We’re just a few days away now from the arrival of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” in theaters everywhere, and that means the hype meter is already off the charts. And with the world premiere taking place Monday night in Hollywood, we’ve now got a whole bunch of people who have actually seen the thing.

And, of course, a lot of those people tweeted their reactions as soon as they got out of the theater. And, well, those reactions are mostly what you’d expect from people attending the premiere of a new “Star Wars” movie. For the most part, the responses are very positive, though some are less positive than others.

The reactions thus far have come in two main flavors: folks voicing overwhelmingly effusive praise for the film, and folks who say that the movie is a whole lot and they’re gonna have to think about it. It’s not extremely surprising that we’d get those types of responses at the premiere — it’s unlikely that anyone at the premiere would straight up trash the movie, so this is the range I personally expected.

We want to reiterate here that there are no spoilers in the tweets below — unless you consider “I liked it” or “I’m not sure how I feel” to constitute plot and story details. Now let’s get into it.

If all these tweets are getting you wound up with anticipation, don’t worry. “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” hits theaters on Thursday evening.
