Star Wars: The Force Awakens script
Synopsis: Thirty years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and his young allies face a new threat from the evil Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order.

EXT. LARGE HUT - NIGHT

The men exit fast. Poe moves TO CAMERA, raises QUADNOCULARS.

POE'S POV:
LIGHTS on the horizon -- approaching ENEMY SHIPS.

POE lowers the quadnocs -- PUSH IN ON HIS UNNERVED EYES. A

GROWING, FRIGHTENING THUNDER.

POE:

You have to hide.

LOR SAN TEKKA:

You have to leave. Go!

Poe turns to him. Conflicted. Finally nods, hurries off.

BB-8 follows.

EXT. JAKKU VILLAGE - NIGHT

TRACK FAST with Poe as he and BB-8 hurry through the village,

various ARMED VILLAGERS taking position, prepared to defend.

EXT. JAKKU VILLAGE - NIGHT

A ROAR of WIND and DUST: the TRANSPORTS LAND. Stormtroopers

come out FIRING BLASTERS -- the VILLAGERS FIRE BACK -- many

are HIT!

EXT. RISE ADJACENT TO VILLAGE - NIGHT

Poe runs to an X-WING fighter, parked at a distance from the

village, hidden behind a ROCK OUTCROPPING.

POE:

Come on, BB-8! Hurry!

Poe sends BB-8 into the droid socket / co-pilot seat -- he

moves to the cockpit -- the CONTROLS COME TO LIFE. As the

CANOPY CLOSES, Poe shoots a quick look back: the ENEMY ARRIVES

IN THE DISTANCE.

Poe urgently works the controls -- BB-8 BEEPS.

The X-WING LANDING LIGHTS COME ON, ENGINES WHINE TO LIFE!

But just then:

Poe's ship is suddenly HIT BY BLASTERFIRE! Poe turns to

look:
two STORMTROOPERS CHARGE HIS WAY, FIRING!

POE (CONT'D)

I see 'em!

BB-8 BEEPS nervously as Poe GRABS HIS CONTROLS and FIRES AT

THEM, using the X-wing's drop-down antipersonnel blaster!

The two Troopers are BLOWN AWAY in the large BLAST HITS!

Poe tries to start the ship now, but the ENGINES SPUTTER.

Concerned, he opens his canopy, jumps down, moves to the

back of his ship: BAD DAMAGE ON THE REAR ENGINE PANEL.

They're in trouble.
