The Plot Of STAR WARS EPISODE VIII Has Seemingly Leaked Online And It Will Make You Really, REALLY Mad

We've heard that Rian Johnson has some interesting things planned for Star Wars Episode VIII, but if this rumoured plot outline is accurate, you may want to start getting your torches and pitchforks ready...

Months before the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a plot outline found its way online which ended up being pretty much 99% accurate when compared to the finished product. In fact, the movie was plagued with leaks from the very start as concept art and set photos were leaked online, and while the sequel has so far managed to avoid that type of thing, has the story been revealed already? 

This comes from Reddit, so it's best to take it with a massive pinch of salt, but it certainly makes for interesting reading! The full version (which doesn't feature an ending) can be found by clicking below, but for now, you may want to have a read of a plot twist which will almost certainly leave fans fuming if true. To call it batsh*t crazy and controversial would actually be a pretty massive understatement...

WARNING: POTENTIALLY MAJOR SPOILERS FOLLOW
 
The backstory to Luke and his Jedi being wiped out is that Snoke seduced Kylo and a few of the other students to the dark side and tasked them with killing everyone. Luke and a few others survived, including a young Rey who was subsequently dumped on Jakku by Luke.
 
Rey's mom died in the attack.
 
Rey is pissed at Luke because she guesses that he was her father and is angry at him for abandoning her. Luke turns to her and says "No, you are my father".
 
Yes, really.
 
Rey is the reincarnation of Anakin Skywalker. Luke went to the first Jedi temple to better understand how the process works. He learned that the spirit of the chosen one is reincarnated by the Force every time the universe is thrown out of balance, which apparently happens on a semi-regular basis (Anakin was hardly the first time the chosen one reincarnated). This is why she's so crazy powerful with the Force (remember that Anakin blew up the Trade Federation donut ship by himself when he was like 8 years old).
 
Rey was the product of a virgin birth, but midichlorians aren't mentioned (Luke says "you are a child of the Force").
 
Luke is hesitant to train her because, according to Jedi history, the chosen one always struggles with staying on the light side of the Force because of the chaotic power running through them. He's afraid that she could become Vader 2.0. If he trains her to fight Kylo, and she turns dark, she would do way more damage to the galaxy than Kylo could ever dream of doing.
 
He ultimately trains her anyway and leaves everything up to the Force. He makes this decision in a scene where he confers with the ghosts of Obi-Wan and Yoda (Ewan MacGregor and Frank Oz come back).
 
Rey learns lightsaber skills, Force skills, and has a vision quest thing where she talks with Maz Kanata (unsure if it’s telepathy or just a dream) and Hayden Christenson. The latter tells her that she is him, but different, and there’s a quick scene where we see hundreds of other Force ghosts who are implied to be past chosen ones.

"No, you are my father"? Oh man, this really is like, "Tell that to Zod's broken neck!" all over again! 

I don't for a second think this is legit, but that Star Wars: The Force Awakens plot breakdown also appeared somewhere like reddit or 4Chan, so it would be foolish to completely write this one off. This is certainly a unique twist if true anyway, but one it's easy to imagine infuriating a lot of fans. What do you guys think? Would you like this to be how Rey's story plays out in the movie or is this just stupid?
