*John Boyega is the first person viewers see in the first teaser for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
The clip debuted in theaters and online Friday morning, immediately asking fans of the George Lucas franchise, “There’s been an awakening — have you felt it? ”
As previously reported, Boyega is a British actor best known for playing Moses in the 2011 sci-fi film “Attack the Block.” He also appeared in the film “Half the Yellow Sun” and on Fox’s mini-event “24: Live Another Day.”
His character for J.J. Abrams’ newest film in the “Star Wars” franchise has been kept under wraps, but from the looks of the trailer, rumors of him playing an Imperial Stormtrooper appear to be confirmed — but turned to the good side of the force.
We’ll know for sure when Abrams’s film arrives in theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
Until then, enjoy.
