Finn Wields a Lightsaber in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Teaser!!

There seems to be a constant stream of news for Star Wars: The Force Awakens these days (not that we mind), and that continues with a brand new teaser revealed on their official Instagram account. Well, it’s fifteen seconds long. That doesn’t mean it isn’t hype as fuck. Disney have unfortunately pulled a bunch of the YouTube uploads, so you’ll have to watch it embedded from Instagram (if it doesn’t work then just go to the link). Check it out!!!

There has been an awakening… #StarWars #TheForceAwakens

While it’s mostly new footage it doesn’t confirm an awful lot besides the fact that Kylo Ren will be fighting Finn in the snow, presumably wielding Luke’s old lightsaber (and Anakin’s before him). The score was also interesting, because it sounds like a new rendition on the classic Sith theme – God bless you John Williams.

Unfortunately, this isn’t a teaser for a trailer like people briefly hoped for – it’s a promotion for Instagram’s new widescreen video feature. Pretty disappointing, but J.J. Abrams did confirm that a new trailer will be coming in the fall, so it’s hopefully not too far away.
