The two-minute trailer gave us a closer look at Captain Cassian Andor, a Rebel intelligence officer played by homeboy Diego Luna.

More importantly, the new trailer also featured Diego Luna’s natural accent instead of an American accent. This little detail did not go unnoticed by the Internet, and they’re loving every little bit of it.

In fact, people got straight up emotional about it.

Some even went so far as to thank Emperor Sheev Palpatine for this wonderful little treat.

Can you blame them? Luna’s accent is sexy AF that they actually bottle it in his native Mexico and sell it as an aphrodisiac.

It’s truly wonderful that people are loving that Diego Luna isn’t trying to hide where he’s from. Because when you make Latinxs visible in a galaxy far, far away, you make Latinxs visible here.

 You’re also giving a whole generation of future Latinxs geeks some badass characters to look up to.

So shout out to you, Disney, for giving us Poe Dameron, and now Cassian Andor.
