The First Reactions to THE LAST JEDI Are Amazing

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Rey began her training with Luke Skywalker on Ahch-To, but that story was only shared with this planet for the first time Saturday night at the world premiere of The Last Jedi in Los Angeles. And while the lucky folks in attendance are sworn to secrecy about the film’s plot and twists (and for that we thank you all), they were allowed to share their general reactions to the film. So does it sound like it lives up the impossible hype that accompanies any new Star Wars film?

Yes, and then some.

Because so many of those who saw it kept saying the same thing: it’s unlike anything else we’ve seen from the franchise before.

Uh, okay, let’s all just take a quick moment to follow Luke’s advice from the trailers and “breathe.”

Were all of the reactions that good? No, but even the rare “criticisms” weren’t really all that bad.

It also sounds like Mark Hamill’s recent comments that Luke’s ominous line about how this won’t end well was the movie’s most important.

Members of team Nerdist were in the audience too, so what did they have to say? Our Editor-in-Chief Rachel Heine has some very exciting/scary advice.

An amazing new Star Wars movie AND a perfect reason to avoid social media for a week? The Last Jedi really does sound special.

But what’s your reaction to these reactions? Are your more or less excited to see the movie now? Hit the hyperdrive on your thoughts in the comments below.
