The hype for "Rogue One: A Star Wars" story is in full, well, hyperdrive. While the first standalone "Star Wars" movie won't open with the ginormous box office take of "The Force Awakens," it is tracking to haul in over $130 million in its first weekend.
As part of the marketing blitz, Lucasfilm rolled out a featurette focusing on Diego Luna's character, Captain Cassian Andor. Most of the previous trailers and teasers have revolved around lead Felicity Jones' Jyn Erso, but Andor looks to be a key figure. And he's got that dashing swagger to put him alongside Harrison Ford's Han Solo and Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron.
In the video, Luna talks about the amazing experience of filming a "Star Wars" movie. "It's challenging because one day you're doing a very emotional scene, but the next day you're beating some stormtroopers," he says. "It's fun.""Rogue One" opens in theaters December 17.
