While Lucasfilm may not have released Rogue One in its entirety for critics just yet, they did screen 28 minutes of the upcoming film for an exclusive audience. Luckily, their reactions were allowed to make their way onto social media, so we’ve gathered them together here so that you might get an idea of just how this film is being received.
So far, things are looking quite positive, especially concerning Rogue One‘s action, the scope, the emotional beats, and a special crowd-pleasing performance from Alan Tudyk‘s newly introduced droid, K-2SO. There will be early reviews next week when they become available, but for now, these encouraging reactions have me feeling optimistic.
Gareth Edwards‘ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stars Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Alan Tudyk, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker and arrives in theaters on December 16th.
