Months ahead of The Force Awakens release in theaters a plot outline leaked online, and it was actually about 99% accurate when compared with the finished film. So far Episode VII has been stayed clear of leaks, but now a supposed script outline has found it’s way on Reddit. Mind you, since this is from Reddit, take it with a grain of salt. The full version can be found by clicking below, but first you may want to read a plot twist that will certainly leave hoards of fans enraged if it turns out to be true. It’s an understatement to say no one saw this coming:
POTENTIAL MAJOR SPOILERS FOLLOWS
“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.”
Pretty insane, right? Takes the “I am your father.” twist to a whole new level.
I don’t think really think this is true, but it’s not worth counting it out of the realm of possibility. This would definitely be one of the most original plot twists ever if true. So what do you think? Is this where you want Rey’s story to go moving on? Let us know in the comments!
