While he missed his chance to shake hands with Han Solo, he did get a special treat when it came time to see Rogue One.

“I went to an early screening so it was pretty cool that I was one of the first kids to see the Star Wars movie,” he says.

And when asked if he ever gets emotional while watching the films, Tremblay says he “doesn’t really cry” because he’s “really a manly-man.”
