Still, he's all prepped to be blown away, sharing in a Facebook post that he managed to convince himself he was Boba Fett at a young age. The Rock said "Been using the Force like twice a month since I was 8. Convinced myself I was Boba Fett at 10. This franchise has brought me back to being a kid again. Though admittedly, a part of my brain is forever a teenager. Thank you filmmakers & actors. Bring on #RogueOne (insert big, brown, bald tattooed Jedi emoji)."
Hopefully, fans will get to see The Rock's reaction soon, but so far the film has enjoyed an 84% Certified Fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes, with an audience score of 89%, so things are trending in the right direction.
