‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Is ‘Incredible’ and ‘Totally Delivers,’ According to Hollywood Stars at Premiere

The seventh installment of the franchise had its world premiere in Los Angeles on Monday night


“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” made its world premiere in Los Angeles on Monday night, and the first reviews are in — and they’re all 140 characters or less.

Among the lucky first few to see the highly anticipated sequel include actors Rob Lowe, Elizabeth Banks, Bryce Dallas Howard and Josh Gad, the latter of which echoed other positive reactions on Twitter by calling it “incredible.”

“Pitch Perfect 2” director and “Hunger Games” star Banks tweeted, “ totally delivers I repeat again just .”


“The Force Awakens” hits theaters this Friday and has had massive sell-outs for opening weekend shows.

Your most trusted film critics will be publishing their reviews when the embargo lifts at 12:01 a.m. PT on Wednesday, but until then, read significantly shorter reactions below.
