A small plot release has been leaked, there was one put on reddit but that was proven to be fake, another was put up on comicbook.com.
The post on reddit was a full plot summary that seemed to have copied the comicbook.com leak. The comicbook.com leak seems like it was just the first acts plot. Obviously there will be spoilers from this point on.
Heres the link to comicbook.com
Here is the plot leak,
The backstory to Luke and his Jedi being wiped out is that Snoke seduced Kylo and a few of the other students to the dark side and tasked them with killing everyone. Luke and a few others survived, including a young Rey who was subsequently dumped on Jakku by Luke.
Rey's mom died in the attack.
Rey is pissed at Luke because she guesses that he was her father and is angry at him for abandoning her. Luke turns to her and says "No, you are my father".
Rey is the reincarnation of Anakin Skywalker. Luke went to the first Jedi temple to better understand how the process works. He learned that the spirit of the chosen one is reincarnated by the Force every time the universe is thrown out of balance, which apparently happens on a semi-regular basis (Anakin was hardly the first time the chosen one reincarnated). This is why she's so crazy powerful with the Force (remember that Anakin blew up the Trade Federation donut ship by himself when he was like 8 years old).
Rey was the product of a virgin birth, but midichlorians aren't mentioned (Luke says "you are a child of the Force").
Luke is hesitant to train her because, according to Jedi history, the chosen one always struggles with staying on the light side of the Force because of the chaotic power running through them. He's afraid that she could become Vader 2.0. If he trains her to fight Kylo, and she turns dark, she would do way more damage to the galaxy than Kylo could ever dream of doing.
He ultimately trains her anyway and leaves everything up to the Force. He makes this decision in a scene where he confers with the ghosts of Obi-Wan and Yoda (Ewan MacGregor and Frank Oz come back).
Rey learns lightsaber skills, Force skills, and has a vision quest thing where she talks with Maz Kanata (unsure if it’s telepathy or just a dream) and Hayden Christenson. The latter tells her that she is him, but different, and there’s a quick scene where we see hundreds of other Force ghosts who are implied to be past chosen ones.
So just throwing some shit against the wall here, are all the new Star Wars movies going to be a scene for scene remake of the original trilogy?
That will be fun. I enjoy the CGI air battles and fight scenes. I just really don't want to sit through the same plot. I get that this might be seen as a twist, it's not. It will be a mix of Anakins fate with Lukes story. Am I the only one who thought when JJ Abrams said he was going to bring changes to the franchise, that there was actually going to be changes? Why did this happen? Is George Lucas using the jedi mind trick on JJ, having him make shitty movies so that the prequel trilogy doesn't look so bad?
I really hope I'm wrong and they don't do the exact same things but it really is not looking good.
