More rumored plot details for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII

Jul. 21, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

Like previous rumored plot details for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, you're going to want to take this latest report with a giant grain of salt. Although Badass Digest is vague when it comes to spoilers, they do reveal what could be the premise for J.J. Abrams' new movie, so if you absolutely do not want to know anything about the next STAR WARS flick, you're going to want to avoid the rest of this article. You've been warned.

With that out of the way, here's how STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will open, according to Badass Digest.

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.

Of course, we all know who the "proper people" are, and Daisy Ridley and John Boyega's search for them sets up their meeting with a couple of characters from the original trilogy...

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.

The site goes on to say "Meanwhile, on an ice planet, nefarious forces are building a super weapon, one capable of destroying not planets but entire solar systems..."

If this report is true, it looks like characters new and old searching for Luke Skywalker will make up a good chunk of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Badass Digest has also heard very positive things about the action and the characters themselves, and that "John Boyega owns this movie," something we've heard a couple of times now. You might think the ice planet mentioned is Hoth from THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, however Badass Digest says, "Don't assume that every ice or desert planet in the galaxy has already been visited, if you know what I'm saying."

I think looking for Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker is an interesting way to bring the new and old cast members together, but we should remember this is only a rumor, and not confirmed plot details for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. What are your thoughts on STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - THE SEARCH FOR LUKE SKYWALKER?

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will be in theaters on December 18, 2015.

Fuck all y'all. That brief synopsis sounds awesome. Better than opening the movie with a boring trip to a space station where two Jedis were left in an empty meeting room, followed by a pretty bland escape scene and ends with them landed straight on top of Jar Jar Binks' ass. A severed bionic hand holding a lightsaber is a great way to set up the overall mood of the movie. It's a few years later and the optimistic hope we once had at the end of Return was lost. Shit was deteriorating fast.

Bionic hand? You realize Luke had the bionic hand attached AFTER his real hand was lopped off? Don't reply with "excuse me mr perfect" type of reply, there's a huge difference between a bionic (manufactured) hand and a real (human) hand.

HAHAHA...

This just can't be true. If it is, someone should be shot. But there's just no way this is legit. Beyond the whole dumb hand falling to a planet thing, I hate, hate, hate the idea that Han and Chewie haven't seen Luke in 30 years.

Please show some editorial restraint

This is obviously B.S., so many people have pointed out an obvious detail that it amazes me seeing so many sites sharing this garbage.

One has to ask the question is this Luke's other hand or robotic hand and ROTJ lightsaber or is it the hand and lightsaber he lost on Bespin? In which case How the hell did it get into space above orbit of a desert planet?

Also, is the lightsabre in the 'on' or 'off' position? If 'on', does it still make lightsabre noises as it twirls its way through space? How long do the batteries last on those things? Is a floating lightsabre a danger to interplanetary trade?

They probably check the Empire's extensive Terrorist Fingerprint Database, archived for convenience on Tatooine.

Just like Lakeside Recluse showed below, there was a book series a while ago with a similar "hand" plot (though not the same). I think that part sounds kind of silly for the film, but who knows. Sand planet also screams Tattooine to me despite the remark about assumptions. Almost every SW film has Tattooine in it, save Empire, right? It seems like a home base for the series. Finally, I am giving this a green because of the reports that Boyega is owning the film. I hope that part turns

and then everyone changes their name in the middle of the movie and we realize it is a half ass reboot/remake of The Hand!!

Jon Lansdale is a comic book artist who loses his right hand in a car accident. The hand was not found at the scene of the accident, but it soon returns by itself to follow Jon around, and murder those who anger him.

This opens up all sorts of possibilities: Darth Vader's original legs landing on a planet. Jango Fett's helmeted head landing on a planet. Obi Wan Kenobi's lower half landing on a planet. Ponda Baba's severed arm landing on a planet. Bits of the Death Stars landing on a planet.

OMG, Darth Maul's lower half landing on a planet - and having the top half rebuilt with robotic parts! And then Darth Maul Legs has to fight Darth Maul Torso from 'Clone Wars'!

First of all, Luke's hand floating through space? That is the dumbest thing I have ever read. Second, we're supposed to believe that Han hasn't seen Luke since Return of the Jedi? I can't describe the number of ways that doesn't make sense. This "scoop" is a scoop of shit. At least I hope it is.

Spoiler stupidity

If someone didn't want to know any details about the film whatsoever why the hell would they have even clicked an article titled spoilers and read far enough to get to the spoiler warning.

Joblo please consider revising your minimum word count so your writers don't continue to destroy what credibility the site has left with unnecessary and over-worded nonsense.

The reason why many times there is "unnecessary and over-worded nonsense" involving spoilers is because when you view the site from a computer, it normally shows at least a couple of sentences from the article as a preview. We don't want to spoil anything for people who are just scrolling through the latest news. If we jumped right into the spoilers at the very start of the article, someone might end up seeing something they didn't want to know about a film.

This is so stupid! It can't be true. First, the hand fell into Bispin (Gas Planet) and not into space. Second, the hand wouldn't survive re-entry into a planets atmosphere. Third, it is the stupidest fake-plot I've ever read.

Luke had a prosthetic hand after Vader cut his real one off. A robotic prosthetic could theoretically survive re-entry.
