A new behind-the-scenes featurette for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been released, and it offers up a look at some of the physical training that Daisy Ridley and the rest of the cast went through to prepare for the film’s action sequences. It heavily focuses on Ridley, who can be seen training with both a bo staff and a practice lightsaber. The film’s fight choreographer offers up his admiration for Daisy’s ability to learn her sword fights quickly and efficiently, and I might add that she does look like a badass twirling her dummy saber around.

The spot also touches on a few other characters such as John Boyega’s Finn and Adam Driver’s Kylo. Ms. Christie even makes an appearance while she trains as Phasma for the film. While you don’t get any new looks at the movie itself, it’s still cool to see behind the curation of its production, so head on down below to check out the video featurette.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15, 2017.
