First ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Reactions Hit The Internet

The first 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' reactions hit the internet after an exclusive 28-minute screening of the film at Skywalker Ranch.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story may not be hitting theaters until December 16, but early buzz has already hit the internet. Lucasfilm recently screened twenty eight minutes of the film for critics. This exclusive offer came to a select few and at least their reactions were allowed to be posted to social media boards like Twitter (there’s usually an embargo for these kinds of things).

The early reactions included a lot of praise for the way the film looks and its action. Specifically praised was Alan Tudyk as the droid K-2SO and it’s also been most definitely confirmed after this viewing that there is no opening crawl in Rogue One.

Early reviews of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story won’t be out until next week, but until then, reading the reactions below is sure to raise your excitement for the film!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a prequel to the entire franchise and will be in theaters December 16.

In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
