Star Wars villains invaded County Mall as part of a promotional event.

People took the chance to meet and take pictures with the white armoured soldiers from a galaxy far far away on Saturday (August 15).

The Stormtroopers were in the mall from 11am to 4pm to promote the Hollywood Special Effects Show, which will be shown at The Hawth theatre on September 20. It will take viewers behind the scenes of the biggest films and show how special effects are developed.

Stormtroopers have been a mainstay of the Star Wars universe since their début in 1977’s A New Hope.

Arguably the poorest marksmen in the galaxy, their next film appearance will be in the much-anticipated new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens in December.
