Yes, we’re pretty darn pumped about this new footage even if we’ve had burps that lasted slightly longer and we already knew Boyega’s character Finn would be wielding a lightsaber (after a poster was revealed of him doing just that earlier this month). It’s still exciting to see it for real, right? Plus, it also means there may be a full trailer on the horizon…
Interestingly, the new footage makes it look like he’s facing off against Adam Driver’s not-a-Sith baddie Kylo Ren in a forest, and although Finn looks a little worried we reckon he’ll be fine – his lightsaber doesn’t have a pointless/downright dangerous crossguard so he’s already got the advantage when it comes to not accidentally losing fingers (a key component in Jedi training, we assume).
Still, Boyega’s new Jedi skills aren’t the only thing we see in the teaser – we also get a glimpse of Daisy Ridley’s Rey looking ominously up at the sky (above – it’s hard to tell if BB-8 is also looking up ominously, thanks to his cute little droid face) and another look at the image of villains the First Order that we had such fun with earlier this month. We still maintain that they got their style tips from Thomas Cromwell.
