‘Rogue One’ Star Felicity Jones Gets Heckled by Stormtroopers in ‘SNL’ Promo (Video)

The empire talks smack in new ”Saturday Night Live“ teaser

Apparently the comedy Force is not strong with Felicity Jones. At least not among the Stormtrooper crowd.

A new promo for Jones’ “Saturday Night Live” stint this weekend surfaced online Wednesday and, as evidenced in the clip, Jones — who plays Jyn Erso in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” — isn’t exactly a hit with the white-helmet faction.

“What do you think? Do you think I’m ready?” Jones asked the assembled test-audience of Stormtroopers.

After receiving a ho-hum response, Jones drops another line — and receives an even wore audience reaction.

“Thanks guys; you’re a real bunch of troupers,” Jones declares, a line that’s met with a chorus of groans and a heckling trooper’s, “Cheesy!”

Whew — tough crowd. But then that should have been evident by the imposing uniforms and costumes.

Jones’ episode, with musical guest Sturgill Simpson, airs January 14.
