New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Footage Teases Lightsaber Duel (VIDEO)

New footage from Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens has been unveiled through the movie’s official Instagram page, and it’s got the internet buzzing like the hum of a lightsaber.

It’s only a couple of seconds of new footage, but what we see is pretty outstanding, from a large gathering of The First Order, to a new shot of Daisy Ridley’s character, Rey, looking up at something distressing while the lovable BB-8 muses in the background. But it’s the shot of John Boyega’s Finn that has caused the biggest stir. In this clip, we see him in the snow-covered forest where Kylo Ren has activated his crossguard lightsaber. In response, Finn ignites a lightsaber of his own, colored blue! It’s a major tease for a major duel, and it’s gotten us frothing at the mouth to get this damn movie in front of our eyeballs AT NOW O’CLOCK. But let us know what you think by checking out the clip below:
