Episode VII, Part V

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. The First Order and the Resistance are in desperate search of a map leading directly to Skywalker that is hidden inside the droid BB-8.

Finn, a former stormtrooper, and Rey, a young scavenger, become allies with the Resistance droid carrying the incomplete map to the missing Jedi, while befriending Rebellion heroes Han Solo and Chewbacca. After the group meets Han’s mentor Maz Kanata on the planet Takodana, the First Order attacks and destroys everything in sight. The Resistance arrives to save the day, but not before Kylo Ren himself kidnaps Rey.

Now, it is up to Han Solo, Finn, and the Resistance to save Rey from the evil clutches of the First Order….
