If you count yourself as a Star Wars fan and you don't have your tickets to Solo: A Star Wars Story, you might want to get a move on, because it appears as if Disney and Lucasfilm have another winner on their hands. The first screening of the film took place last night, and with it came early reactions that praise not only the film as a whole, but also its cast.

The general consensus from most reactions so far seem to be that the film is an exciting Star Wars adventure, featuring a pitch-perfect performance by leading man Alden Ehrenreich and co-star Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.

Here are some, but certainly not all, of the reactions from the screening.

These comments might come as a relief to some, who were worried that the troubled production of the film might lead to a less-than-stellar final product. By all accounts, it seems like we have every reason to be excited for Solo: A Star Wars Story.
