"FANTASTIC. It feels like Star Wars" - all the spoiler-free reactions from the Rogue One premiere

Star Wars: Rogue One had its fancy Hollywood premiere last night, complete with X-Wings and Stormtroopers on the red carpet. 

That means we get some early reactions to the first spin-off movie in the Star Wars universe. These are all spoiler-free but so far people seem to be extremely happy with the movie. There's plenty of praise for its action, emotion, relationships, plus its authenticity to the originals and war movie feel. 

And if Wil Wheaton says it's good. It's good. 

Directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, and Mads Mikkelsen, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released in the UK on December 15 and the US on December 16.
