This is the Star Wars movie you’re looking for. Well, that’s according to the first audience of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, who recently tweeted some very glowing reviews of the upcoming film.
But be mindful of these thoughts: if you were hosting the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, you wouldn’t invite anyone who wasn’t a super fan of the sci-fi saga, right? So, those people aren’t likely to post a snap Twitter review that slates the film series.
So, to paraphrase Admiral Ackbar, it could all be a trap. But if it’s not, we might be in for a real treat…
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is everything. Intense, funny, emotional, exciting. It’s jam-packed with absolutely jaw dropping moments and I loved it so, so much. I’m still shaking. pic.twitter.com/fHddWjo201
THE LAST JEDI: A little too long & dragged in the middle, but great fun overall! As good as The Force Awakens; Rogue One is better! More humor than expected, great #StarWars moments, #MarkHamill is awesome! A worthy Episode VIII pic.twitter.com/HHihSa788D
THE LAST JEDI has more goosebump moments than any Star Wars movie I can remember. I was grinning for most of the 2 and a half hours. A worthy and great Star Wars film. The franchise is in great hands. Kudos to @rianjohnson
Not only are Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill at their very best as Leia and Luke in this movie, but Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver blow Rey and Kylo Ren out of the park. I didn’t expect where those characters went and it’s my favorite part of the movie. #TheLastJedi
