    Hey, all!

    I thought it would be fun and interesting to see what people could come up with for an opening crawl for Episode VIII. The hard part is writing a crawl for a movie that supposedly starts off right where the last one left off!

    Well, here's my entry. I'm sure others can come up with better ones.


    The galaxy is in crisis! With the capital of the New Republic destroyed, chaos and fear have gripped the remaining systems. The fragile republic has begun to splinter. General Leia Organa struggles to maintain the fledging Resistance to stop the advancement of the sinister First Order.


    Having discovered Luke Skywalker’s location, Supreme Leader Snoke is more determined than ever to rid the galaxy of the last remaining Jedi. He has dispatched his Knights of Ren, led by the deadly Kylo Ren, to destroy Skywalker before he can train his new apprentice.


    Meanwhile, in a far Outer Rim territory, a new evil threatens to destroy the galaxy…

    Nice crawl but there is already a thread about this topic. You should have a look at it.

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

    STAR WARS EPISODE VIII
    THE WRATH OF THE DARK SIDE​

    Terror has swept the galaxy. After Rey went to find the elusive Luke Skywalker on the mysterious planet of Ahch-To, the evil FIRST ORDER regrouped in the UNKNOWN REGIONS of space to plan their counter attack against the RESISTANCE.

    Meanwhile, reeling from the destruction of their capital planet and entire fleet, the NEW REPUBLIC seeks to put a stop to the impending war at all costs and has sent a prominent senator to meet General Leia Solo at a secret location.

    Kylo Ren, conflicted after his defeat in battle to Rey, has been ordered by SUPREME LEADER SNOKE to lead a mission that will complete his training and prevent the return of Luke Skywalker forever...​
