Rumor: Star Wars Episode VII Plot Details Revealed


There has been a lot of speculation, rumors, reports, and hogwash in regards to the plot of Star Wars: Episode VII.

With that said, there has been a new report about the official plot and opening of the film that has gotten some attention in the last few days.


From 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."

There are multiple things that don’t make a lot sense, but that is a different post for a different day. Although many reports have said that the new characters and actors will seek out Han Solo and that will begin the journey, a 40 year old floating hand falling from the sky seems a bit gimicky for the most anticipated film of all time.

The report continues with some plot details:

"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…In many ways this plot of Episode VII is an echo of A New Hope. Instead of R2 coming to Tatooine it’s a hand falling from the sky, but the basic sweep of the story is similar, and intentionally so. But things that seem familiar may not be as familiar as you think – don’t assume that every ice or desert planet in the galaxy has already been visited, if you know what I’m saying."

The plot outlined here would make some sense, but this report should be taken with a grain of salt. There have been no official announcements from Disney or Lucasfilm regarding characters or plot, so you might want to use caution.

Nevertheless, this is a rumor out there that we want to pass along. Form your opinion at your own risk.
