Star Wars Fans rejoice! Principal photography has wrapped on Episode VII and the great minds behind one of the biggest franchises in the world unveiled the title to the next installment in the series.
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
When we last saw our heroes, they were celebrating on Endor with the Ewoks (formerly cannibalistic teddy bears, seriously, they tried to eat Han Solo) Luke saw his father, Yoda and Obi Wan because he’d had too much punch and the saga seemed over. The good guys won, the Empire fell and everyone got turned up in the foreset.
Maybe that’s what they’re waking up from?
Can you imagine a Hangover style Star Wars movie?
EXT. DAY – FOREST OF ENDOR
We see the lush forest of ENDOR. Ewoks are tuckered out everywhere, the dying embers of their massive fires smoldering in the early daylight. One of them farts because even in a galaxy far far away farts are funny.
We see LUKE SKYWALKER doubled over, throwing up, HAN and LEIA nowhere to be seen.
He straightens up, avoiding stepping on their hosts as he walks around the forest floor, puzzled and queezy. He looks up at the sky, where the debris of the DEATH STAR looms.
He hears HAN yelling for CHEWIE. He stumbles down the rickety steps from the treehouse, his shirt opened and pants falling down his knees.
Kid! You seen Chewie?
(fixing his clothes)
Oh man, CHEWIE! What the hell happened last night? These little hairballs can seriously party.
Well, we did give them freedom from the Empire so…Where’s Leia?
(ignoring the question)
We have to find him.
I’m sure he’s fine.
(Finally looking at Luke)
What happened to your face?
What do you mean what happened to my face?
Naturally, the whole thing would de-evolve into a madcap quest around the galaxy to find a very drunk Chewbacca and Threepio stumbling around singing very vulgar Wookie bar songs while carrying Artoo like a mechanical keg. Maybe Lando Calrissian can be the Leslie Chow of it all.
We can all dream can’t we?
I’ll even recast everyone. Why not.
Episode VII opens December 2015
