This New Force Awakens Teaser Has An Insane Lightsaber Surprise
There has been an awakening, we have felt it, AND IT FEELS SO GOOD.
A brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser is here, courtesy of the official Star Wars account on Instagram, and it is wonderful. It’s also short, but that does not matter, because what we do get to see here is beautiful, special, and surprisingly revelatory.
In the 15-second clip (in case you don’t have the time to watch it for yourself, and if that’s the case, how do you have the time to be reading this???), we see some familiar shots: The First Order standing tall and organized, as Andy Serkis’ Supreme Leader Snoke whispers the same haunting phrase we heard in the first Force Awakens trailer: “There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?”
Next, we see Rey, the new character played by Daisy Ridley, alongside her little droid pal BB-8. Are they still in Jakku? It does not look like it, based on the forested ground at their feet. (Please don’t be Endor, please don’t be Endor, okay maybe it would be hilarious if it’s Endor.)
Then we see Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren in the snowy forest, his ragged cross-guarded lightsaber in hand, popping the red blades just as we saw in the first trailer…
And then—AND THEN!—here comes Finn, John Boyega’s AWOL Stormtrooper, popping a lightsaber of his own, blue in hue, in the same snowy forest as Kylo Ren. It’s go time for Kylo and Finn, but not nearly close enough to go time for the rest of us. December 18, get here faster!
