See R2-D2 And Stormtroopers Discover The White House

They even got to meet Sunny and Bo Obama.

President Barack Obama closed his year-end press conference on Friday by noting that he -- like many of us -- had to get to a screening of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

Obama was referring to a showing of the film that he and first lady Michelle Obama hosted for military families. Before the screening, R2-D2 and some Stormtroopers took some time to explore the White House, appearing at the briefing room and meeting Sunny and Bo Obama.

See photos of their visit below:
