With only days away until the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in theatres, social media reactions to the film have been trickling in after its world premiere in Los Angeles.
While the film had several production issues which included reports of reshoots and a change of tone mid-way through filming, the verdict has been insanely positive, giving us a new hope for the upcoming line of spin-off films for the franchise.
Here are some early reactions to Rogue One.
It took me a while to get out from under my own ideas of what #RogueOne could be. But it's the Star Wars movie you never knew you wanted.

Star Wars fans will be very happy with #RogueOne. It's fun, action packed, doesn't feel neutered by reshoots. Donnie Yen and K2so standouts.

#RogueOne is pretty much everything I was hoping for & then some. So moving/satisfying for so many reasons. Already dying for a 2nd viewing.
