The details on this, I stand by. Generally speaking, I’m pretty up front with what I don’t know or if I don’t know if something is concrete. What I’m discussing today is from my most trusted source and friend. The vast majority of the accurate reporting we’ve done on Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been thanks to this friend.
You really might not want to read these spoilers if you’re on the fence. This isn’t rocky. This is verified as having been shot at Pinewood. These are scenes and the documented players in them. This information is very accurate and very broad. It isn’t from the script. This is the first spoiler I’ve had where I’ve known it was so apparently accurate I was floored by it. If you’re cool with it and know you’re going to watch this movie 100 times a year and the first time doesn’t matter, but the longevity of the piece, like myself, sit down because you’re going to have a heart breaking day.
I’ve never jumped on this rumor because it seemed too easy. It also seemed all too likely. This is sort of a given but uttered as an assumption. We’ve seen people guess this without any inside information at all and it has made it nearly impossible for me to ever take any of it too seriously on the rumor-front.
Today that has all changed. For me, I am now in the camp about this being true. A source that has been proven not once or twice, but hundreds of times has documents proving this prevalent rumor. If there’s anything more to it, I can’t say. I’m only sticking to the documented facts on this.
The facts are this was shot at Pinewood:
- This sequence takes place on the ramparts of The Evil Castle.
- Han Solo is hiding.
- He decides to reveal himself to Kylo Ren.
- Finn, Rey, Chewbacca and BB-8 stop in their tracks.
- They watch as Han Solo confronts Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren silences the conversation forever.
- Chewbacca lets out of a barrage of angry roars and laser blasts.
- Kylo Ren flees the scene.
- Stormtroopers file in and Finn and Rey are forced to flee.
- More explosions.
- BB-8 and Chewbacca flee to the Falcon.
Han Solo is never in a scene after this. Those are the facts.
Yeah, it does really seem to mirror Obi-Wan Kenobi’s death. It seems like Han Solo knows they’re screwed and he’s buying them time. We have seen documentation this is what was filmed. There is no speculative spin to the above. If there’s anything else to this when the film comes out, I can’t factually say.
It does appear as if the scene we see of Kylo in the teaser is from the aftermath of murdering Han Solo. There have been rumors Luke was involved in this but there is no evidence at this time to corroborate that story.
