I don’t know if you guys heard but there was the world premiere for a little film called The Last Jedi. And since it goes worldwide this week we are going to be spoiler-free for the recap today. SpoiledBlueMilk isn’t spoiling things?… shocking I know.
Reactions from the Premiere
The LA Times has a great recap as well as io9. It seems like it was overwhelmingly positive and I am more excited than I was for The Force Awakens. One thing that stood out to us is a lot of people say to stay away from spoilers. Here are a few sharing this sentiment:
I woke up not believing #TheLastJedi is actually a movie that exists.
Seriously… be careful, log off and avoid spoilers.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is so very different, exciting, surprising. So many emotions, so many amazing moments. Stay away from spoilers.

Although he wasn’t in the film, Peter Mayhew was at the premiere and had some kind words about his experience with Star Wars, calls it his family:

It was a night full of emotion. Kelly Marie Tran, who was recently featured in Rolling Stone, was caught up in the emotion and is clearly so happy to be part of the Star Wars family.

Tribute to Carrie Fisher
According to Variety there is a touching tribute to Carrie. Understated but appropriate, I love it.
