Rogue One: A Star Wars Story won’t make it’s public debut until this Thursday, but reactions from the premiere are rolling in on Twitter, and it’s been almost entirely praise. One person compared the feeling they got watching Rogue One to their first time seeing Star Wars in 1977. And another marked it as their third favorite Star Wars film. But is it all too good to be true? As one person put it, “Drop the ‘why’ and embrace the ‘wow.'”

Set before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, Rogue One tells the story of Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) who has been “recruited” by the Rebel Alliance to help steal the plans for the Death Star. She and a team of rebel fighters must infiltrate the the dreaded Empire and find a way to return home safely with the plans. Fans of the franchise should recognize familiar faces from across the entire Star Wars universe – past, present, and future; film and television.

Here are some of the reactions from the Twitterverse:

Kyle Buchanan is a senior editor with Vulture, and his Tweet seems to have the most insight as it criticizes actual elements of the movie. Still, as “negative” as his comments seem, the movie has made an impact with it’s audience. When it premiered, The Force Awakens moved it’s way into the top of many people’s Star Wars lists as a top three movie. However, it seems that Rogue One will be pushing that film out and taking it’s seat as one of the best Star Wars films of all time.
