The first reactions to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have arrived, and they’re super enthusiastic. Full reviews from the December 11 premiere in Los Angeles are embargoed until December 13, but initial reactions on Twitter are full of exclamation points, emojis and all-caps.

The movie also drew comparisons to The Empire Strikes Back and The Force Awakens.

Many users also posted about the political message of Rogue One, from the inspiration offered in the rebel speeches to the diversity of its cast.

Other users found it more of a mixed bag, but still praised its visuals.

Admittedly, the audience at a premiere is usually predisposed to like the film, but these reactions have me feeling optimistic for Rogue One.
