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

Upon attempting a rescue mission, Finn and Han infiltrate the First Order base, only to find Rey has escaped on her own. But when Han comes face-to-
face with Kylo Ren, his son betrays him once and for all….
