‘Star Wars 7’ New Trailer Shows Stormtrooper Finn with Lightsaber [Watch]


There is nothing more exciting for the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” fans than to witness a teaser. Recently, a clip that depicts Stormtrooper Finn yielding a Lightsaber has been revealed via Star Wars’s official Instagram account.

The social media application released a new “landscape capability feature” which allows users to “share images using the ‘widescreen’ format,” CNN reported.

Fortunately, Star Wars’s account was one of the Instagram users that was able to take advantage of the newest app feature. For the first time, their 1.5 million followers witnessed John Boyega, who plays Stormtrooper Finn, holding a blue Lightsaber:

Based on the clip, CNN believes that Finn might have Jedi’s abilities. He may be fighting with Sith lord Kylo Ren as well.

Boyega shared his excitement about the new teaser on his Twitter account, posting “Frig my life ! I’m in tears!”

Aside from the guess that Finn might be facing Sith lord Kylo Ren, The Verge also reveals a few more possibilities about this year’s highly anticipated movie.

Star Wars production team distributed some of the movie posters which was originally created by legendary poster artist Drew Struzan during Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim. Kwame Opam was able to grab one and shared the artwork via social media.

Noticeably, Stormtrooper Finn is holding a similar weapon.

The poster and Boyega’s clip somewhat hint that it could the the same sword which was Luke Skywalker’s lost weapon after battling with Darth Vader in “The Empire Strikes Back.”

Notably, the blue Lightsaber was originally from Anakin Skywalker which was passed on to Luke. How Stormtrooper Finn get hold of the weapon is still a mystery, though, and that might be one of the most exciting revelations to look forward to.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” premieres on Dec. 18.
