The history of the film starts from a past of more than thirty years since the fall of the Galactic Empire, defeated by the Rebel Alliance. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) has disappeared, but there is a map that reveals where the last surviving Jedi warrior is. Many of the heroes before, Leia (Carrie Fisher), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Chewbacca, R2-D2 and C-3PO, are still active and fighting in the resistance. And is that tyranny and oppression have not ended in the galaxy, which is still at war. A New Republic has emerged, although its government is fragile, a mere puppet. Taking advantage of the instability of the political system and the differences of the various republican currents, a mysterious warrior, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), obsessed with killing the Jedi, threatens the galactic peace. The sinister Ren leads the First Order, a force loyal to the memory of Lord Vader and Palpatine, emerged from the ashes of the Galactic Empire.
