STAR WARS NEWS: Its Finn vs Kylo Ren in New Teaser Plus New Empire Mag Photos

By Muuka Muyumba

We now know who Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is squaring off against in that iconic first few moments that we were privvy to back when the first teaser for The Force Awakens debuts way back when. A new teaser was posted to Star Wars: The Force Awakens Instagram site that gives life to the images of the First Order, Kylo Ren, and…

FINN!!!!!! John Boyega was revealed to be in possession of a lightsaber, and in particular, the first lightsaber that Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) lost when Darth Vader disconnected him from his hand. The lightsaber reveal happened when the first movie poster premiered last week during D23. Finn wielding a lightsaber was perhaps one of the most underreported news bits from that event, and I have wondered whether Luke speech we hear in The Force Awakens trailer is actually said to Finn, rather than what many assumed was Daisy Ridley’s Rey. So, just who else was a Jedi in Finn’s family?

Now, to play devil’s advocate, the first teaser image we were ever given of The Force Awakens was Finn popping up sweating and panting in a Stormtrooper suit in the desert on Jakku. The look on his face does not suggest that cool demeanor of a Jedi, so could it be that he just happens to be the person is possession of the lightsaber, tasked with the job to return it to its rightful owner? And, in the course of Finn’s journey to return the weapon, stumbles across an element (Kylo) he never anticipated. I don’t know, but cannot wait to find out!

Also new today, we get some first looks at a few different shots of Finn and BB-8 from the Force Awakens that debuted in Empire Magazine.
