Felicity Jones shows off her dynamic array of action moves in the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story!
A stand-alone story set in the Star Wars universe, the film centers on a group of rebel spies who set out on a mission to steal the plans for a well-known galactic superweapon you may have heard of called the Death Star.
The rebels are led by Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso, a certified troublemaker with a litany of past indiscretions.
“Forgery of imperial documents. Possession of stolen property. Aggravated assault. Resisting arrest,” an unknown voice says regarding Erso’s past in the teaser. “On your own from the age of fifteen. Reckless, aggressive, and undisciplined.”
Jones’ aggressive side is on full display in the new trailer as she effortlessly dismantles a coterie of Storm Troopers.
“This is a rebellion isn’t it? I rebel.”
The major takeaway from the Rogue One teaser is that Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso is not someone to be trifled with. We’re looking in your direction, Galactic Empire.
Now, pardon us while we go watch the clip again and again…and again.
Also starring Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, and Donnie Yen, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives in theaters on December 16, 2016. What do you think of the first preview?
