Last night, Riz Ahmed who plays Bodhi Rook, an Imperial Cargo pilot turned rebel in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. After telling a hilarious story of how he turned into a psycho during the audition process, The Tonight show premiered a new clip from the new Star Wars standalone feature. The clip offers an extended look at a scene glimpsed in the trailers featuring the Rogue One crew getting their callsign. In the trailers, the scene has been shown as a dramatic moment but it seems the film has gone with an alternate take, offering up some levity in the midst of intense drama.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters December 16th.
The film stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikkelson, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker. Written by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy. Directed by Gareth Edwards.
