‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Why does Finn have Anakin’s lightsaber?

If you”ve been paying attention the the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” marketing, then you know that fans have been wondering about Finn (John Boyega) and his lightsaber since the first image of him with it (holstered) was released during Star Wars Celebration this past April.

Lucasfilm granted us a good look at Finn with the lightsaber in the teaser that was released this week, and it does indeed look to be Anakin Skywalker”s lightsaber (as some suspected). The one that Obi-Wan passed on to Luke. The same lightsaber that was lost when Luke”s father, Anakin/Darth Vader, cut off his hand in Cloud City.

People have been theorizing about how and why Finn appears to have Anakin's lightsaber in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and given some of the other recent reveals, we”ve come up with one about both how he got it and why he needed it.

Take a look in the video above or below and let us know what you think in the comments and/or talk to us on Twitter.
