Hailee Steinfeld is growing up!

The 16-year-old actress, who was nominated for an Oscar in 2011 for True Grit, plays Petra Arkanian in the upcoming Ender's Game, starring Abigail Breslin and Harrison Ford among others.

The sci-fi action flick, based on Orson Scott novel by the same name, kicks off 70 years after an alien race called the Formics attacks Earth. In preparation for another invasion, the people of earth band together and train its strongest children to prevent their annihilation in the future, according to IMDB.

Petra, who is a bit of an outcast, is one of the few female students at the Battle School--the training ground for the future leaders of the Earth-saving effort. She acts as an older sister to main character Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) and eventually becomes a part of his informal team.

Don't miss Hailee in Ender's Game when it hits theaters Nov. 1.
