Are you ready for this? ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ just unveiled a brand-new teaser that will blow your mind. The new look at the highly-anticipated movie features John Boyega (a.k.a. Finn) wielding that familiar lightsaber! Click to WATCH!

There has been an awakening in a galaxy far, far away, and it’s going to be epic. A new teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been released that gives us a glimpse at John Boyega’s character, Finn, turning on his lightsaber. From the looks of it, is he about to go head-to-head with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver)? Watch and see!


“There has been an awakening,” an ominous voice-over asks in the Instagram teaser. “Have you felt it?” Oh, we’ve felt it. The new look features what could be one of the big battle scenes between two of the main characters — Kylo Ren and Finn. 

We’ve all seen the moment where Kylo shows off his crossguard lightsaber, but in the new clip, Finn’s got his own lightsaber — and it looks very familiar. He flips on his blue lightsaber in the snow-covered woods, and he’s ready to fight. Who will win this face-off? Dun, dun, dun.

The teaser also shows glimpses of the First Order army, including leaders Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) and Kylo Ren, as well as and Daisy Ridley’s Rey.

Since we saw Kylo reveal that shocking lightsaber for the first time in the initial trailer, fans have been wondering about Kylo’s origins. Director J.J. Abrams confirmed to Empire magazine that “Kylo Ren is not a Sith. He works under Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis), who is a powerful figure on the Dark Side of the Force.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
