Here’s What Charlotteans Thought About The New Star Wars Movie (No Spoilers)


The 8th major Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, was just released in theaters across the country on Thursday night. It raked in a whopping $45 million in one night, making it the second highest domestic preview of all time (second only to the 7th Star Wars Movie “The Force Awakens” with $57 million in its opening night).

It’s already received raving reviews from movie critiques, with a 93% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes, and an 86% score on MetaCritic. Some critics have even gone so far to say that the last Jedi is the best in the series since 1980’s “The Empire Strikes Back,” which has been widely considered to be the best Star Wars film in the series.
