Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens begins thirty years after the defeat of Darth Vader during the Galactic Civil War, where the First Order has risen from the fallen Galactic Empire and seeks to eliminate the New Republic.
The Resistance, backed by the Republic and led by General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher), opposes the First Order. While Leia skirmishes with the First Order, she is searching for her brother, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), the last remaining Jedi who has gone into hiding.
In the meantime, legendary smugglers Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and his sidekick Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) stumble upon the long lost Millennium Falcon which was being piloted by Rey (Daisy Ridley) a scavenger from the planet Jakku and Finn (John Boyega), a renegade stormtrooper posing as a Resistance fighter.
Together with their new young allies the legendary smugglers are thrown into the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the daunting legions of the First Order led by the evil Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).
