There has been A LOT of speculation as to what the plot could even be about in the post Return Of The Jedi era. Could the Empire still exist? or is there another evil rising? What about Luke and his crew? Where are they? What are they doing?
Badass Digest has recently posted an article claiming they know those plot details of Star Wars: Episode VII and made it clear they are staying vague to not ruin everything for everyone. So bare in mind that THIS IS A POSSIBLE SPOILER WARNING!! Read on if you dare!
Imagine the standard Star Wars crawl, and when it ends the camera pans up to the stars. But instead of a spaceship zooming into frame we see… a hand! A severed hand, tumbling through space. A severed hand gripping a light saber.
That hand falls onto a desert planet, where it is discovered by characters who will be our heroes. One is Daisy Ridley. The other is John Boyega, who is playing someone trying to change his path in life (again, I’m keeping it vague here). They recognize the light saber as a Jedi relic and decide to return it to the proper people.
Their quest takes them off world, and they meet up with Han Solo and Chewbacca, who aren’t flying around in the Millenium Falcon anymore but are piloting… well, that could be a spoiler. I’ll leave it. Anyway, Han and Chewie recognize the light saber as Luke’s, and they say they haven’t seen their friend in thirty years, since the events of Return of the Jedi.
So begins a quest to find the missing Jedi Master. Meanwhile, on an ice planet, nefarious forces are building a super weapon, one capable of destroying not planets but entire solar systems…
They go on to state that it vaguely reminds them of A New Hope but executed differently. Giving praise to the characters and actors giving them life.
There is a few things in this that line up pretty well with things we have been hearing on our end. More than a few things actually and they fit like the perfect glove, but keep in mind that this is obviously nothing confirmed. Although this is starting to pick up speed with other larger sites. Head on over to the actual source to real the rest of what they have to say about it. How do you feel about it? Let us know.
