"You don't know a thing about me."

If you thought that the four Star wars: The Force Awakens TV spots that have been released in the past seven days were all we would be seeing from the movie this week, then think again. Yet another short teaser is now online, and once again features new footage. Check it out here:

This latest clip puts the emphasis on John Boyega's character Finn, and shows him wielding a lightsaber and fighting alongside old favourites Han Solo and Chewbacca.

In a recent interview with EW, Boyega spoke about fulfilling a childhood dream of using a lightsaber to battle the Dark Side. "It started in rehearsals," he said. "We had Adam Driver [playing villain Kylo Ren]. That was the first time ever I had a stick in my hand that I could pretend was a lightsaber, which was the first stage of excitement. I had to do all the sound effects and stuff by myself.”

Once Boyega was on set, he was given a better prop to use in his scenes. "That's when I got the real saber, which is blue, it's lighted, and just looks really epic,” he said. "It felt monumental in my hand. I knew not to play like I used to when I was a kid, but to actually use it in serious combat for a scene. It's absolutely crazy to have in your hand. It's a bit heavy but it's worth it."

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens on December 18, 2015. It is directed by JJ Abrams and also stars Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill.
