If this is true I must say I am rather disappointed that we found out this early because it sounds pretty awesome. The following paragraphs will contain potential spoilers about Star Wars Episode VII, so proceed with caution if you want to be spoiler free.
You have been warned.
Badass Digest is reporting that the plot, and a lot of script details, for Star Wars Episode VII have leaked. Included in this leak are key plot points, characters, and the overall flow of events. It even details an opening scene. Now, keep in mind that this is all a rumor at this point but also remember that it could very well turn out to be true.
According to this leak, we will see the familiar Star Wars credit roll and it pans to find a floating, severed hand in space with a lightsaber in its grip. It lands on a desert planet and is discovered by the film's heroes to be played by John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. Boyega is apparently playing a character trying to change the course of his life (familiar enough). The pair recognize the lightsaber as an old Jedi relic and decide to return it to its rightful place.
The quest leads them to Han Solo and Chewbacca where they recognize the relic as Luke Skywalker's lightsaber and mention they haven't seen Luke since the events of Return of the Jedi which happened 30 years prior. Meanwhile, there is an evil force on a nearby frozen planet is developing a weapon capable of destroying entire solar systems, not just planets.
One thing that this plot reminds me of is A New Hope. It's almost like Luke stumbling across R2-D2 on Tatooine only it's characters stumbling across a severed hand. One thing it does reinforce, if it's true, is that John Boyega is indeed the main character of this new trilogy. It also is curious to think that Han and Leia are married, but they haven't seen Luke in 30 years? Also wondering, does Luke not develop a new Jedi academy? If lightsabers and Jedi tales are still considered relics that is somewhat curious.
I find this plot interesting enough, but I want a little bit more before I make a full judgment. Something about opening a movie with a severed hand is a bit odd.
