We anxiously anticipate seeing Felicity Jones kick bad guy butt in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Everything about the movie looks amazing. And, needless to say, seeing a strong and powerful woman as the lead character is extremely exciting.

But Felicity Jones reminded all of us that a strong woman the only reason we should be excited for the film.

In fact, she considers her commanding character as totally normal. And we honestly couldn’t agree more.

According to Digital Spy, Felicity made some pretty valid points about all the hullabaloo surrounding her character Jyn Erso.

Her matter-of-fact nature about her character helps create exactly the type of dialogue shift that would make it more commonplace to see women as leaders in big action movies. And that is a world we definitely want to live in.

Even the film’s director, Gareth Edwards, echoed her sentiment.

We love the fact that they committed to making sure Jyn will feel totally real. Especially since it will represent the power of real women.

Since the original series, Star Wars always portrays strong women in leadership positions in its universe. So it only seems appropriate that they follow the storyline of yet another of those spectacular women.

We cannot wait to see the badass Jyn in action in Rogue One on December 16.
