‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ First Reactions Are Highly Positive: ‘It Will Shatter You — and Then Make You Whole Again’
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” had its long-awaited premiere last night in Los Angeles, and early word is highly positive for Rian Johnson’s contribution to the space-opera franchise. Formal reviews won’t be published for another few days, but praise like “so beautifully human, populist, funny, and surprising,” “spectacular and unpredictable,” and especially “SPACE DERN” indicate that they’ll be similarly enthusiastic.

#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
