Finn ignites his blue lightsaber for the first time in the new teaser trailer (mini clip) from Lucasfilm. While we’ve seen this bit – sort of – in the first poster for the film revealed earlier this month, this is the first time we’re to understand that the character played by John Boyega appears to be on the same planet as Kylo Ren, one of this film’s primary villains. That’s not all – there’s a super tiny clip of Rey as well!
This clip is extremely short. Don’t get your hopes up too high for a mind-blowing bit of cinema in this one tiny release. What we’re hoping for here is a follow-up trailer with more footage – this bit comes from Instagram.
Another unfortunate side-effect of this clip having been released to Instagram first is its size. It’s not even 720p. Sadness. Chances are we’ll see something much larger in the near future.
Note that this is the first time we’ve seen the snow planet troop standing scene in the United States, too. The first sighting was in a brief teaser just a couple weeks ago internationally.
