THIS IS A SPOLER ALERT. SPOILERS AHEAD. DO NOT READ THIS ARTICLE ANY FURTHER IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO RUIN THE NEW STAR WARS FILM.

Okay, now that all that nonsense is out of the way and the angry trolls of the internet have been given fair warning of what is about to happen, it is with great excitement that I tell you that a few new plot details from Star Wars Episode VII have found their way online. According to our friend at Bad Ass Digest, who did their absolute best to be vague about their latest exclusive, the rebirth of the Star Wars franchise will have a few similarities to the iconic film that started it all (A New Hope). The site explains:

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…

TL;DR – A boy/man looking for his path in life stumbles upon something unique that takes him on a journey much larger and wilder than anything he ever imagined. Sounds like a story I heard once about a little boy who lived with his aunt and uncle on a little planet called Tatooine. Ring any bells?

Whatever the case, this is just a small part of what will likely be a much larger plot that will be revealed in the coming months leading up to the film’s winter 2015 release. Follow UTG on Twitter for updates.
