'Star Wars': The Struggle Is Real For Fans Trying To Avoid 'The Last Jedi' Spoilers

The internet is not a good place to be a 'Star Wars' fan right now.

’Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ hasn’t even been out for a day yet, but already social media has turned into a minefield of spoilers many people are having trouble navigating.

The film has opened to largely positive reviews from critics, amassing four or five star ratings. 

HuffPost’s Charlie Lindlar branded it a “must-watch”, adding: “Whereas its predecessor was criticised by some for seeming too safe and by-the-book, ‘The Last Jedi’ dares to be much bolder and more surprising, asking us to look twice at the rules and teachings we believe about the Jedi and both the light and dark sides of the Force, as well as challenging us whether our heroes are really who they seem.”

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ is in cinemas now.
