John Boyega has given fans a taste of one of Finn’s new toys in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Boyega is active on Instagram and must have jumped through a few hoops to get permission to post a short little video showing off Finn’s blaster for the upcoming movie.
There’s no doubt it’s going to be augmented through CGI, but the flashing lights and the fact that it looks like a decent piece of machinery is another look at practical effects fanboys lose their minds over. We still don’t know much about this movie — we just saw Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern’s characters for the first time this week — but it’s still kind of cool to see which toy replicas kids are going to be begging their parents for this Christmas season.
Summary: Having taken her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), Rey continues her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the saga.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson, stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Carrie Fisher, and Adam Driver. It will be released on December 15th.
