New Star Wars footage features Finn lighting up a light saber


Any Star Wars news is good news and so here is a brief clip that the Star Wars Instagram account shared. Why is it worth sharing here? Because it’s the first look at Finn and his light saber, and it looks like he’s about to take on Kylo Ren in that snowy forest we first saw him light up his hilted light saber in.

Interesting that Finn looks pretty down and angry there and his light saber looks a little worse for wear. It’s all very un-jedi like, or at least not the calm collected jedi we’ve come to know from the prequels. Just another reason to be overly excited about this one. 

There has been an awakening… #StarWars #TheForceAwakens
