Yeah, you read that right. Astronauts will be able to watch the next Star Wars movie in space, on the International Space Station.

The film is set to be projected on a movie screen in orbit, after having its European premiere in London on Tuesday. With spoilers abound everywhere, it’s probably a good thing they’re reaching as many people as possible. Imagine the annoyance of coming home after months in space, only to find out that Rey is Finn’s mother and Luke is just a ghost.

I’m kidding that’s not a thing.

The hype around the movie has been immense. Critics have said this is the best Star Wars ever made, with five-star ratings coming at the film from all angles. Similarly, spoilers are coming at us from all angles.

The Telegraph described the movie as ‘enormous fun’ and ‘will leave fans beaming with surprise’. The Guardian called it ‘an explosive sugar rush of spectacle’ following the previous movie with a ‘tidal wave of energy and emotion’.

Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren has been singled out by USA Today, who described him as ‘blockbuster cinema’s most magnetic and unpredictable antagonist since Heath Ledger’s Joker’.

NASA are reportedly planning to get the film into outer space so the astronauts aboard the ISS don’t miss out.

Spaceflight reporter Bobin Seemangal tweet the news saying:

‘I received confirmation from Disney and NASA sources that the crew aboard the International Space Station will be screening Star Wars: The Last Jedi.’

Stay tuned for our review, probably coming Monday.

So excited.
