I've got some great infos for you today about the plot of Star Wars 7 and they're coming from the generally very reliable Devin Faraci who revealed them on Badass Digest. Although Devin tried to don't reveal too much and "stay vague" as he said what is below is potentially a big spoiler, so stop reading now if you don't want to know.
Still here? There we go:
"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..."
Devin add that "there's more, of course - this is just the broadest of outlines, a basic synopsis." No need to say that this unleashed reactions from the fans. Of course, everybody think that this "severed hand" - and light saber - is the one of Luke Skywalker cut by Darth Vader at the end of Empire Strikes Back, 30 years before, but it could be more complicated than that. Anyway, some think that if it is Luke's hand it might be a bit "too much", specially 30 years later, others think it's a mad but great idea and you can read all the comments on Badass Digest at the bottom of the article HERE. You're also welcome to leave your comment on Disney and more below.
And, talking about Star Wars i've posted on the D&M Facebook page a series of both Episode 7 fan made posters as well as Star Wars parody posters that you may want to have a look at HERE.
