'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Latest TV Spot Features Way More John Boyega

Hey, it’s been a couple of days since we’ve seen anything new from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, right? Well, now with just a month left on the clock before we see it, here’s yet another new TV spot with even more fresh, shiny footage. Spoilers live after the jump if you’re afraid of such things.

This time around, John Boyega’s Finn is definitely the focus—is feels like we’re going to get one for each new main character at this point—and there’s some interesting stuff to check out. We know he’s an AWOL stormtrooper, and that he and his fellow recruits were fed propaganda from a young age to poison them against the New Republic and fool them into thinking the First Order are the good guys.

He’s also apparently going to wield a lightsaber more than we initially thought, as there’s new footage of him throwing down with a stormtrooper, packing a cool new hand-to-hand weapon, nowhere near that snowy landscape where he faces off with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). This is only going to further fuel speculation that he’s a Jedi, or at least strong with the Force.

For a 30-second spot, there’s a good amount to take in here, and we only have a month to wait to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18. Assuming you already bought your tickets, otherwise you’re shit out of luck.
