BURBANK, Calif., Aug. 27 (UPI) — The official Instagram account for Star Wars uploaded new footage from The Force Awakens Thursday.

The short clip features impressive visuals including a massive gathering of stormtroopers and a possible lightsaber fight in the snow.

The footage is accompanied by a new score from composer John Williams and features a similar voice over from Andy Serkis‘ character Supreme Leader Snoke, first heard in the original teaser trailer for The Force Awakens.

“There has been an awakening…,” the caption reads.

Recently, Disney has fully committed to the Star Wars franchise by announcing two new Star Wars themed districts for its Anaheim and Orlando theme parks.
