New Star Wars Might Be Spoiled Already

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hasn't even awoke yet, but there are already spoilers for the damn thing.  Some of which reveal the beginning (rumored) scenes and motivations of main characters played by Oscar Isaac and John Boyega. 

So naturally feel free to read on, but, you know, spoilers are ahead...

Allegedly, the film that will make or break director JJ Abrams opens on a lightsaber floating in space, before it plummets to the planet below, where a native farmer takes it to someone codenamed 'The Vicar' (this is apparently Max Von Sydow's character), who in turn contacts the Rebel Alliance about the weapon.

This brings Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac with a decidedly Star Wars name) to the planet, but the Empire arrive soon after - including John Boyega's Finn, who attack the village looking for the Rebels. Dameron is captured by the Imperials, Finn is imprisoned by Kylo Ren (Star Wars names!) for allowing villagers to flee during the fight. Poe and Finn bond while being held in the brig of a Star Destroyer, before hatching a plan to escape together in a TIE Fighter.

SPOILER: There is a spaceship in this movie.

As ever, take this all with a pinch of salt. [Making Star Wars]

Or don't! JJ Abrams, speaking to the BBC, had this to say about the process of making The Force Awakens and the bevy of rumors around the film:

We did the best we can to preserve the story for the audience, but it doesn't always work.

There are a ton of rumors — some true, some false. But I'm grateful for everyone who would want to read a spoiler because it means that they care and want to see the movie.

So somewhere out there is a true spoiler for Episode VII. Somewhere. [ BBC]

It's official that Carrie Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, has a role in The Force Awakens. And apparently it's a big enough part that it impressed J.J. Abrams. He told E! Online: "I've known Billie since she was six or something... So to see her...I can't believe that she's this young woman who's clearly going into the stratosphere." [E! Online]

SO if you've read this far, maybe this stuff is all true and you will find out whenever the hell the movie comes out.  Or, it will all be as fake as the damn swords made of light that all these people will be swinging around.  

We will see.
