There’s been an awakening alright, and I don’t care that it’s just 16 seconds, you owe it to yourself to watch this thing right now. Hopefully the full thing will drop soon.
So Disney posted this to their Star Wars Instagram account and while there are some youtube links out there, they keep vanishing. In order to be certain this one won’t vanish five minutes after I post it, i will embed the youtube link and that of the instagram :).
I know it is very short but the 16 seconds is worth it and c’mon don’t tell me you are not eager to take a peek. If it wasn’t for that thing at the end with Finn (John Boyega), I wouldn’t give this tiny teaser a second look. But you know, blue lightsaber (maybe Luke’s?) and possibly epic battle in the snow between him and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), that right there is enough. Also I guess between this and the poster released a week ago (which you can see below), it’s now all but certain that Finn is a Jedi, right? Finally the voice narrating is Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis), one of the bad guys.
