jj abrams episode 8 story

With a massive franchise like Star Wars, you would expect that Lucasfilm wants the entire story planned out. But after Rian Johnson‘s radical, controversial The Last Jedi threw Star Wars tradition out the window, fans began wondering if there even is a master plan.

The answer: there might have been a plan once, but not anymore. According to Last Jedi star Daisy Ridley, when Abrams signed on to direct 2015’s The Force Awakens, he also mapped out the entire story for the new Star Wars trilogy. But the original JJ Abrams Episode 8 story was scrapped by Johnson.

rey and poe romance

There are plenty of delusional Star Wars fans out there, and I like to think that I’m not one of them. But — and don’t judge me — I kind of ship Rey and Poe. Yes, I know they shared barely more than 10 seconds together in Star Wars: The Last Jedi! And yes, those 10 seconds basically consisted of them introducing themselves! But gosh darn it, if they don’t look cute together.

There’s a whole set of delusional Star Wars fans who are secretly hoping for a Rey and Poe romance and their clamoring for a love story has finally made its way to Star Wars: The Last Jedi star Daisy Ridley.
