K-2SO rocks the new, extended 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' trailer

K-2SO is stepping up to be a force in the new Rogue One: A Stars Wars Story.

The droid (voiced by Alan Tudyk) takes center stage in the special, extended-look Trustthe Force trailer for Rogue One which was released late Friday ahead of its Dec. 16 release date.

K-2SO gets the ball rolling, voicing hollow support to rebel's rebel Jyn (Felicity Jones), based on Captain Andor's (Diego Luna) instruction.

"I'll be there for you," K-2SO tells Jyn. "The captain said I had to."

Charming.

K-2SO then shows mad accidental fighting skills, catching a bomb thrown by a Stormtrooper while pointing out, "Imperial forces are converging on our present location."

He tosses the bomb over his shoulder with Schwarzenegger nonchalance and comically kills a bunch of Stormtroopers.

Double-charming.

The new trailer also gives a peek at how hard it is to bring down an All Terrain Armored Cargo Transport (AT-ACT). After a direct hit, that thing doesn't go down and churns back to life.

Fortunately, these rebels do have a back up plan.

Tickets for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first stand-alone film in the storied franchise, will go on sale Monday at 12:01 a.m. The group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction.
