Star Wars: The Last Jedi's debut is just a couple weeks away, and while you wait, you can check out some new behind-the-scenes footage. This featurette shows off the cast learning some of the epic moves they'll be putting to action in the film.

In the video, we see Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, and Kelly Marie Tran train as they learn the choreography. We also hear from assistant fight coordinator Liang Yang, who impressively boasts that Ridley learned complicated moves quicker than expected. Some of these combinations were to be learned in three days time, but she caught on in a mere hour-and-a-half. "She's a very quick learner," Yang says.

Gwendoline Christie, who plays Phasma, mentions in the video that this is the "hardest physical thing" she's done yet. Adam Driver has similar sentiments, saying that the training is "rigorous in a great way" and that the stunt team is "very disciplined."
