Who's that with a lightsaber? 'Star Wars' Instagram unveils new footage

(CNN)Instagram launched its new landscape video capability with a bang on Thursday. For the first time, users of the photo and video app can share images using the "widescreen" format.

So what caused all the hubbub? Two words: "Star Wars."
The @starwars account got the opportunity to try this new capability out for the first time, sharing a teaser for one of the most-anticipated movies of the year, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
One shot in particular got fans buzzing: Stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) is wielding a lightsaber, and could very well be going into battle with the evil Kylo Ren.
    Now that we have an inkling as to Finn's possible Jedi abilities, there's even more reason to be excited for the movie, out December 18.
    Boyega had a particularly emotional response: "Frig my life ! I'm in tears!"
    See the brief teaser below:

    There has been an awakening... #StarWars #TheForceAwakens
