It was a dark and stormy night a long time ago in a galaxy far far away

    Just for fun, this is how I thought possibly (and I still haven't seen it so . . )
    - The Force Awakens story might be :

    the story is - parallel to us in this galaxy :

    1) Fans in our universe have been waiting for a long, long time for a new Star Wars saga:
    Kylo Ren and everyone in the story are looking for either Luke and other "missing pieces to the puzzle" - as are we - as fans of Star Wars stuff and the movie characters are also "fans" of Darth Vader or Luke (depending on what side they are on). We dress up in outfits, have stories and toys; Kylo has DV's mask and is a collector of artifacts - Rey is looking to get off a planet and have an adventure and in a way we all are - the Resistance is looking for closure and a new future and so are we in a sense

    2) Thus The Force awakens, after a long sleep - awakens for the story characters in their universe . . however (via us watching and having our hopes, aspirations etc) it also awakens for us - by living parts of our reality in that universe trying to make life reflect art as much as we affect it - who hasn't tried to use (if not at least wonder about) the force - and as technology and philosophy make our world closer to a story we know about which is far far away, hopefully ours will be for the good and not the bad, thus it is an epic story (myth, adventure, romance, soap opera . . .) about the struggles of life itself and good and bad etc . . . we want inspiration for whatever our personal opinions and strive to make it so - as individuals / life / civilization progresses it's always an awakening of some sorts I would say possibly

    Which naturally leads to a story arc, perhaps :

    3) We have heard John Boyega say his character is like none we have seen in Star Wars - so WHAT IF:
    He is actually a fan and was playing with toy stormtroopers and through a portal was swept into a galaxy a long time ago far far away and was raised to become a StormTrooper - he was trained to forget the past basically probably brain washed - however Maz Katana can tell there is something special about him that is key to helping their universe (and ours) - - though this would be the underlying theme it would only be mentioned or hinted at once or twice and not brought up again except maybe a very few times in the next movies because the story is Star Wars -

    other thoughts:

    a)) Other scripts of course have had similar stories like FarScape and Quantum Leap and most stories (at least so far) have been limited to about 10 or so main story arcs - and if this is not the story I won't be disappointed per se - I know that careful we must be when guessing the future.

    b)) I do hope or would find interesting if George Lucas does a side movie, or one in the next three (10-12) (should IMO wait at least 10 years after ep 9).

    c)) Somewhere (I cannot find currently, the website actually had a rough draft) I read (a rumor) that one rough draft of episodes 10-12 might be way in the future of the SW universe - about the galaxy being such a close network that some people wanted to to find a way out and leave the galaxy and start anew -

    May the force be with you . . .

    Note : this was in reply to Starwarsgrandpa who was the first reply.

    If you look at the time stamp of when I posted to when you replied- there is only one - 2 minutes - which means you couldn't have read it really

    - and to make a point of calling something else "pointless" is really self reflection

    - as soon as I posted this almost immediately I saw your reply - it seems you are an old grandpa who is senile and is yelling for others to git off of your lawn when they are only on the sidewalk

    I like the spirit of your post, and the idea of the relationship between the two "realities" which I agree is fundamentally true; but whereas you're dividing the two, they're really one in the movie. What I mean is the movie "reality"(2) is a metaphor of our "reality"(1) and so there are two things, but fundamentally they are one. Rey, Kylo and Finn are all metaphors of the new generation of Star Wars fans that have come from the old generation of fans, Luke, Han and Leia are all metaphors of old generation fans. The movie itself is the story of this new generation fans discovering Star Wars through the old generation; Rey and Finn are kids discovering who Luke Skywalker is by hearing the stories of their parents and watching the movies; first they hear about it from others, then they discover it for themselves.

    The lightsaber being passed from old to new is a metaphor of the passing of the spirit of Star Wars from old generation to new through the metaphor of the movies. All of these things are metaphors, and the things they represent are real. So Han can say "It's true; all of it" and he's right. He can say it's "real" because it is.

    Yes that is right - like when in the trailer the narration by Luke : My father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power, too
    They want to infer the you is (not just Rey or whoever but) . . . YOU! Yes you!!!

    [maybe not Starwarsgrandpa - he is trying to use the dark side it seems]
