Like an agile Jedi, the Star Wars Instagram feed quietly uploaded a new teaser for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’ What makes this news more incredible is that the teaser packs in new footage in its 15 seconds length and the end is enough to make your jaw drop.
Needless to say, if you decide to continue on, there will be spoilers…
If you recall, at D23, limited editions of Drew Struzan’s ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ posters were given to attendees and with an exciting tease in John Finn’s hand of a very familiar lightsaber:
That lightsaber appears again in Finn’s hands in the teaser below. Not only that, it appears it will be used against the not-a-Sith-Lord Kylo Ren! By now we are all familiar with the scene in the trailers where Kylo Ren is purposely walking through the snowy woods as he activates his hilted lightsaber and now we see who he is striding towards – Finn bracing himself for battle holding the famous lightsaber once owned by a famous Jedi!
The short footage seems to verify the rumors that somehow Daisy Ridley’s character Rey finds the lightsaber which leads her and Finn on a mission to find Luke Skywalker who may be guarding a Sith tomb that Kylo Ren wants access to but needs a special lightsaber to open it (hence, why he’s after Finn and Rey). With sources saying that John Boyega’s Finn will give the movie a viewpoint that “has echoes of Luke’s arc in A New Hope,” the footage of the impending battle between the two just got more exciting!
Hopefully the release of this teaser means that a full trailer will be out soon. While we are waiting, do you think the teaser has confirmed the rumors we’ve been hearing about the film? Let us know in the comments section below.
