On Friday, a new clip from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was shown during a special Twitter Q&A with the cast, and now, the clip has been officially released by Lucasfilm.
The clip begins with Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), and K-2SO inside of a spaceship. They are about to take off toward Jetta, which is a war zone.
K-2SO (voiced by Alan Tudyk) asks Cassian, "Why does she get a blaster and I don't?" Cassian becomes visibly concerned, and Jyn tires to reassure him that it's okay, telling him: "I know how to use it." But for him, it's the fact that she is skilled with a blaster that he finds discomforting about her being armed.
Cassian puts out his hand and asks her to hand over the weapon, but she refuses, pointing out that she'll need it for where they are going next. He then asks where she got the weapon. She gives a vague and unconvincing response: "I found it."
After she says, "Trust goes both ways," Cassian decides to let her keep the blaster and takes his seat in the cockpit next to K-2SO. The Rebel-owned Imperial enforcer droid turns to him and asks, "Would you like to know the probability of her using it against you?" Cassian remains silent but glares at K-2SO, so it answers its own question: "It's high!"
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.
