With a little over 100 days to go until the arrival of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we're graced with a new 15-second clip containing a major reveal: namely, Finn -- the character originally seen in the first teaser trailer decked out in Stormtrooper armor -- holding a blue lightsaber. That's right, a blue lightsaber that bears an uncanny resemblance to Luke Skywalker's former weapon of choice, which he lost (along with his hand) in the duel against Darth Vader in the Cloud City of Bespin. Moreover, judging by the snowy environs, it would appear that Finn is about to square off against Kilo Renn, the mysterious figure who wields a strange crossguard lightsaber. Check out the clip below.
