With a month to go until Star Wars Episode VII debuts, Disney is launching more and more TV commercials to promote the movie, releasing more and more previously unseen footage and plot details in the process. In the fifth ad of the series, we get a brief look at Finn, who’s apparently very scared of something he experienced while in service for the First Order.
A former Stormtrooper, Finn leaves service terrified of something. “We all need to run,” he says in the new ad, explaining that others have not seen what he has seen.
We see Finn operating the Millenium Falcon’s guns once again, something that was previously shown in the fourth Star Wars: The Force Awakens TV commercial, and we see him alongside Han Solo – who’s apparently featured in many official Star Wars video. And yes, he will fight Stormtroopers who have developed weapons that can be used against Lightsabers.
We also get a glimpse at the cute BB-8 robot, going for a spin inside the Falcon’s cabin.
The fifth Star Wars TV ad follows below, but at this point we can only hope Disney won’t release too many ads in the coming weeks. Director J.J. Abrams did say in recent interviews that he doesn’t want to spoil the movie via trailers – and he’s done a great job so far keeping Luke Skywalker’s fate a secret – but that he also wants to offer fans a taste of what’s to come.
