Star Wars: The Force Awakens

 So yours truly finally went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens... I had to see that of course, having grown up on the rest of the series... Sadly no one invited me to go to watch the premiere, so I had to go watch it with my family...

And well, it was good...I enjoyed the story and I want to go watch it again... 

Here is the sypnosis and the whole story aka spoilers of the movie... so do not read after this if you don't want to know more....

Thirty years have passed after the destruction of the second Death Star and Luke Skywalker, the last known surviving Jedi, has since disappeared. Both the First Order, a successor to the fallen Galactic Empire, and the Resistance, a military force backed by the New Republic and led by Luke's twin sister, General Leia Organa, desperately search the galaxy to find him.

Resistance pilot Poe Dameron was arrive on a secret mission to the village of Tuanul on the desert planet Jakku, to meet with village elder Lor San Tekka, who had obtained a star-chart to Luke Skywalker's location. 

Just as their meeting concludes, the First Order stormtroopers under the command of Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma attacks the village. Poe and his droid BB-8 attempted to flee in their X-Wing starfighter, but finds the engines destroyed. With no alternative, Poe gave the star-chart to BB-8 and orders BB-8 to flee. Poe covers BB-8's escape.

After stormtrooper FN-2187 was deployed, one of his Stormtrooper pals was hit with blaster fire by Poe. FN-2187 went to help his squadmate, but the other Stormtrooper’s wound was fatal, and before he died, he swiped his bloodied fingers on FN-2187's helmet  leaving a trail of blood. This deeply affects the stormtrooper, and when ordered by Kylo Ren to kill the villagers, he refused to fire. 

When Poe tries to shoot Ren, the Knight casually caught the blaster bolt in mid-air with the Force. Poe was then taken prisoner, while the rest of the villagers were all killed.

Returning to the Finalizer, FN-2187 did not feel good from the mission, and Phasma noticed his distress. She told him to submit his blaster to be checked, to check if he had fired a shot. Knowing he would be re-evaluated and discovered for not firing on the villagers, and with his faith severely shaken in the First Order, he decided to desert.

After failed attempts of getting information from Pow about the star-chart of Luke Skywalker's location, Ren used his mind probe Force power to get the information from Poe in his head. Ren learned that the star-charts were located within BB-8, and informed General Hux about the revelation.

In a different place somewhere else, on Jakku, a female scavenger named Rey was going through the corridors of a downed Star Destroyer at the Graveyard of Giants. 

Scavenging through the Star Destroyer, she finds a piece of salvage and dropped it in her satchel. She then goes to Niima Outpost, and drags her sack of salvage through the town to Unkar Plutt to exchange her scraps for foodstuff, who just gives her a quarter portion for her scraps. After taking the food, Rey heads home, to a downed AT-AT, and makes dinner for herself. After finishing her meal, she hears something, and runs off with her quarterstaff to check it out.

She finds BB-8 struggling from being captured by a green-skinned humanoid scavenger named Teedo. She releases the droid and gave him directions to Niima Outpost and sent it on its way, but BB-8 insists on traveling with her. 

Rey heads over to Unkar Plutt to yet again exchange her salvage for food, and the Crolute offered to buy BB-8 with a payment of sixty food portions. For a while  she was tempted, but finally Rey turned down the offer. Plutt then orders two of his men to steal BB-8.

FN-2187 frees the captured Poe Dameron from his cell, and the two steal a Special Forces TIE fighter. FN-2187 manned the guns, killing several of his former comrades in the hanger, and then disabling the Finalizer's turbolasers. 

While escaping, Poe asked the stormtrooper his name, to which he replied with his number. Not used with calling a man a number, Poe names the trooper "Finn," from the FN in his name. Finn likes the name, and decides to use it from thereon. Poe tells Finn that the map vital to the Resistance was located within his droid. The TIE was hit by a missile fired from the Finalizer, sending it spiraling towards the planet below.

