People in Los Angeles are already lining up for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

If you're in the Los Angeles area over the next 10 days, don't be surprised to see hundreds of people already lined up for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

People have gathered outside of the historic TLC Chinese Theater in downtown Los Angeles as part of a charity event to raise money for the Starlight Children's Foundation. The lineup started on Dec. 5 and those involved in the event will stay there until The Force Awakens opens on Dec. 18.

According to the event's charity page, the goal is to raise as much money as they can for the foundation while also "recreating the classic line experience of legions of fans, lined up for days, gathering in force to celebrate the next piece of cinematic history."

Pictures of the line have started to circulate online, which you can check out here.

For those that don't want to wait in line to watch the new movie, reserved tickets can still be purchased from most major theater chain websites.
