The First Reactions to Star Wars: The Last Jedi Have Been Stellar

Star Wars: The Last Jedi had its premiere on December 9. As a result, a lot of the people who had the chance to see the movie have posted their thoughts on social media, which have provided interested individuals with plenty of fodder for speculation. So far, it is interesting to note that those thoughts have been positive by an overwhelming proportion, which is encouraging some to speculate that Star Wars: The Last Jedi could become one of the most successful movies to be ever released. Something that is perhaps unsurprising considering how well Star Wars movies tend to do at the box office.

What Have Those Who Watched Star Wars: The Last Jedi Been Saying?

Fortunately or unfortunately, there haven’t been a lot of information about the exact plot that interested individuals can expect from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There are plenty of spoilers that can be found out there on the Internet, but the problem is that most of them aren’t from reliable sources, meaning that it is difficult for interested individuals to know which spoilers to trust and which spoilers to not trust. For that matter, it should be mentioned that spoilers tend to lack sufficient context to provide proper support for the events of the narrative, meaning that what is revealed may not be a faithful reflection of the experience of watching the movie even if it is technically correct. As a result, those who are interested in spoilers should read through them with a sense of skepticism so as to not ruin the mood for themselves for no real reason.

Spoilers aside, the response to Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been positive. Something that should come as welcome news to people who have been waiting for the latest movie to come out. After all, it is not uncommon for critics and consumers to have different opinions about the same movies because they don’t share the same priorities, but this isn’t just the opinion of critics but also a lot of consumers, which should provide interested individuals with extra assurance that the movie will be great. Furthermore, it should be mentioned that this serves as encouraging news for Rian Johnson’s future efforts in the Star Wars franchise, which is rather important when he has been chosen to head a new trilogy that will be coming out at some point still much further off into the distance.

With that said, one interesting point that has come up is that some people have stated that Star Wars: The Last Jedi surprised them, which is rather curious because the Star Wars trilogies are not exactly famous for that sort of thing. After all, one of the more common complaints about its predecessor was that it was too similar to A New Hope, which prompted fear from some quarters that the latest movie would be too similar to The Empire Strikes Back. If the surprise is true, it seems that this particular fear will have been unfounded, which should come as more welcome news on top of the previous piece of information.

Regardless, interested individuals will soon be able to make their decisions based on what they see. After all, Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be having its wider release this week, meaning that it is time for them to start making plans if they want to be able to beat the inevitable sea of spoilers that will come roaring out onto the Internet.
