For those of you Star Wars fans who are excited about J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, and looking for more plot details today is your lucky day! Thanks to Badass Digest we have some info to share with you !
The following information is described by the site as being "very basic and general" premise. This is awesomely exciting stuff for me to read, and I'm curious to see what you all think. If you are trying to keep yourself clean from those dirty SPOILERS, then I suggest you don't read on. Here's the description:
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…
How freakin' cool does that sound!? I know it's not much, but it's enough to get me even more excited for this sequel that I'm already crazy excited about. In case you were wondering, this information comes from Devin Faraci, who is extremely reliable when it comes to movie info like this.
