Check Out Early Reactions to Star War: The Last Jedi!

Posted 2017/12/10 0 0

So far it seems The Last Jedi is faring well with critics.


Following the world premiere, attended Mark Hamill, Rian Johnson, Daisy Ridley, and other Star Wars alumni, journalists were permitted to Tweet brief social media reactions to the movie. Full reviews won't be up for a few more days, but critics fresh out of the cinemas are offering their two cents, and we've gathered them up for you.

The film, Episode VIII in the sci-fi series, reunites the protagonists of Episode VII's The Force Awakens: reformed Stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) and Jedi-in-training Rey (Daisy Ridley), as well as their adversary, the menacing Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). Written and directed by Rian Johnson (best known for his 2005 debut, the neo-noir drama Brick), the film introduces several new characters to the Star Wars universe, including a pair of Resistance fighters played by Kelly Marie Tran and Laura Dern, as well as an as-yet-unnamed villain played by Benicio Del Toro.

It remains to be seen whether reviews will match up to the early hype, but fans will soon be able to make up their own minds: The Last Jedi is released in the United States on December 15, 2017.
