Star Wars: The Force Awakens Script Leaks Online

A "final script" for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has leaked online.

The script was apparently leaked after being sent to members of the Writers Guild Association and has been confirmed by Lucasfilm's Peter Hidalgo on Twitter as well as a profressional screenwriter on Reddit to be legit.

"It's legit. It came directly to us WGA members from Disney," the Redditor posted.

"So if you can see the WGA script, yes, the name of the planet from the end of the movie is there," Pablo Hildago posted New Year's Day on Twitter.

Check out the opening movie text as well as the description of the final scene.

Opening text:

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....

End scene:


Rey arrives at a clearing. Small, modest, primitive stone structures. But no one around. Rey walks past them, sees, senses no one.

And then she stops. Feels something. She turns. Standing forty feet away from her, his back to us, is a MAN, in a CLOAK AND ROBE.

Rey stares, knowing exactly who it is. But she just stares for what seems like forever. Until he finally TURNS, SLOWLY, to her. Pulls back his hood.


Older now, white hair, bearded. He looks at Rey. A kindness in his eyes, but there's something tortured, too. He doesn't need to ask her who she is, or what she is doing here. His look says it all.

In response, Rey pulls something from the pack. LUKE'S LIGHTSABER.

And she holds it out to him. An offer. A plea. The galaxy's only hope.

HOLD ON LUKE SKYWALKER'S INCREDIBLE FACE, amazed and conflicted at what he sees, as our MUSIC BUILDS, the promise of an adventure, just beginning...
