Finn battles a stormtrooper in brand-new Star Wars footage

And he’s also teaming up with Han Solo to fly the Millennium Falcon


Upcoming sci-fi juggernaut Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens has another new TV spot, and this time it’s all about a character we still don’t know very well – John Boyega’s stormtrooper-turned-hero Finn.


In the footage we see Finn team up with Han Solo, take the helm of the Millennium Falcon (which must be a dream come true for fanboy Boyega) and battle a stormtrooper with some sort of energy staff. Maybe an old workmate he got on the wrong side of?

We may still not know his full name, why he leaves the dark side for the Resistance or how he gets involved in the action, but one thing’s for sure – it’s Finn we’ll all be pretending to be in the fake lightsaber duels to come.


Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will be released on 17th December
