‘Rogue One’ Star Felicity Jones Rallies The Troops In New SNL Promo

Rogue One A Star Wars Story

As Rogue One: A Star Wars Story continues to enjoy box office success, star Felicity Jones is preparing for her hosting duties on Saturday Night Live. Now, a new promo for the next installment of the classic comedy variety show features Jones as she rehearses with the help of some familiar Star Wars troops.

The promo features Jones practicing her opening monologue, hoping to receive some input from her audience of stormtroopers. When their feedback is less than helpful, Jones replies, “Thanks, guys, you’re a real bunch of troopers.”

Before you groan, Jones appears to realize the joke is too easy, concluding the promo by saying, “Maybe we lose that one.” You can check out the promo below!

You can watch Felicity Jones host Saturday Night Live on January 14, 2017.
