A new Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser is here, and it confirms what we've already seen on the film's first official poster: that Finn will wield a lightsaber.

Not only that, but it looks like he will be going toe-to-toe with new big bad Kylo Ren, who we saw unleash his crossguard lightsaber in our very first look at the film. We also get another look at a massive gathering of the First Order we've seen glimpses of in previous trailers, as well as a new shot of Rey and BB-8 on a world that definitely isn't the desert planet of Jakku.

The footage comes from the official Star Wars Instagram account. What does it all mean? Is a new, full-length trailer on the way? Hard to say right now, but the fact that Finn will wield the weapon of the Jedi is a major development for what may happen in the film. We know John Boyega's character begins as a Stormtrooper before meeting up with Rey. Now, it seems like he may walk the path of the Jedi as well before the film is through. You can check out the teaser below.
