J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII" is back on production track now that reports have claimed Harrison Ford is "back on his feet" to reprise his role as Han Solo. New reports have also added hype to the movie, claiming the sci-fi is said to focus on the search for the missing Jedi Master. Daisy Ridley and John Boyega will reportedly play a major role in this quest.

As previously reported by IBTimes, John Boyega was seen by insiders at the Pinewood Studios carrying a light saber during filming. Few speculated that this is because he would transition from being a rumoured Imperial Soldier to a Jedi midway through "Star Wars: Episode VII." Now a spoiler-rich report from Badassdigest could probably explain why the actor was carrying a light saber.
The site revealed the light saber came with a severed hand as it fell from the sky onto a desert planet. It was soon discovered by Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, who according to IBTimes, reportedly met on the desert planet of Tatooine when Ridley saved Boyega from a crashed ship.
Upon seeing the light saber they instantly knew to whom they should return it to since it is a Jedi relic. This begins their journey off world to find its rightful owner and eventually meets Han Solo and Chewbacca, piloting the Millennium Falcon. Millennium Falcon's original crew recognized the light saber as belonging to Luke Skywalker, whom they haven't seen since the events of "Return of the Jedi." They said they haven't had contact with their friend in 30 years. Daisy Ridley and John Boyega's discovery of the light saber then sparks the quest in the search for Luke Skywalker, the Jedi Master.
Badassdigest also revealed the existence of an ice planet in "Star Wars: Episode VII" where evil forces inhabit. These forces are building a massive weapon that not only could kill off an entire planet but also the entire galaxy.
The site claimed the plot details in "Star Wars: Episode VII" is reminiscent of "A New Hope." Although this time it's the severed hand with the light saber that makes an appearance at Tatooine instead of R2-D2.
