Jyn Erso Kicks Stormtrooper Butt in First Full Rogue One Clip
We've seen trailers and TV spots from Rogue One, which showed us plenty of the Death Star construction, Darth Vader, and other familiar faces like Mon Mothma and Grand Moff Tarkin. But now, the first full clip is showing us one of the most exciting parts of the film so far: Jyn Erso being a total bad-ass.



In the clip, Jyn and Diego Luna's Cassian Andor get into a firefight with a bunch of Stormtroopers who, of course, can't aim to save their goddamn lives. Interestingly, Cassian is using a blaster while Jyn prefers to fight more directly with a baton, which makes sense, as Rogue One is clearly trying to get away from the large-scale battles of the saga films in favor of more intimate, war movie-style violence. There also seems to be a love story developing between Cassian and Jyn, but hopefully more air time will be spent on Alan Tudyk's K-2SO, who already seems like the breakout character.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16.
