Disney and Lucasfilm shut down Hollywood Blvd. last night for the massive star studded red carpet world premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Reviews are embargoed until Wednesday 12:01 AM PST, but these initial reactions on Twitter following the screening tell us Star Wars is back big time.
JJ did it. #StarWarsForceAwakens

One last thing — The Force Awakens very much occupies the creative space and feel of the Original Trilogy. Wonderful continuation.
