Ridley and Boyega will finally meet the legendary Han Solo and Chewbacca who will recognise the lightsaber as that of Skywalker’s.Â After finding Skywalker, they come to know about the wickedness of the Inquisitors who secretly partnered with Sith in order to destroy the Jedi Masters or Jedi-in-training.
