> The "Resistance" is now the "Galactic Army" and are just that, an army.
> The old man Kylo Ren kills at the Jakku base is Poe's father.
> Ren can freeze blaster shots with a lot of concentration but cannot freeze people.
> BB-8 has the full map to Luke all in one piece, as the fragmented map idea really makes no sense. Poe’s father received the map from Luke Skywalker as they were friends, in case they ever needed to find him. Luke intentionally didn’t want Han or Leia to know his whereabouts.
> Snoke is removed entirely and General Hux fills the position as the one who started the First Order. Hux greatly respects the dark side of the force and the “glorious” empire but he and Kylo Ren still clash. An obvious power struggle between the two.
> Ren was unintentionally lead to the dark side by Luke who began to toy with it. Realising his mistake and being unable to face Han and Leia knowing what he did to their son. He exiled himself, trying to reconnect with the light side. It’s implied Luke was training other Jedi’s and they were slaughtered by Kylo Ren.
> Ren started a group of pro dark side sympathises known as the knights of Ren, responsible for tracking down any light side force uses and killing them. It is revealed that Ren’s saber is a modified version of Vader’s saber as it was damaged, however due to Ren’s inexperience the saber is not correctly made (hence the fiery nature of it) and cannot be ignited for too long as it would react badly and possible destroy itself.
> The First Order are more like the Rebels in the original trilogy as they are way weaker than the New Republic, There is no death star 3.0 or Emperor 2.0. Less rehashing. The Galactic Army has been looking for the Order’s main base for years as they are slowly getting more powerful and they can no longer shrug them off as a non-threat.
> Fin has killed good guys before, and kills on Jakku before stopping and thinking about what he's done, where he is later berated in front of other Stormtroopers by Captain Phasma and they all call him a pussy for having emotions.
> Fin tells Poe that he needs him because he can’t fly. Poe replying that he was hoping he’d say “because it was the right thing to do”.
> When Fin meets Rey, he is discovering his free range of emotions for the first time, a running theme of the film would be Fin realising how certain emotions affect him.
> Fin lies to Rey about being in the Galactic Army and that he needs to return BB-8 for a friend. Rey talks about her depressing past with someone important leaving her and how she's always wanted to be part of the Army, thrilled to hear that she's with a member of the army.
> Rey can't fly at all and hasn't ever used a blaster, however is extremely knowledgeable at mechanics and good at hand to hand combat.
> Fin spots Stormtroopers looking around the village and says he can help her escape. When asked why, he states “Because it’s the right thing to do.”
> When Fin and Rey are escaping, BB-8 see’s Poe who is being questioned by the Scrapyard owner (who wants to trade him to the First Order for a cash reward), a fist fight breaks out to save him, Fin just gets in the way while Rey holds her own.
> They escape in a clunky Scrapheap Collector Ship instead of the Falcon. The ship would be the garbage truck/tugboat equivalent of spaceships. With Poe flying, Fin shooting and Rey trying to remove the hyper drive limiter (That's there to prevent ships from being stolen.)
> Fin has inner conflict about killing other Stormtroopers, having PTSD like break downs confusing him in the midst of the dog fight.
> After escaping they all congratulate each other and see their friendships strengthen, Poe shamelessly hits on Rey, but she's a stronk women and blows him off.
> We get down time on the ship and the three mains discuss stuff. Rey now debates leaving Jakku revealing it was her parents who left her and can’t shake the possibility of them returning to find her. Fin is the one to convince her she’s doing the right thing. Saying that whoever left her there, did so too long ago to come back now. It’s also established that Fin has no idea what parents are, due to the Stormtrooper program where they were stolen as children.
> Poe talks about his family's long history with the rebellion and the Army and how he can't let them down. Here you’d see that Poe’s natural charming and quirky self can get completely overridden when he has a mission to do, going “commando mode” when things need to be done. Making him a little more different from Han Solo.
> We get glimpses of Kylo Ren talking to some off screen object like a madman and only towards the end of the film is it revealed to be the mask of Darth Vader. Ren truly believes he is communicating with Vader’s force ghost.
> Poe says that due to him being stationed on Jakku he has no idea where the secret base is but thinks he might know where to find someone who does know. Landing on the forest planet, getting a scene where an overly excited Rey experiences “greenness” for the first time and Fin has an emotional reaction to being on such a beautiful planet.
> They go to that forest bar place and find Han who looks pretty washed up sitting in a booth with Chewy drinking.
> Han’s still married to Leia but tired of being tied to the rebellion and the Army and has secretly gone back into smuggling on the side, much to Leia's dismay. Their relationship is rocky but still operational.
> Chewie actually looks older and rougher. A budding friendship is implied between Chewie and Fin.
> Han blows them off before they bring up Luke’s map and he takes them to the Falcon. As they leave the bar they are watched by a suspicious alien.
> Han show’s them Luke’s Lightsaber and tells of how Lando found it on Cloud City. Brings up that Lando (who became a well-known war hero and political figure) was assassinated a few years back.
> When recounting the story, Han questions how Poe escaped the First Order at which point it is revealed to everyone that Fin was a Stormtrooper. Rey feels betrayed. Han puts a gun to Fin’s head, saying if he fucks up even in just a small way he will personally kill him.
> The Falcon needs to be repaired slightly before leaving, Han, Chewie and Poe talk while Rey goes to fix something else. Han give’s Poe and Rey guns but denies Fin one.
