We already knew that Alan Tudyk’s new Star Wars droid gives zero shits when it comes to carrying his allies’ equipment. Turns out he somehow cares even less when it comes to handling high-grade explosives.

The new trailer, introduced by Disney’s Bob Iger during the Disney Holiday Celebration last night, has got a few snippets we’ve seen in recent international teasers for the film, but quite a few (albeit brief) new shots as well:

The absolute highlight, though, is the deadpan K-2SO—especially the moment he casually interrupts a Stormtrooper’s grenade toss, only throw the device back at an oncoming squad in one single, fluid movement. Lovely stuff.

Rogue One hits cinemas December 15th.
