Apparent Star Wars: Episode VIII Script Leak Reveals Rey's True Identity

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

A Reddit user claiming to have read the script for Star Wars: Episode VIII has stuck the details online, in a post that’s jam-packed with potential spoilers. It might turn out to be harmless fan-fiction, but I’m not going to risk ruining the movie for you by re-publishing all the details here.

What I will say is that the movie's said to be called Echoes of the Dark Side, and sheds plenty of light on Rey’s mysterious background. It also apparently features Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker and a doozy of a plot twist.

Most readers have reacted positively to the post, with many claiming they’d be happy if it turned out to be the real deal. Star Wars: Episode VII is set to hit the big screen on 15 December 2017, so there’s plenty of time to check out the apparent leak and forget about everything before actually watching the movie.
