It is the movie fans have been clamoring for all year long and they lined up in droves to see Episode VIII of the Star Wars.
The Last Jedi is packing in fans at multi-plexes all over the country, as well as right here in Northwest Arkansas at the newly opened IMAX screen at the Malco Razorback Cinemas.
KNWA was there to take in the fanfare as well as costumes excited moviegoers wore to watch the new chapter in the space saga.
“It was a huge part of my childhood growing up; like I don’t remember a moment where Star Wars wasn’t a part of Legos, or drawing or playing with my brothers. So, super excited,” Star Wars fan Chris Dye explained.
That excitement is likely to keep area movie theaters busy for weeks to come as fans grab their popcorn for the adventure in a galaxy far, far away.
