When we first met John Boyega’s character Finn in the teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he was dressed as a stormtrooper. Now, in the first poster for the film, he’s gone full Jedi on us, even wielding a blue lightsaber.
Boyega posted the new poster, designed by classic Star Wars and Indiana Jones poster artist Drew Struzan, on his Instagram profile. Check it out in full below.
The poster also features a still-fit and fighting Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Daisy Ridley’s character Rey (Han Solo’s daughter?) plus Star Wars bad guy Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver).
But it’s Boyega’s choice of weapon that has stirred the imagination: does this make him a Jedi after all? And is the blue lightsaber the same one used by Anakin Skywalker, and passed down to Luke?
