In the footage, Yen, who plays Chirrut Imwe, a blind, Force-believing martial artist, can be seen in fight scenes, standing in front of fire, and running through fight choreography with stunt actors. There are also clips of Jiang, who plays Baze Malbus, a companion of Imwe, staring at the horizon and Ahmed, who plays rebel pilot Bodhi Rook.
