APPLETON (WLUK) -- For some people, a new premiere is an excuse to dress up in Star Wars gear-- although, why not do that any day?

For others, a Star Wars premiere can bring back childhood memories.

"The very first premiere I ever went to was episode three. My dad and I dressed up as Jedi for the premiere. We ended up getting to meet a little Yoda, we had a giant Jedi battle," Roman Lacey said. "Coming here and seeing everything it's just so nostalgic and I'm just so excited."

While FOX 11 couldn't speak to everyone who saw the film, those we did speak to liked it.

"It wraps up the saga nicely. Me personally, the last movie could have been handled a lot better. I feel like the director did the best with what was given. I enjoyed it. I'll see it again," Ethan Kositzke from Little Chute said.

People say the film was packed with content.

"There's a lot of stuff in this movie. I mean they show a ton of stuff in this movie. It's good to see some of the old characters on there. Won't say anything else. But it was a lot of fun," David Eversen from Appleton said.

All Marcus Theater locations will offer early and late showtimes through opening week. You can purchase tickets online in advance.
