Super-smiley and beloved famous person Anna Kendrick has joined the Star Wars universe.

The Pitch Perfect actress can be seen doing her best impression of a Jedi, while wielding a butter knife instead of a lightsaber. She then evaporates leaving nothing but a pile of clothes à la Obi Wan Kenobi.


But instead of appearing starkers in the next shot, Anna embodies a rebel fighting stormtroopers in a huge battle. So what the heck is going on? Well, this isn’t more _Star Wars: The Force Awaken_s footage, but actually a live-action trailer for upcoming Star Wars game, Battlefront.

The game, which will take place in locations from the upcoming Star Wars sequel, will give fans a preview of the battle of Jakku, a skirmish that’ll feature in the new movie. Plus the chance to take control of classic characters such as Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo.

The teeny, tiny actress tweeted the famous film quote: “You can’t win Darth” along with a clip of her disappearing act to Twitter.

The game will force its way onto shelves on 17 November.
