A newly released featurette offers a look behind the scenes at some of the training Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, and Kelli Marie Tran did for upcoming fights and action scenes for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. As expected, it ain't easy being a Jedi. Or, you know, evil.

In a recent Good Morning America interview, Daisy talked about her new proficiency with her lightsaber, but this is a whole new level of badass.

The featurette also offers a better look at the fighting styles of each character and what sort of weapons they may be using this time around, along with how some of the glimpses we've already seen might play out:

This featurette dovetails nicely with the most recent TV promo for the film in which we see some new footage of Poe, Rey, the First Order, and some seriously fancy flying from the Millennium Falcon. The ship might be getting old, but she still zips.

The promo was introduced at Disney’s Magical Holiday Celebration by Mark Hamill and, luckily, it's made it's way online so we can all enjoy it.
