Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: The Sword of Destiny comes to Netflix February 26. The first trailer showcased the sequel’s stunning visuals and acrobatic action scenes; this new clip does the same, but it also offers up more hints about the plot and characters.

We get a look at the main holdover from 2000's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Yu Shu-Lien (Michelle Yeoh), channeling Obi-Wan (“listen with your mind”) as she trains a young swordswoman, who it seems will later turn against her. And there’s also a battle between Donnie Yen and Harry Shum, Jr. that takes place on an ice-covered lake, which looks amazing.

But considering that The Sword of Destiny is directed by Yuen Woo-ping—one of the top fight choreographers ever to work in martial arts cinema—he did the Matrix trilogy and the original Crouching Tiger—it’s a safe bet that the action scenes throughout will be nothing short of spectacular.

First let’s accept that it won’t come close to what Ang Lee did (that everyone is speaking English is already off-putting). Good. Now that we’ve lowered our expectations I’m hoping for a pleasant two hours when I get home from karaoke that night. I mean, it’s still Woo-Ping tearing shit up.

And Harry Shum Jr. continues the tradition of dancers seguing into martial arts movies.
