Warning: This contains potential spoilers for Star Wars: Episode VII.
Badass Digest claims to have scored something countless fans and entertainment sites have been scouring the Outer Rim for: plot details for director J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII.
Although the website is vague about some of the elements — and, really, it seems like this might be only the first act — if you want to avoid any potential spoilers, you should turn back now.
The film reportedly opens with a hand holding a lightsaber floating through space and landing on a desert planet, where itis found by John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. Boyega’s character wants to turn over a new leafm so he and Ridley’s character take off on a space-hopping journey to return the lightsaber to its rightful owner, Luke Skywalker. The duo meets up with Han Solo and Chewbacca, who are still pilots, but haven’t seen Luke since the end of Return of the Jedi. Meanwhile, some bad guys are building a solar system-destroying weapon on a snow planet. Badass Digest did note that these planets aren’t necessarily Tatooine and Hoth.
Episode VII is clearly taking some of its cues from the plot of Episode IV, with a young man’s journey to find an old Jedi kicking spurred by the appearance thanks to the appearance of a piece of machinery falling from space. Knowing Abrams’ work, however, the latest film will make its own twists and turns that separate it from what came before.
Star Wars: Episode VII opens Dec. 18, 2015.
