There has been an awakening in The Force.
Kylo Ren does not mess around.
This pair of lovebirds looked all grown up in their costumes from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
Temptation to join the Dark Side was everywhere.
Steampunk Darth Vader looked particularly grumpy sitting under the hot San Diego sun.
The weather didn't bother these Tusken Raiders, more commonly known as sand people.
But where there is Darkness, there is Light.
These glam Chewbacca cosplayers made their costumes out of wig hair. They look ready to party.
These Twi'lek costumes are also handmade. The woman on the left created a whole backstory for her original character.
Disney cosplayers came in full force this year. We spotted Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps from "Zootopia."
There was Sadness.
A pint-sized "Tinker-Fett," which is Tinkerbell meets Boba Fett, was as cute as she was sassy.
While Captain Hook was nowhere to be found, we did stumble upon one silly pirate by the name of Jack Sparrow.
Where would Disney be without its princesses? Cinderella gets a makeover from her Fairy Godmother.
This Snow White family really packed on the "charm."
Our heroines better watch out. Maleficent is lurking nearby.
And she brought some friends, including Mother Gothel ("Tangled") and the Queen of Hearts.
Chef Louis from "The Little Mermaid" finally had his way with Sebastian.
Fortunately, Kim Possible is just a call away.
Vanellope von Schweetz, the unexpected hero of "Wreck It Ralph," also speeds into action. This foam candy car weighed about 30 pounds.
The staff of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry flew in for the occasion.
The entire Marvel universe showed up in style.
We saw superheroes old and new. Tony Stark looked slick as ever.
While Doctor Strange, whose movie releases this November, dressed a little less inconspicuous.
Black Panther, heir to the African kingdom of Wakanda, is also getting his own movie. It hits theaters in 2018.
These Thor cosplayers carried their mythical hammers with ease.
They were only outdone by McThor, who wielded a box made of a Happy Meal container.
Emma Frost and Iceman, members of the X-Men, kept cool in the convention center.
Scarlet Witch looked mighty feisty.
The Falcon and Captain America keeps the gang in line.
Gotta catch 'em all, gotta catch 'em all!
We only wish there was a photo of those Captain Americas prom-posing with these Peggy Carters (plus one Sharon Carter).
Thankfully, there were enough Caps to cover two Winter Soldiers.
The Avengers can count on Boba Fett for backup.
As we saw in "Captain America: Civil War," Spider-Man is eager to join the Avengers.
He gets by with a little help from his friends, including Spider-Gwen.
Looks like "Suicide Squad" member Harley Quinn has her sights set on squashing Spidey.
Here we see Harley "joking around" with her Joker-themed Batman.
Why so serious, presidential nominee Joke-Trump?
This Deadshot cosplayer bears a striking resemblance to Will Smith, the actor who plays him in the upcoming "Suicide Squad" movie.
Comic-Con brought a slew of new movie trailers, including one for the princess of the Amazons, Wonder Woman.
It appears we haven't seen the last of Superman, despite him missing from the "Justice League" trailer.
It wouldn't be Comic-Con without a little love for gaming, as well. Link and Princess Zelda stuck together on the showroom floor.
Legion from "Mass Effect" was shot and has the hole to prove it.
The cosplayer uses a LED screen and a back-up camera to create the illusion of being able to see right through him.
Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man shared a kiss on the streets of San Diego.
Ash Stormrider combines Pokémon GO and "Game of Thrones" in one epic cosplay. Three Charizards perch on his shoulders and head.
Ash also carried around a box of Pokémon balls, inspired by Daenerys' dragon eggs.
Later in the week, we found one of Dany's eggs hatched into a dragon. The cosplayer could puppet the creature using a small rod in her hand.
This Khaleesi blew us away by how much she resembles actress Emilia Clarke.
We hope to see Dany and Cersei duke it out to become Queen of the Seven Kingdoms on season seven of "Game of Thrones." No shame.
There weren't nearly as many Starks in cosplay as members of House Lannister and Targaryen. But we did spot Robb walking around with his direwolf's head.
Melisandre looked hauntingly beautiful in red.
These fans dressed as Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen actually got engaged in front of a "Game of Thrones" cosplay meet-up.
Family is everything for this Wun Wun and his little lady.
RIP Wun Wun.
