INT. FIRST ORDER SPACE BRIG

The captive rebel fighter POSEPH DAMERON kneels in a dark room. He is exhausted, battered, looking beaten—but there is fire yet behind his eyes.

The doors open with a shooomp. It is KYLE REN, the dark vader.

POSEPH
I’ll never talk. Don’t even try—you’ll only waste your breath.

KYLE
Word. I just wanted to show you something.

Poseph looks up, expectant. Kyle lurches forward… and grabs Poseph’s head between his hands. Poseph SCREAMS…

…and sees a vision.

We see the REBEL HOMEWORLD, ripped with winds that seem unnatural, impossible, destructive beyond our wildest imaginations. The clouds are RUST RED, and an ominous HUM bears down from somewhere beyond the atmosphere. The trees are swept up into DUST. Towers crumble in cacophony. There is a chorus of TEN BILLION SCREAMS

POSEPH
No!!!!

And then SILENCE.

Poseph SNAPS OUT OF IT. He is sweating. It takes a beat for him to register, in front of him, the standing form of Kyle Ren, CLOAK SPREAD WIDE…

KYLE
What do you think?

POSEPH
(beat)
I, um—

Kyle Ren shuffles uncomfortably. Viewed from behind, we see the barest hint of MILKY THIGH FLESH.

POSEPH
…I don’t understand the crossguards.

EXT. NEO-DESERT PLANET

Gliding across the barren landscape we see REY ORGANA-CALRISSIAN, adopted daughter of Han Solo and reluctant Jedi, leaned back casually yet resolute, driving her COOL JET FLOATCRUISER. We linger on the cylinder in her lap, a modest-sized CUP FROM A GAS STATION, full of limited-edition PEPSI STAR WAR (BLUE FLAVOR). A straw protrudes, and Rey SIPS.

The soda FIZZES and GLISTENS, catching the rays of the distant TWIN SUNS, refracting them majestically, with sparkles, and lens flare.

BB-8 (O.S.)
*squawks adorably*

REY
Aw, who’s the cutest little robot?

Rey pets the droid wedged at her side in the narrow pilot’s seat of the floatcruiser. BB-8 meets her gaze. The droid’s eyes are remarkably soulful—we are all reminded very pointedly of WALL-E.

REY
You’re the cutest little robot.

BB-8
Woop

REY
The cutest widdle wobot in the whole wide fweakin’ gawaxy.

BB-8
Wark!

Rey bends the straw of her soda toward the reach of BB-8, who slurps eagerly.

BB-8
Weeble-wobble blahp bloop, blorp! [Subtitles onscreen read “PEPSI PEPSI PEPSI.”]

Rey SMILES.

CUT TO:

INT: SPACEWHIP

KYLE REN, the dark vader, stands on the bridge with his mask and cape on, sulking. In his hand he holds an unopened bottle of PEPSI STAR WAR (RED FLAVOR). At his side is the legendary CAPTAIN PHAZER, fully chrome.

KYLE
Captain Phazer…
[beat]
Um, could you?

Kyle Ren hands the PEPSI bottle to his cohort, gesturing for help opening it. She cracks the seal after the slightest struggle. The resulting hiss of air is emphasized.

KYLE
Thank you, Phazer. I was feeling very parched. This is just what I needed to refresh myself.

He sips, passes the opened bottle back to Phazer.

KYLE
How goes the hunt for Jedi scum?

Phazer takes a long quaff of the PEPSI.

PHAZER
Excellently, my lord Kyle.

INT. SPACEWHIP

Stormtrooper Captain Phazer walks onto the populated bridge in a full rigout, with a smokin’ hot BFG from Doom slung over her shoulder. We linger on her kickass chrome armor. She looks sick. But also sick with purpose. She walks up and hands a glowy hologram data ball ORB THING to a HOODED FIGURE. It is Kyle Ren, the dark vader.

PHAZER
“Sir, many Bothans died to bring you these deets.”

REN
“Oh, word?”

Kyle Ren calls for a moment of silence.
