This New Star Wars Footage Has Lightsabres

No big deal, just one of the characters from the new Star Wars movie busting out his fancy blue lightsabre.

This new footage appeared on the Star Wars instagram account. It doesn't tell us anything we don't already know. Of course there's gonna be some sort of lightsabre duel, but still. This is exciting. It is exciting to just watch this happen.

You can watch the whole thing below.

There has been an awakening... #StarWars #TheForceAwakens

Well, I guess the new main character Finn (played by John Boyega) is a Jedi? Either that or he just borrows one for a while? Could be a misdirection I guess.

Either way, I can't wait for this movie.


    Oh boy - someone knock me out now and wake me up December 17..............................................

    Anakin/Luke's lightsaber! The one that Luke lost on Bespin!

      Omg dude wtf?! It is! That's the one! Or he just crafted a similarly looking saber body...

    I'm kind of annoyed they spoiled him being a jedi. Would've preferred to go in to the film not knowing that. That plus the who's on what team spoilers for civil war are really making me hate the internet right now. Why must it be so hard to avoid these things?? D:

      I go by a general rule. If I KNOW I am going to watch a movie when it is released. I try to avoid as many trailers as possible. I saw the first trailer and was sold. Now I'm trying to avoid everything else for as long as possible.

      But it doesn't help when articles and the star wars team post the image of this guy as the thumbnail/article pic.

      the official poster shows him holding a lightsaber. u might need to stay indoors for a while to avoid that.

    Is that the same foresty background as that first teaser with the dude with the T-blade lightsaber?

      dude, did you even watch the new video?


        Deliberately so.

          You're safe to watch it, I think. John Boyega with a lightsaber is really all it shows. The gif and still from the tweet pretty much gives it all away anyway.

    Goosebumps. That is all I have to declare.

    Did they change Andy's voice or is it just me. He sounds different

    Is it me or dies he look like he's absolutely s**tting himself?
    Which i think is great.

      No, just breathing hard ... which is what he seems to be doing in every single shot (for trailers, I mean). I keep wondering if that was direction, or if he just overplays the whole 'breathless' thing.

      This might mean he is not an actual Jedi. He's probably wondering if he is even holding it the right way.

    Don't be scared John!!! He's only going to hurt himself using that silly multi lightsabre thing.
