    I imagine most people who were familiar enough with Star Wars to recognize them did, it was the intended result.

    The theater I was in went crazy when they showed up, only surpassed by how crazy they went when Vader owned that hallway.

    I saw RO six times in the theater, with the first one being in 4DX.

    Me and buddies were in the same 4-seat section, with some middle school boys next to us.

    As soon as the rebel fleet jumps into action at the end, the excitement became almost unbearable.

    When the fighters started calling in, we got giddy.

    When Red and Gold leader both reported in, the theater exploded. It was what i think people who saw ANH felt watching it in 1977.

    Everyone in my row became 12 years old until we left the theater.

    God bless whoever thought of bringing them back for the battle. It was the perfect detail.

    Yeah I definitely geeked out when I saw that!

    Not sure about other people though since the theater was so quiet. I'm assuming everyone was just really captivated in the movie though-- so who knows.

    Gold & Red Leaders in Rogue One was definitely a WOW moment. Proof positive that Rogue One compliments A New Hope while the force awakens just lazily copied it.
