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. JAKKU VILLAGE - NIGHT

Lor San Tekka moves sadly through the village as STORMTROOPERS

wielding FLAME THROWERS destroy structures. Surrendering

Villagers are ROUNDED UP. Penned ANIMALS panic.

EXT. RISE ADJACENT TO THE VILLAGE - NIGHT

Back at the X-wing, Poe kneels beneath his ship, pulls from

the leather sack a SMALL, OLD ARTIFACT which he inserts into

BB-8 -- the droid's MULTI-READER ENVELOPS it.

POE:

You take this. It's safer with you

than it is with me. You get as far

away from here as you can. Do you

hear me?

(BB-8 BEEPS, hesitates)

I'll come back for you! It will be

alright.

BB-8 watches Poe run off. BEEP-WHINES nervously, then turns

and heads off. Turns back once to look at Poe, then ROLLS

AWAY. Poe uses his blaster rifle to fire at incoming troopers

from cover.

EXT. JAKKU VILLAGE - NIGHT

The Troopers and villagers in battle -- as one Trooper is

HIT and goes down. Another -- OUR TROOPER -- KNEELS to help.

The hit trooper raises a torn, bloody glove -- his HUMAN

HAND visible -- and MARKS OUR STORMTROOPER'S MASK WITH BLOOD

just before he dies. Our Trooper, stands -- overwhelmed by

the battle.
