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