Kylo Ren vs Finn in New Star Wars Episode 7 Clip

The official Star Wars Instagram page has released a new 15 second teaser for the upcoming Star Wars Episode 7 The Force Awakens. We see the wide shot of the assembled forces of the First Order and of Kylo Ren drawing his cross saber in the snowy wood at night, but there are two new segments as well. There is a new clip of Rey looking up at the sky from a forest floor with BB-8 and a shot of Finn igniting a blue lightsaber. It’s almost certainly part of the same scene in which he’ll face Kylo Ren.

Up until recently, we didn’t even know that Finn’s character would get to wield a lightsaber. That detail came to light with the official Star Wars Episode 7 movie poster by legendary movie artist Drew Struzan.

Of course, we’ll have to wait and see the scene in the movie, but at least it looks like John Boyega has got the two-handed saber-aloft pose down pat. Many fans hope that this teaser will be a harbinger of a new full length trailer to be released in the near future. Fingers crossed.

Star Wars Episode 7 The Force Awakens arrives in theaters December 18th, 2015.
