Star Wars: The Force Awakens reactions from #EWStarWars users

Posted on


While fans flocked to theaters this weekend to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, EW asked readers to post their reactions to the highly anctipated film on social media using the hashtag #EWStarWars. So, what did people think of the film?

The spoiler-free responses were overwhelmingly positive. “I love you, J.J.,” said one Instagram user in a video, while another called it “the best movie in the history of the franchise.” 

Perhaps the best and most adorable is also one of the more spoiler-heavy reactions. A young Star Wars fan loved Rey (Daisy Ridley) and her special trick. If you haven’t seen The Force Awakens, watch his video response at your own risk, though it’s too adobrale for words.
