Justin Trudeau enjoys advance screening of 'Rogue One' with some very special friends

Justin Trudeau attended an advance screening of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with some very special friends on Tuesday. The prime minster was joined by young patients from Ottawa's CHEO Hospital.

"Some friends from @CHEOhospital joined me for a sneak preview today ... the verdict? #RogueOne is the best of the Star Wars prequels," wrote the father of three on Instagram, alongside a picture of himself greeting the children.


Justin is a self-professed Star Wars super fan, so much so, he and wife Sophie dressed up as Han Solo and Princess Leia to take their children, Xavier, Ella-Grace and Hadrien, trick-or-treating on Halloween last October.

Hosting a Star Wars screening has become a tradition for the 44-year-old. In December 2015, Justin welcomed CHEO Hospital patients to a private viewing of The Force Awakens.

Justin wasn't the only super fan to catch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story before it opens in theatres on Friday. Jacob Tremblay attended a screening on Wednesday wearing a pair of on-theme pajamas.

@StarWars about to watch #RogueOne in my #StarWars jammies!!! #Thisishappening!!!
