This short teaser posted to the Star Wars Instagram gives us another look at the Sith baddie, Kilo Ren and his cross beamed lightsaber, but there's a little bit of new news. Namely, John Boyega's character, Finn wielding a lightsaber of his own.

This blue beauty appears to be Luke's original lightsaber from A New Hope, which was lost with Luke's hand in a lightsaber duel in the Cloud City above Bespin.

John Boyega went to visit a small Star Wars fan at the Royal London Hospital.  As he explains in the image description he shared on Instagram, Boyega stayed in character the whole time: 

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper.

He even found a Rey to hold his hand during the trip:
