Episode VII, Part II

Luke Skywalker has vanished. In his absence, the sinister First Order has risen from the ashes of the Empire and will not rest until the last Jedi has been destroyed. Hidden inside the Resistance droid BB-8 is a partial map that may reveal the location of Skywalker that both the First Order and Resistance are searching desperately for.

With the help of Resistance fighter Poe Dameron, Finn has escaped his role as First Order stormtrooper FN-2187 and crash-lands on Jakku. Separated from Dameron, Finn meets Rey, a young scavenger who finds the missing droid BB-8.

Now hunted by Kylo Ren, Rey, Finn, and BB-8 commandeer a “garbage” freighter as they try to escape Jakku with their lives….
