New Star Wars: The Force Awakens TV Spot Features New Stormtrooper Weapons
< >
After showing so much restraint for the first year or so, the marketing campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is finally giving us a barrage of new footage (but is it too much?). Now, in this new TV spot, they show us some new footage of Han passing on the torch to Finn and the new "melee" Stormtroopers:



We've seen the flamethrowing Stormtroopers in previous TV spots, but this was the first to focus on this new weapon that appears to be an electrostaff for melee combat. In the clip, we see Finn's blue lightsaber (previously Luke's) lock with the Stormtrooper's baton, and it seems that the baton was made for the express purpose of fighting the Jedi.

Melee Stormtrooper confirmed?

And while previous footage has focused on the relationship between Han and Rey (since she's probably his daughter and everything), this new footage shows Finn and Han having a moment as well. "Are you sure you're up for this?" Han asks, and Finn isn't sure, but judging by how much fun he seems to be having while driving the Millennium Falcon, it looks like he gets the hang of things.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18.
