The first (spoiler free) reactions to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are in
There's just a few days util the saga comes to an end.
But the first reviews of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are in - and they're looking pretty good.
Critics have been calling J.J. Abrams' final chapter of the Skyawalker saga "satisfying", "epic" and "the ending Star Wars deserves".
Although, some have said they felt it was overly complicated and "bogged down" at parts.

STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER is certainly the most convoluted Star Wars. There is a lot I liked, but the first half gets so bogged down with exposition and new plot and doodads and beacons and transmitters, it feels like it should have been three movies on its own.

#StarWars #TheRiseOfSkywalker...OH MY GOD! I am absolutely blown away! I’ve never been so satisfied by a film. This is the end of an era and a franchise that has defined my life and this did it justice in a way I didn’t imagine it could. You WILL cry.... pic.twitter.com/Jfx5bzdZOO

There is good in Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker. But there is more that is disappointing. There are a number of choices that just don't track, fan service that doesn't work, and ignored details that are missed. I'm bummed. #StarWarsRiseofSkywalker pic.twitter.com/Ztk0VzGc6H

#StarWarsRiseofSkywalker reaction: JJ Abrams nailed it. He was able to bring a cohesive arc to this trilogy that feels like a fitting end to the saga as a whole. I’m so emotionally drained. Star Wars fans will be very happy.

THE RISE OF SKYWALKER is everything I wanted it to be — because there’s never been a STAR WARS movie like this before.
It’s dark and scary, but hopeful and beautiful.
It ends the trilogy while also ending the saga as a whole.
I know I’m rambling — but I worship this movie. pic.twitter.com/XoJFl8Rv8n

Review of #RiseOfSkywalker is....not coming til Wednesday. But it will be a good one! An ultimately satisfying and moving conclusion to the trio of trilogies. This is the ending Star Wars deserves
