At this very moment, "Rogue One" star Diego Luna has to be the envy of every "Star Wars" fan -- especially those who grew up with the original 1977 film. Luna not only gets to be a part of cinematic history but he also has been given the chance to live out the quintessential geek-boy fantasy: to beat up a Stormtrooper. Now, how freakin' cool is that?
In this new "Rogue One" featurette, the Mexican actor, who stars alongside Felicity Jones as rebel officer Cassian Andor, offers his unique insight into what fans can expect from him when the hotly-anticipated standalone movie opens in a couple of weeks.
"We're doing battles. We're running and chasing. We are just living the experience," Luna reveals in the above clip. "You know, it's a true adventure. And we are here enjoying the ride ... in a galaxy far far away."
"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" opens everywhere December 16.
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
