Disney and Lucasfilm have shared a new behind-the-scenes video from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film opened in theaters to the third highest first weekend numbers of 2016, and one of the scene stealers was the prequel’s version of C-3PO. Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials) wore a motion capture suit to play the droid, and in the new video fans are treated to a look at Tudyk in action. Directed by Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards, the Star Wars prequel stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen, and Forest Whitaker.

Rogue One opened in theaters on December 15, 2016.

The Plot: 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.
