The much-anticipated movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally debuted in theaters on Thursday night, Dec. 17.
And as fans flock to theaters, the reviews coming in from those who have seen the movie are overwhelmingly positive.
“I saw it twice tonight, back to back,” fan Julio Salazar told our news partners ABC 57. “I’m seeing it Monday with my brother, in IMAX next week, and seeing it when I get back a couple of times for the spring semester.”
“It could be the best one so far,” Kelly Burgess told ABC 57.
Here are some more reviews from Michiana-area Star Wars fans posted on Twitter:
They’ve recreated the original #StarWars in an amazing and organic way, with a character 100x more likeable than Luke Skywalker ever was.

It scratched every. single. itch. It hit all the points you’d want to see in a Star Wars film. Almost trying too hard in the process.
