John Boyega wields a lightsaber in this Star Wars: The Force Awakens tease

08.27.2015

Drew Struzan's poster for THE FORCE AWAKENS was the first time we've actually "seen" John Boyega's character, Finn, wield a lightsaber . . . until now. This latest tease comes courtesy of the official Star Wars Instagram and shows us who may be on the receiving end of Kylo Ren's wicked broadsaber. Check it out!

There has been an awakening... #StarWars #TheForceAwakens

A video posted by Star Wars (@starwars) on

Something tells me that we're not too far off from a new trailer for the upcoming space opera, and if it includes more shots of Boyega sporting a lightsaber, I'm all in (as if I wasn't anyway)! While the real meat of the story is still up in the air, there's no doubt that the actors are doing a hell of a job conveying the gravity of each scene and situation. Mannequin Skywalker? Not this time around!

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opens in theaters on December 18, 2015

Not sure who Boyega's character is supposed to be (as I've been purposely not reading details), but is this really a highly anticipated moment? Maybe I'm missing something. Movie looks cool either way, just not sure why it is so hyped this guy has a light sabre.

He's basically a nobody, a blank slate, a totally new character who may or may not have any connection with any of the old characters. Which is why it's cool to see a 'nobody' wielding a lightsaber. It's in some way a wish fulfillment for the audience.

Almost confirms that the main plot for The Force Awakens is about The First Order and Kylo Ren hunting Finn ever since his 'awakening', either to quell the Jedi reemergence or to recruit him to their side.

Sounds like a cool premise. Maybe Kylo is an Inquisitor?

I think he was rumored to be called 'Inquisitor' early on in the production, though it may just be something that got mixed up with Star Wars Rebels' development. It's also possible that the Inquisitor character in Rebels was a precursor or a test bed for Kylo Ren.

Yep! I figure since Luke got sucked out an exhaust port when he let him myself fall on Bespin, his hand and lightsaber could've done the same.

As best can tell from that, yes it's the one Luke lost on Bespin.

Serkis

Just listened to the Serkis VO from the first teaser and it has indeed been rerecorded for this new tease.
I like it even better.

Wow. Just, wow.

I have an amazing feeling about this.
But, is it me or does it look like Boyega's hand is touching the lightsaber blade at the hilt?
You know what, I don't even care!
So stoked!!!

J.J. Abrams and DIsney are hitting all the right notes with STAR WARS

these teasers are brilliant at getting the audience pumped while not giving too much away. Looking forward to seeing Finn throw down against Kylo Ren.

If George Lucas did Episode VII

If GL did Ep VII, the X-wings would have six wings. Or eight.

GAAAHHHHH!

Seriously, these teases are perfect. Dropping hints while not telling you anything.
I'm just excited that the film drops when we get out for winter break at my school so I can spend my break watching Star Wars and not thinking about teaching for a while.
