Star Wars: The Acolyte Social Media Reactions Are Fairly Positive – Nothing New With Overly Positive Reactions?

Some Star Wars potential SPOILERS folks, as The Acolyte twins rumor has been confirmed officially by lead star Amandla Stenberg.

Been checking out some of the Star Wars: The Acolyte social media reactions and they are fairly positive, however it’s nothing new to get overly positive reactions at this stage. So the question remains can we ever trust these social media reactions from creators, or press who are invited to watch early? The review embargo is only just before the show releases which could go any way.

This would not be the first time that a show or movie has all positive reactions and then the reviews come in and slate it. I’m not saying that will happen here and I hope it does not. I actually think The Acolyte looks good, but I will of course reserve judgement till we see it. LRM will be reviewing it on The Cantina which will return for this. I’ll try to join Cam and Kyle when I can.

Still, I’m not going to blindly trust these reactions. Have a look at a small selection below.

I’ll start with one that was not all positive for some balance.

Still not a bad reaction though?

Here is what Slash Film‘s Peter Sciretta thought.

It is worth noting that some of these journos; or content creators have seen two episodes and some seem to have seen four.

If you recall, the original pitch for The Acolyte by showrunner Leslye Headland was said to be Frozen meets Kill Bill. Well here’s one reviewer saying they can see the Kill Bill influences.

Of course there are literally hundreds of these on social media now and this was just a small selection of their thoughts. However, the general response as said in the title is positive so far. Yet, I’ll wait for the actual reviews to hit saying it’s great before I get too hyped.

What do you think of these positive Star Wars: The Acolyte social media reactions? Do you trust them at all, or do you think the reviews will tell the real story? Let us know.
