Devin Faraci at Badass Digest claims to know the plot of the film. He keeps some details vague, but there is a basic outline that mirrors A New Hope in a few ways.
It does fit in with a few things we’ve heard, like the involvement of Han Solo in a search for Luke Skywalker, and at least one thing we know: Daisy Ridley and John Boyega on a desert planet. But it also raises a few, let’s say sciencey, questions.
Is it plausible? In a galaxy where we have things like sound in space, sure. I guess. Could it be true? No idea. As always, I’m skeptical, but it’s an interesting nugget to hold onto regardless, even if we end up laughing about it in the future.
UPDATE: Faraci follows up with a few more details – including some things we’ve also heard elsewhere about Boyega’s character.
A few more nuggets from Faraci – possible spoilers, etc. – below the cut:
