Disney is letting no opportunity pass to tease what awaits fans in December with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, including an update to a social media platform.
As part of Instagram’s new capability for widescreen video, the official Star Wars Instagram account unveiled a new snippet-length teaser for the film. Some of the footage is old, but the big reveal comes at the end, as the now famous moment when Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) unsheathes his crossguard lightsaber is now matched with a moment from John Boyega’s Finn, who activates a lightsaber of his own.
Finn was seen with his active lightsaber in the Drew Struzan-created poster unveiled at D23 Expo, but this is the first clip from the film to show him using it.
