So what did people think of Star Wars: The Force Awakens? I tweeted the following after the screening:

The Force Awakens is everything we want from a Star Wars movie. The film brought me to tears multiple times.

I talked to many people at the premiere party after the screening, and while some people were hesitant to make a definitive reaction after only one viewing, I did not talk to anyone who didn’t like the movie.

One thing was very clear from everyone I encountered: Star Wars is back and everyone seems to be excited about the future of the franchise.
