With J.J. Abrams having just confirmed that some of the rumors from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ are true, it is now time to share with you the rumored introduction to the film! That’s right, we have another huge potential spoiler to hare with you. At this rate we might know everything that happens in the first film before Disney even has a chance to release the second trailer.
How great is that?
So, as always if you want to go in spoiler free this is the time to turn back.
Still with me? You are just as much of a sadomasochist when it comes to this film as I am.
If this all holds true, according to the Making Star Wars site, we are going to see ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ open with a lone lightsaber falling from space and land in a Savannah styled environment.
I know these things have to be tough but I’m impressed that it can survive re-entry through a planet’s atmosphere.
Anyway, it is eventually found by a farmer named Naka who accidentally starts a fire when turning it on. This Naka runs away but at the last moment grabs the weapon and takes it with him. He takes it to The Vicar which is an elder in his village which may or may not be played by Max von Sydow.
The Vicar contacts the Rebels which introduces us to Oscar Isaacs’ Poe Dameron. Dameron is there to retrieve the lightsaber but comes up against a surprising foe. Representatives of the Empire have arrived and to safeguard the lightsaber, Dameron places it into the droid we’ve seen in the first trailer, BB-8.
Dameron prepares a distraction and goes up against the Stormtroopers while the droid gets away. Here is where we are introduced to John Boyega’s Finn. Finn sees his best friend die and because of this lets some of the villagers to go free as he is in mourngin. Kylo Ren finds out this happens and arrests Finn while burning down the village.
In the brig of a Star Destroyer, Dameron and Finn meet one another. They decide to join forces and hatch an escape plan in a stolen Tie Fighter which leads into the rest of the film.
While this new rumor does combine several rumors that we’ve already reported on, I’m still not sold. The lightsaber surviving a fall through an atmosphere seems a bit out of place unless there is more to it than just that. Hopefully when another trailer drops we’ll get a better idea, if any, of this and what to expect or not.
