Don’t expect to drive down Hollywood Boulevard near Vine St. anytime within the near future — unless, of course, you’re in a spaceship.

In anticipation for the “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” premiere on Saturday at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, an X-wing starfighter has been spotted near the entrance of the venue.

Major road closures on Hollywood Boulevard between Ivar Ave. and Vine St., as well as between Vine and Argyle Ave. have ensued due to the spaceship’s landing and the premiere. Here’s a full list of closures from the Hollywood Property Owners Alliance. The starfighter has also caused a major splash on social media, as Star Wars fans jostle to catch a glimpse of the model.

“So, there’s an X-wing in Hollywood. No big deal. #StarWars#RogueOne#XWing,” @GordonTarpley tweeted.

“There’s an X-Wing on Hollywood Blvd for ROGUE ONE premiere. This is the best photo I could get,” another onlooker noted.

“They are gearing up for the #rogueone premiere here in Hollywood with an X-Wing on #hollywoodblvd – ahhh!! #starwars,” another wrote.

“Full size X-Wing unveiled on #Hollywood Boulevard in readiness for the #RogueOne premiere on Saturday.”
