Twitter has gone crazy over the Star Wars premiere

Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiered in the US yesterday and, of course, Twitter is full of reaction to the hotly anticipated sequel.

The premiere seems to have been just as exciting as you might expect, and opened with this line of Storm Troopers led by Darth Vader marching into the theatre.

It also featured a rather pleased-looking Joseph Gordon-Levitt who turned up as Yoda.

So what did people think of the film? Overall it seems fans are pretty happy, with Twitter showcasing a range of emotion including everything from uninhibited glee to stoic acknowledgment of the film as worthy of the Star Wars name.

Take a look at these tweets and see how excited fans were to see the Force finally awaken.
