4 min

A long time ago in a galaxy far,

far away....



Episode Vll / b


Luke Skywalker has vanished.

In his absence, the sinister

FIRST ORDER has risen from

the ashes of the Empire

and will not rest until

Skywalker, the last Jedi,

has been destroyed.

With the support of the

REPUBLIC, General Leia Organa

leads a brave RESISTANCE.

She is desperate to find her

brother Luke and gain his

help in restoring peace

and justice to the galaxy.

Leia has sent her most daring

pilot on a secret mission

to Jakku, where an old ally

has discovered a clue to

Luke's whereabouts . . . .

This will begin to make things right.

I've traveled too far

and seen too much

to ignore the despair

in the Galaxy.

Without the Jedi, there can be

no balance in the Force.

Well, because of you,

now we have a chance.

The general has been after

for this for a long time.

The General?

To me she's royalty.

Well, she certainly is that.

We got company.

You have to hide.

You have to leave.


Get out!

Go! Go! Go!

Come on BB-8, hurry!

Blast that X-wing!

Fire! Fire!

Someone is coming behind us.

I see him!

And take this, it's safer

with you than it's with me.

You get as far away

from here as you can.

- Do you hear me?

- I don't know...

I'll come back for you!

We'll be alright!

Keep moving!

Stay here.

Look how old you'd become.

Something far worse

has happened to you.

You know what I've come for.

I know where you come from.

Before you you call 'Kylo Ren'.

The Map, to Skywalker.

We know you found it.

And now you're going to

give it to the First Order.

The First Order rose

from the dark side.

You did not.

I'll show you

the dark side.

You may try.

But you cannot deny the truth

that is your family.

You're so right.

So, who talks first?

Do you talk first? I talk first?

The old man gave it to you.

It's very hard to understand you

with all the...

- Search him.

- I'm more than...

- Nothing, sir.

- Bring him on board.

Sir, the villagers?

Kill them all.

On my command.



Nothing here!

Eliminate it!





Submit your blaster for inspection.

Yes, Captain.

And who gave you permission

to remove that helmet?

I'm sorry, Captain.

Report to my division at once.

What you brought me today

is worth...

One quarter portion.



Oh, thank you.


That's just a Teedo.

Wants you for parts.

He has no respect for anyone.


Your antenna's bent.

Where'd you come from?

I am not suppose to tell,

it's classified.

- Classified, really?

- Yup.

Me too.

Big secret.

Niima Outpost is that way.

Stay off Kelvin Ridge.

Keep away from the

sinking fields in the North

or you'll drown in the sand.

You are so very kind.

I would like to come with you.

Don't follow me.

The town is that way.


Then, can I stay with you?


I am scared.


In the morning, you go.

Thank you, again.

You're welcome.

I have no idea we had the best pilot

in the Resistance on board.

You comfortable?

Not really.

I'm impressed.

No one has been able

to get out of you

what you did with the map.

You might want to

rethink your technique.

Where is it?

The Resistance will not be

intimidated by you.

Where is it?


It's in a droid.

A BB unit.

Well then, if it's on Jakku,

we'll soon have it.

I leave that to you.

Don't give up hope.

He still might show up.

Whoever it's you're waiting for.


I know all about waiting

For my family.

They'll be back,

one day.

Come on.

These five pieces are worth...

Let me see...

One half portion.
