For the longest time, we've speculated that Finn (John Boyega) from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens was asthmatic, given his propensity for heavy breathing in almost every frame from the movie's trailers. Thankfully though, he seems to have found his inhaler, as Star Wars' Instagram account has released a short video that sees Finn wield a lightsaber.

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

While only a handful of Star Wars characters have picked up a lightsaber, the most notable being Han Solo of course, we assumed that Finn would go into one of his fits when he turned the blue lightsaber on. Surprisingly, Finn is quite the opposite, looking pretty ticked off at however he's pointing the lightsaber at, perhaps Rylo Ken given the snowy forest location?

Either way, it's good to see Finn get over his breathing fits long enough to show us how badass he is. For a reminder why we're amped up to watch this December 2015-slated film, click on the trailer below.
