All right, Star Wars, this is how you wanna play? Just drop a new teaser on your Instagram account out of nowhere and make us all freak out?
Because that’s what just happened.
Check it out!
It consists of the same Andy Serkis dialogue from the first teaser trailer and shots of The First Order and Kylo Ren, but there’s also some new stuff. Like Rey and BB-8 in what looks like a forest! And Finn wielding a lightsaber!
Hold on, what?
That’s right. Feast your eyes on the first shot of Finn wielding Anakin’s lightsaber! (Or Luke’s, depending on how you refer to it.) In what looks like the same setting as the famous shot of Kylo Ren igniting his haggard lightsaber. Showdown between hero and villain? WE ARE SO THERE.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams and starring Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Daisy Ridley, Domhnall Gleeson, Adam Driver, and Gwendoline Christie, is set to come out on December 18, 2015.