> Fin show’s Rey how to use a blaster while apologising for having to lie to her, talking about being raised to do nothing but kill and how he couldn’t help but feel different from the others. He asks her to come with him to the outer rim saying that they don’t belong with the Army as they will be hunted down by the First Order. She declines trying to get Fin to do what’s right but Fin admits that he’s always been a coward. Fin leaves to find someone who can take him to the outer rim.
> That suspicious alien and a rival smuggling gang show up and say they are tired of not getting their money and spotted Han with the fugitives so they want him to turn them over so they can take them to the first order.
> First Order arrives and we get a fun three way battle between our main characters and the backup X-Wings, the First Order and the rival smugglers.
> Fin changes his mind and tries to go back, finding the Saber on a dead smuggler who had disarmed Han and the gang.
> Fin subdues a fellow Stormtrooper in the midst of the battle to try and let him see he doesn't have to be a mindless soldier, the trooper doesn't give a fuck and keeps trying to kill him “Traitor!’. Showing Fin that other Stormtroopers are too brainwashed and are lost causes.
> Fin then has the baton vs Lightsaber battle with Captain Phasma, the battle playing out identically as it does in the movie.
> Rey gets captured with BB-8 but, using her technical knowhow, puts BB into a coma like state before being captured. Poe see this. As she is placed on the ship Han sees Kylo Ren points his gun at him but freezes up and doesn’t take the shot.
> Escaping, we get a space dog fight where the remaining Tie Fighters need to be destroyed before they can arrive safely at the base. Fin and Poe use the Falcon gunners. Fin finally works up the courage to take out a Tie fighter.
> Leia berates Han for going missing for two days “as usual” accusing him of smuggling again. Han unconvincingly denies it but tells Leia how he came in contact with a map to Luke. Poe is introduced as the son of the old man on Jakku and its revealed he was a great friend to Luke and Leia. Poe sadly informs them of his death at the hands of Kylo Ren.
> With Fin giving the Army the location of the First Order base, Leia suggest they simply bomb it to stop them from getting to Luke, stating that its worth not finding Luke if it also stops Ren from finding him.
> Fin says he won't let Rey die for the greater good and promises he can get into the base, lower the radars so their ships can get close enough without getting fucked up and save Rey in the process. Fin will have to land far enough away and go to the base on foot to not be picked up on the radar. This would remove the hyper jumping onto the planet as it makes no sense given what we know about hyperspace from the previous films.
> Han convinces Leia that it’s the right thing to do and elects to go with Fin. Han telling Leia “If we just bomb them you know who we would be bombing” Leia responding with “Bring him back.”
> Poe gives Fin a GPS like device so he, his squad and any ships with the Army will know where he is and won’t blow him to shit, also being able to send a distress signal with it.
> Rey doesn't break out using the force nor uses the force at all, Ren simply senses it while interrogating her and leaves without a word.
> Fin, Han and Chewy find BB-8 just as some technicians fix him. They lower the shields and then release Rey from her cell from the control tower where she promptly runs off before they can get down to her cell.
> We find out Fin is force sensitive (like Leia) as he senses Rey and goes after her.
> Fin finds Rey who is shocked to find out Fin came back for her. Rey says she needs to kill Kylo Ren, that she feels it’s her calling but Fin informs her the base is about to be bombed and they need to leave. Poe and his squad then arrive and the attack commences.
> Han confronts Kylo Ren, the reveal of Ren being Han’s son would be Han shouting “Ben”. In their conversation we find out Ren had killed Lando in a vain attempt to show the First Order means business to the New Republic.
> This is also the first time we see Ren without his mask.
> Han’s death is largely the same but he doesn't fall into oblivion and Chewy goes full rage to recover his body and bring it back.
this is extremely autistic
> Fin uses the distress signal as soon as they come across Kylo Ren.
> Fin and Rey fight Kylo Ren at the same time (Fin with the Saber and Rey with a blaster) he still fucks Fin up.
> Rey is subdued and is about to get finished off when she manages to force the saber just a few feet closer in order to block his blow and kick him in his wound, running to Fin’s aid.
> Ren angrily gets back up, starting to charge at Rey. But as his Lightsaber has been deployed to long it blows up in his face. Disfiguring him similarly to in the released movie.
> The Falcon lands nearby due to Fin’s distress signal and Chewie and BB-8 run out to help Rey and an unconscious Fin onto the Falcon.
> When they arrive the whole Army is cheering as Leia waits for Han to emerge from the Falcon, Chewie walks up to her as she begins to silently cry. Placing his forehead on hers in weird sign of respect and sympathy for each other.
> In the medical bay Fin is alive and Rey comes to thank him for coming back for her as people have only ever left her, after embracing (Fin’s first hug ever) she grabs him and kisses him very briefly (also something Fin has never experienced.)
> There's an award ceremony, with Fin, Rey, Poe and Chewie all standing with medals but as it pans out it's revealed to be Han’s funeral.
> Leia decides to let Rey and Fin go find Luke. Poe declines as he has been promoted and has new responsibilities so Chewie must fly the ship.
> Chewie sits alone in the cockpit staring at the empty pilot’s chair.
> The end scene now takes place at night as Rey and Fin approach a black figure sitting in a meditation like position, silhouetted against a small fire. R2-D2 is there with him. The final shot is simply Luke half looking around to see who is there.
>Give it to an indie studio
>Hire a cast of unknowns
>make it as abstract as possible
>don't even use the Star Wars name
>release it for a one showing at an art house in some flyover state
>advertising budget amounts to the cost of a single ad on page 17 of a local paper
>don't release it on home media for at least 20 years
10/10 greatest film of all time

That's pretty fucking cool t b h senpai