Finn and Poe were thrown from the TIE shortly before it crashed, each one landing separately some distance from the wreck. Finn made his way to the crash, where he found Poe's jacket, but no other sign of the man, and the fighter sunk into the sand. Thinking Poe to be dead, he discarded his armor , put on Poe’s jacket and made his way to the nearest settlement for water.

Unkar Plutt’s men tries to steal BB-8, but Rey fended off the thugs with her staff. BB-8 notices a man wearing his master, Poe's jacket, and prompting Rey to chase after the man, Finn. Rey attacked Finn, believing him to be a thief. Finn explained that he had met and helped Poe escape the Finalizer, but that Poe might have died during their crash.

The First Order tracks Finn to the settlement, and launches an airstrike in attempt to search for BB-8 and the map. Rey, Finn, and BB-8 successfully escape Jakku in the Millennium Falcon by flying it through the Graveyard of Giants while Finn fired on and destroyed the pursuing TIE fighters. With the TIE fighters destroyed, they escaped into space.

The Falcon however breaks down and left them stranded. The ship was in major need of repairs, so Finn, Rey and the BB-8 began working on fixing it. While they were working on the repairs, the ship was caught in a tractor beam by a freighter. 

Initially believing themselves to be captured by the First Order, they meet their real captors: Han Solo and Chewbacca, the former owners of the ship. 

Upon boarding their old vessel, Han and Chewie went about inspecting their ship and found two stowaways, Rey and Finn, who he assumes were the thieves that had stolen the Falcon.

When Rey and Finn said that they were taking BB-8 to the Resistance as he had a map that would reveal Luke's location, Han and Chewie agree to help them.

Unfortunately, Han's freighter, the Eravana had been boarded by two notorious criminal factions, the Guavian Death Gang and Kanjiklub, whom Solo was indebted to. 

While trying to protect Rey and Finn from getting involved, Han placed both of them in the lower corridors of the freighter while he and Chewie went to meet with the criminals, with BB-8 accompanying them. The smuggler tried but failed to convince both parties that he would fix things eventually, with the Guavian Death Gang negotiator, Bala-Tik recognizing the BB-8 droid from a First Order bounty placed on it. They demanded that Han hand over the droid and the stowaways he have on board.

As the scuffle continued, Rey accidentally released three rathtars. They successfully escaped the gangs and jumped into hyperspace in the Falcon. Bala-tik then ordered his men to inform the First Order that Han Solo and the droid unit are aboard the ship.

At Starkiller Base, a planet is being converted into a superweapon, powered by draining the sun, and capable of destroying star systems, Kylo Ren and General Hux are summoned by Supreme Leader Snoke. Hux suggested to use the Starkiller Base superweapon to destroy the government of the New Republic and the Resistance. Snoke granted Hux the permission to do so. Snoke tells Ren that the droid containing the star-chart now resides in the Millenium Falcon along with his father, Han Solo. Ren insists that his father means nothing to him, and with Snoke's training, he cannot be seduced to the light side of the Force.

Han explained that Luke tried to rebuild the Jedi Order, but when one of his nephew and apprentice was seduced to the dark side and became Kylo Ren, destroying all that Luke had built, as well as killing all the other Padawans that Luke had trained.

Feeling responsible and blaming himself for that failure, Luke went into self exile.

Hans then brought Rey, Finn, and BB-8 to the planet Takodana to meet with Maz Kanata at her castle. Han said that she had run her castle for over a thousand years. Unbeknownst to all, spies from different sides have taken notice of the group.

Bazine Netal alerted the First Order, and a droid spy alerted the Resistance. While Han and Chewie spoke with Maz, Finn headed out to trying make a deal of his own as we wanted to get far far away from the First Order as he could. Finn hired Sidon Ithano and his first mate Quiggold to take him away to the Outer Rim for work. Rey begged Finn not to leave, but to help the Resistance instead. Finn, however, insisted on leaving.

Kylo Ren sits quietly in his meditation chamber with the burned helmet of Darth Vader in front of him, recovered from the funeral pyre on Endor. With the re-emergence of his father and his failed attempts to recover the map of Luke, Kylo senses a disturbance in the Force.

He tells Vader's burned helmet that the light is pulling him in again, and that even Snoke could sense the conflict brewing within him. He then asked his grandfather to show him the darkness again, and to pull him back to the dark side of the Force.

After Finn leaves, Rey hears the screams of a young girl and finds herself wandering deeper into the Castle to find the source. She wanders into a sub-chamber that was filled with relics of the past. There she was called by the Force to a lightsaber that had previously belonged to Anakin Skywalker and then his son Luke.

When she touches the lightsaber, she received a series of visions. Rey glimpses moments in time from the saber, in which she found herself in Cloud City where Luke battled Darth Vader, she then saw Luke placing his metallic hand on top of R2-D2 near a fire, and then she found herself lying in the rain at night and woke up to see the Knights of Ren surrounded by slaughtered victims.

She then sees herself as a child watching the departure of her parents, yelling out to them to come back, and being told to quiet herself. Rey also finds herself being chased by Kylo Ren in a snowy forest. Rey pulled herself out of the vision in terror. Maz Kanata, watching her explains to her the lightsaber's history and that it was now calling to her. 

Frightened by her vision, Rey refused to keep the lightsaber, running off into the woods with BB-8.


After gaining Supreme Leader Snoke's permission to fire the Starkiller Base's superweapon, Hux chose the Hosnian system, which hosted the capital of the New Republic, Hosnian Prime, as well as the New Republic Starfleet, in order to demonstrate the power of the First Order in an attempt to wipe out the "illegitimate" government of the New Republic in one fell swoop. The test was a success and Hosnian Prime, home of the Galactic Senate, all other astronomical bodies in the system, and an unknown percentage of the New Republic fleet were annihilated by the First Order's superweapon. 

The destruction of the Hosnian system was visible from the surface of Takodana. This prompted Finn to re-evaluate his choice to leave.

The First Order, tipped off with BB-8's presence, arrives and attacks Maz Kanata's castle. Flying in with TIE fighters and Atmospheric Assault Landers, the First Order swiftly assaults the castle and levels it, killing many of its inhabitants. BB-8 followed Rey into the forests surrounding the castle, and the First Order was unable to locate the droid until a stormtrooper officer reported to Kylo Ren that the droid had been sighted in the company of a girl.

During the fighting at the castle, despite killing multiple stormtroopers, Han, Chewbacca, and Finn were captured by the First Order. However. Resistance T-70 X-wing fighters led by Poe, arrives to fight the First Order. A fierce battle ensues and resulted in the destruction of many First Order TIEs and the deaths of many stormtroopers.

Rey encounters Kylo Ren at the woods, and shoot at him with her blaster pistol, but Kylo restrains her using the Force, and captures her. Kylo then orders the First Order to pull out, saying they had what they came for. As the battle raged on above the castle, the remaining First Order troops boards their ships and retreats, taking the captured and unconscious Rey along with them.

Han, Chewbacca, and Finn are brought to the Resistance base on D'Qar. BB-8 meets R2-D2, who, as C-3PO explains, has been dormant since Luke's disappearance. 

Han and Leia reminisced over the past and mourn over their son's fall to the Dark Side that also caused them to separate, with Han returning to his smuggling business, and Leia spearheading the activities of the New Republic and the Resistance.

As Starkiller Base prepared to wipe out the world of D'Qar, the site of the Resistance's headquarters, the Resistance plans an attack of their own. Finn had given them the Base's blueprints, which revealed a critical weak point that, if destroyed, would eliminate the Base. However, they would need to do it before the base fully charged its weapon.
Rey was brought to the Starkiller Base and interrogated by Kylo Ren, wanting information on the map to Luke Skywalker. However Kylo  has a difficult time trying to probe her mind, and Rey was also able to reach into Ren's mind. In the silence and intensity of the moment, Rey mentally fights back and, with an intense gaze, told him that she sensed his fear at being weaker than his maternal grandfather Darth Vader. Upon realizing that she was Force-sensitive, she used a mind trick on her stormtrooper guard, allowing her to escape. Rey then made her way through the Starkiller Base, honing her Force abilities while using stealth.

