One of the most highly anticipated movies of the year is without a doubt Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film is set to open in less than two weeks, and the promo machine set in a galaxy far, far away is still going roundly. You know what that means, right? Yep, we have two new exciting clips to share.

The first clip shows a scene between Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) — who’s gotten her hands on a blaster gun — and Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), as well as K-2SO (Alan Tudyk). Just like the previous promos released by Disney and Lucasfilm, the former Imperial droid totally steals the scene: “You’re letting her keep it? Would you like to know the probability of her using it against you? It’s high. It’s very high.”

In the second video below, Jyn gives a rousing speech to rally the various members of the Rebellion against the might of the Galactic Empire. But there’s one familiar face that really stands out from the crowd: Princess Leia’s adoptive father, Bail Organa (Jimmy Smits). It's great to see a character from previous Star Wars movies return to bridge Revenge of the Sith to A New Hope.

Directed by Gareth Edwards (with Tony Gilroy doing a boatload of reshoots), the movie stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker and James Earl Jones.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters on Dec. 16.
