Just a snippet of Star Wars will have to suffice for now! Fans of the beloved franchise were treated to a short teaser trailer posted to Instagram on Thursday, Aug. 27 — and by the looks of it, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will not disappoint.

In the short clip, John Boyega’s character, Finn, is shown for the first time without a Stormtrooper costume, wielding a bright blue lightsaber against Adam Driver’s character, Kylo Ren, who is holding a red one.

A previous teaser trailer released in November had fans chattering about Driver’s unusual red lightsaber, which mega-fan Stephen Colbert described at the time as “a lightsaber with two mini lightsabers on it. It’s a ménage à sabres.”

Earlier this year, Star Wars vets Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill reunited at San Diego’s annual Comic-Con more than 30 years after the first film was released in 1977.

Asked how he felt returning to Star Wars, Ford replied, “It should have felt ridiculous… Here I was doing something that I did so long ago. But I can tell you that it felt great.”
