Rey: Han Solo?? And that means you must be Chewbacca!
Han Solo: No, this is his son, Lumpy!
Ironically enough, that might be all we need. Don’t even explain it within the episode but if anyone asks resort to that.
Each episode should last 22 minutes, because of limited footage. Before each episode should be an opening voiceover similar to Star Wars: The Clone Wars, to provide alternate background information.
Episode 1 - The Map: In the aftermath of the Abeloth Crisis, Luke Skywalker has disappeared in search of the First Jedi Temple. Despite peace with the Imperial Remnant, a small terror cell led by an old apprentice of Palpatine called the First Order believes the secrets of the temple are key to opening an ancient superweapon. Kylo Ren arrives at Jakku and captures Galactic Alliance Intelligence Agent Poe Dameron, but his droid escapes. Meanwhile, Stormtrooper Finn has a crisis of conscience and breaks Poe out, leading to a space battle. They crash, and the episode ends.
Episode 2 - The Scavenger: BB-8 is found by Rey. The episode is told mostly from Rey’s perspective with some Finn, culminating in their escape from Jakku. The episode ends with their ship caught by Han Solo, who proclaims “we’re home”.
Episode 3 - The Smuggler: Opening voiceover explains Han has gone back to his old ways, now with Chewbacca’s son. The rathtar battle occurs and they are able to escape. They then travel to Maz’s Castle, where Finn leaves the group and Anakin’s lightsaber calls to Rey. Meanwhile, Kylo Ren goes undercover onboard Starkiller Base.
Episode 4 - The Lightsaber: Kylo speaks with Snoke, who reveals in order to complete his training he must kill his father - Luke Skywalker. Kylo Ren = Ben Skywalker, grandson of Darth Vader. On Takodona Rey learns she is destined to be a Jedi when the First Order attacks and Kylo captures Rey. Poe makes a triumphant return and Han and Leia reunite.
Episode 5 - The Superweapon: We learn from the opening voiceover than in order to activate the ancient Sith superweapon, the First Order must find and kill the only one who knows the First Jedi Temple’s secrets, Luke. Han and Finn stage a daring break-in and save Rey. Han the cool uncle tries to save his nephew but is killed. Finn takes a big injury, but they manage to escape thanks to Rey accepting her fate. Ends with her traveling to Ach-To.
At this point Rey would be training with Luke. This would intentionally not be shown. We do see the Rey / Kylo force talks but from Kylo’s perspective.
Episode 6 - The Dreadnought: With Leia’s group having discovered the existence of Starkiller, the First Order moves to the offensive to prevent Leia from contacting the rest of the galaxy. Poe has a deadly plan, but it proves for nothing when the First Order tracks them through hyperspace. Leia is injured in the ensuing attack.
Episode 7 - The Plan: Holdo comes into control of the Resistance and Finn makes up. Poe and Finn create a deadly plan that involves disabling the Supremacy’s hyperspace tracker from the inside, but it all proves for naught when Finn and Rose are captured and Poe’s mutiny is ended by Leia.
Episode 8 - The Supreme Leader: Rey arrives on the Supremacy. Ben kills Snoke, but cannot turn Rey to the dark side. Holdo does the lightspeed ram and everyone retreats to Crait, for the finale.
Episode 9 - The Jedi Master: The Battle of Crait. Everyone has given up hope when suddenly Luke returns. He defends everyone as they escape and then reveals himself to be a force projection. On Ach-To Luke pushes himself like never before and is able to destroy Starkiller Base with his mind, before he becomes one with the force.