Kylo tells Snoke that Rey has the ability to use the Force, and Snoke commands Kylo to bring Rey to him. When Kylo discovers that Rey has escaped, he threw a fit of rage.

Han Solo pilots the Millennium Falcon to Starkiller Base accompanied by Chewbacca and Finn. Their objective is to disable the shields and allow the X-Wing squadron to strike, although Finn's main objective was to rescue Rey. Flying through the shields at lightspeed, the Falcon landed roughly on the edge of a cliff.

Han, Chewbacca, and Finn snuck into the main base and captures Captain Phasma, who they forced to disable the shields before disposing her in a garbage chute. They reunite with Rey, who had already escaped on her own. With the shields down, Blue Squadron and Red Squadron led by Poe Dameron commenced their assault. They fired on the base's weakpoint, but failed to destroy it as the First Order sent TIE Fighters to stage a counterattack and throw the Resistance into chaos.

Seeing this, Han, Chewbacca, Finn, and Rey tries to create an opening by planting thermal detonators inside the base. Han then confronted his son, Kylo Ren, named Ben at birth, on a bridge over a large pit, pleading with his son to reject Snoke and return to the light side of the Force. Ben, removes his mask and seems almost regretful, handed his lightsaber to Solo, and asks for his father's help, in which Solo replied that he would do anything for him. Ben then thrust his weapon through his father's chest.

Witnessed by a disbelieving Rey, Finn, and Chewbacca, Han stroked his son's face for the last time, before falling to his death. Devastated, Chewbacca, Rey and Finn start firing at Ren and the stormtroopers. Chewbacca hurts Kylo with his bowcaster, but Kylo chases them out of the base.

Kylo Ren catches up with Finn and Rey in the forest, and knocks Rey out by Force pushing her into a tree. An angered Finn pulls out Luke's old lightsaber and attacks Ren in a rage. 

However, Ren easily overpowers the former stormtrooper and gives him a grievous injury. Suddenly, Rey uses telekinesis to pull the Skywalker's lightsaber into her hand and attacked Ren.

During this time, the thermal detonators went off in the base, allowing Poe to fly in and destroy the base's weak point thirty seconds before it drained the sun to charge the superweapon. This caused a chain reaction to go off, which destroyed the base and levels the entire planet's terrain.

Rey and Kylo continues fighting, and Kylo initially held the advantage. However, by calling on the Force, Rey was able to overpower Kylo and deals him a severe wound while breaking his lightsaber. They get separated, when a minor earthquake happens and a trench formed between them.

Rey returned to Finn and began to worry when Finn would not wake up and they were trapped on the rupturing planet. However, Chewbacca arrives with the Millennium Falcon to rescue them. 

Inside the main base, chaos abounded as General Hux had departed and there was no way for anyone to escape. Hux, meanwhile, reports back to Snoke, who orders him to rescue Kylo in order to complete his training and to flee the Base. 

The Millennium Falcon and the remainder of the Resistance fleet manages to escape the Starkiller Base as it erupts into a ball of fire, and enters hyperspace to return to D'Qar.

The Resistance celebrates their victory while Leia, Chewbacca, and Rey mourns Han's death. R2-D2 suddenly came to life and revealed to all that he held the rest of map to Luke's location, with the only piece of the map missing being the one BB-8 was given by Poe. Together they completed the map and revealed the location of Ahch-to, the planet on which Luke Skywalker was hiding.

Finn is unconscious but recovering in the medical unit, and Rey kisses him on the head and thanked him for everything as he slept. Then together with R2-D2 and Chewbacca in tow, Rey follows the map to the distant planet, and journeys across the island of the planet, which she had previously seen in her visions. She finally finds Luke and presents him with his old lightsaber.

And that my dearies was the end of the story…. But what bothers me most is…. Who is Rey… Initially I thought she was Kylo Ren’s sister , but both Han and General/ Princess Leia did not seem to acknowledge her… Or could she be Luke’s daughter?!!

Haiyooooo……. Got to wait for the next movie to find out I guess… or can anyone tell me… LOL
