Fans were able to get their first glimpse of The Last Jedi at the premiere last night and they shared their initial reaction on social media. We had "boots on the ground" for the event and will post a review on the 12th per the embargo. For now, here are some examples of the fan reaction in general.
UPDATE: Quick text I bounced with Ryan this morning once he woke up:
Atmosphere was crazy. There was no separation between celebs and media so at any moment you could run into Mark Hamill or Bob Iger. The after party was Canto Bight themed and it was awesome. The sound and screen were incredible. Seeing it with all those people felt like we were watching a sporting event. The movie is batsh*t crazy. It's like George Lucas on steroids. Rian breaks a ton of rules and does a ton of stuff that star wars has never done. There's a little too much humor for me. But I was on the edge of my seat and it's truly shocking Sometimes it's so shocking you're trying to figure it all out. There is a lot packed into those 2 and a half hours!
You all have no idea what you're about to see. The saga has truly changed forever #TheLastJedi— The ForceCast (@ForcecastNet) December 10, 2017
Guys. @rianjohnson has made the most epic, emotionally powerful @starwars film ever. Hands down. My strong advice is to be very wary of spoilers. The less you know about #TheLastJedi, the better. Bravo, bravo, bravo.— Clayton Sandell (@Clayton_Sandell) December 10, 2017
#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

Rian Johnson has created something no one else ever has in the #StarWars universe. I was floored. Funny, engaging, wild, surprising. Stay away from spoilers.
Better than Empire.
