Felicity Jones is the leader we need in new Rogue One TV spot

(Lucasfilm)

“This is your chance to make a real difference.” 

Felicity Jones is rallying the troops as Jyn Erso in the new TV spot for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and she’s using some pretty inspiring rhetoric to fight the Empire. 

Though there’s no new footage in this 30-second preview, there’s a tone of togertherness and inciting change that jives well with Election Day on Tuesday. If you need more motivation to go out and fill out those ballots, maybe this is it. 

As the first Star Wars anthology film from Lucasfilm, Rogue One follows Jyn as she’s recruited by the Rebel Alliance to steal the plans for a massive weapon of mass destruction (i.e. the Death Star). She recruits a diverse team to execute the mission, including Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), Bodhi Rook (The Night Of’s Riz Ahmed), Chirrut Îmwe (Donnie Yen), and a reprogrammed Imperial security droid named K-2SO (Alan Tudyk). 

Also featuring are Ben Mendelsohn as Director Orson Krennic, Forest Whitaker as Clone Wars character Saw Gerrera, Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso, and the return of Darth Vader. 

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, directed by Gareth Edwards, will open in theaters Dec. 16. Watch the new spot above.
