When you gather the biggest Star Wars fans from all over the world in one place, there are bound to be some shenanigans. The Internet nearly exploded Friday when the first teaser trailer for The Last Jedi premiered at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, and now we have a video of cosplayers re-creating that famous final scene from last year’s Rogue One.
It starts with the Rebel Alliance rejoicing at receiving the Death Star plans and realizing that Darth Vader is coming for them, following the action as the plans pass from person to person, the Sith Lord slowly hunting them down and taking them down with both his lightsaber and the Force. It’s incredible how meticulous they are in acting out the scene, even including a Princess Leia cosplayer at the end when the blueprints finally reach their destination.

It might have been a bit confusing for other con-goers nearby at first, but I’m sure many of them caught on to what was happening fairly quickly. After all, these are hardcore Star Wars fans we’re talking about, and many of them have likely seen that scene over and over, especially now that the film is out on DVD and Blu-Ray.
