You aren't gonna be able to see this one for free for a while!

Tonight, Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is finally be released upon the world. I'm very excited, as should everyone else. However, if you were hoping to use a movie pass you've been holding onto, you are gonna have to wait a while.

According to Tri-State Homepage, here is what Disney had to say:

Due to restrictions from Walt Disney Corporation, Showplace Cinemas management advises moviegoers that they will not be allowed to accept Disney movie passes for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” for the first 17 days of exhibition.

Disney passes will be allowed on January 1.

The restriction is out of Showplace Cinemas' control, and is a stipulation put upon the local theater chain by the Walt Disney corporation.

Looks like you'll be paying to see this movie, at least until Jan. 1st.
