Here’s a New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Teaser (Featuring Even More Lightsabers)

It’s always a good day when lightsabers are involved.

J.J. Abrams and company made the world a better place on Thursday when they unveiled a teeny, tiny teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It’s on Instagram. It’s in landscape form (a new Instagram feature). And it’s fantastic.

There has been an awakening… #StarWars #TheForceAwakens

Yes, that’s John Boyega as Finn looking super badass with a blue lightsaber. And it looks like he’s about to get into some serious business with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and that super cool but maybe controversial crossguard lightsaber.

Meanwhile, Boyega has been entertaining folks on Twitter about the torment of being both a fan of the franchise and a star in the film.

The young British actor also graces the cover of the latest Empire magazine, along with co-stars Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac.

Looking good, everyone.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens Dec. 18.
