Synopsis

Space adventure. The evil First Order continue to seek out and destroy the heroic Resistance's spaceships, threatening to quash all opposition once and for all. General Leia Organa leads the rebels to a distant outpost on a salt-covered planet, where a big showdown takes place against the might of the First Order. Young scavenger-turned-Resistance fighter Rey, meanwhile, who has found Luke Skywalker living on an island on one of the galaxy's most obscure planets, tries to persuade him to train her in the ways of the Force, in which she is strong. Armed with certain new skills, Rey goes to confront Kylo Ren, formerly Ben Solo, who is in the service of Supreme Leader Snoke. Rey feels sure she can bring Ben back to the good side. At all turns, surprises lie in store for everyone.
