We're just three days away from the worldwide release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and there's already been an awakening in the Force. That's because Rian Johnson's new Star Wars movie hosted its stupendous world premiere in Los Angeles on Sunday – here's a couple of shots giving you a sense of what went down.
The premiere has also prompted critics to tweet their initial responses to the movie – early reactions indicate a truly wondrous addition to the burgeoning Star Wars universe. In fact, according to some, it may be the equal to series highpoint, The Empire Strikes Back...
#TheLastJedi is absolutely fantastic - gripping, touching, funny and powerful w/ gorgeous shots and the most badass battles. When it gets going, holy crap does it get going. Hands down the best #StarWars movie since Empire pic.twitter.com/nWWAhlNMJo— ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) December 10, 2017
There’s a scene in #StarWars #TheLastJedi that I keep playing over and over in my head, that is so stunning and unexpected that I don’t want to forget how I felt seeing it for the first time. This movie feels unlike any other Star Wars movie in all the ways I hoped. pic.twitter.com/zlDW4yOjp2— Terri Schwartz (@Terri_Schwartz) December 10, 2017
#StarWars: The Last Jedi is so beautifully human, populist, funny, and surprising. I cried when one POC heroine got her moment because films like these leave their mark on entire generations -- and representation matters— jen yamato (@jenyamato) December 10, 2017
The Last Jedi is incredible. Character at the forefront, amazing action and so so so much emotional payoff decades in the making. I will be watching this one a lot. pic.twitter.com/KVOjLhwk27— Eric Vespe (@EricVespe) December 10, 2017
Whoa #TheLastJedi!. Filled with epic space battles and gorgeous cinematography. It satisfied my love for Star Wars in so many ways. I can't wait to see it again. Also heading to the store to buy Porgs merch. Thank you @rianjohnson— Wendy Lee Szany (@WendyLeeSzany) December 10, 2017
