars Wars" fans were out in full force on Thursday.

"The Rise of Skywalker" premiered Thursday night and is the final film in the nine-part saga.


Some fans came to Marcus Theaters in Oakdale from as far away as Oklahoma to watch all of them in a row.

"It was pretty good. I was in tears at some points, so it was great, it was worth the drive," said Kohl Stevison, who watched all nine of the movies a row.

"When I saw this being advertised, I told my wife and she said, 'Go ahead, go for it.' What can I say? I married a great lady," added Erik Carlson, who also watched all nine of the shows in a row.

The "Star Wars" marathon took 24 hours.
