INTERCUT:

It’s LANDO CALRISSIAN, hunched over a console, a bloody rip in his shoulder. He’s out of breath.

  LANDO: This message is intended for transmission across the Rebel Network.

The group looks to the image with concern, especially Han.

  LANDO (CONT.): Cloud City is under attack. The Empire strikes back. Again. After all these years. They came outta nowhere.

Kuwani looks on with concern. MeCoulm eyes her suspiciously.

  LANDO (CONT.): I can’t believe it. You guys know me. I’m Lando Calrissian, diplomat, mediator, protector of the New Rebel Republic. (smirks) Ladies man… I’m not one for the scrolls. But. Well. They have Jedis. They look for a legendary saviour born of the clouds. They call him the Sky Walker.

MarkHamillGuardiansPremiere_article_story_large

Luke looks to Kuwani, with wonder.

  LANDO (CONT.): Hurry. If they destroy this outpost, the Republic will be crippled. If it happens. If the city falls. Just know. I’m sorry I couldn’t protect the center of the Republic.

Lando looks away, struggling with emotions. An explosion rocks the room. He looks back to the console.

  LANDO (CONT.): Tell the Queen… I meant to.

The image disappears. The group is stunned. Chewie yells.

  KUWANI: The Crevasse reaches. Now they attack.

  MECOULM (realizing): They destroyed Cloud City to find you.

  LUKE: I’m sorry.

  HAN: That’s just the beginning, MeCoulm. You? Jedi. What’s their plan?

KUWANI (as *played here* by ALEXANDRA DADDARIO)

  KUWANI: The child, Solo. YOUR child. His birth has lit a fuse of events, that will explode one after another.

  MECOULM: They’re using Han’s kid to lure Luke?

  HAN (distracted): Something like that.

  MECOULM: Then what?

  KUWANI: We cut the fuse. That is why I am here.

EXT. CLOUD CITY – SUNSET

Sunlight basks the wispy clouds surrounding the OPULENT floating Cloud City. The warm sunset SPARKLES across the shining towers.

A ship departs from one of the many floating hangars. It streams across the clouds and higher into space.

The clouds re-settle. A moment.

THEN, stealthily from within, three sleek ships appear, SHIMMERING with adjusting colours, and maintaining a chameleon-like invisibility.

Dark storm clouds roll in with the ships, overwhelming the brilliant pastels and filling them with rain and lightning.

EXT. HANGAR PORT – SAME

A crew navigates ships to and from port. One member points up and YELLS, as a sleek ship FIRES into the hangar.

Panicked crews run. A departing ship EXPLODES.

The jet deactivates its cloak – its sleek body goes black – as it BLASTS apart the crew and lands on the empty hangar.

INT. CLOUD CITY TOWER – SAME

A cloaked man rushes down a long hallway, flanked by armed guards. It’s LANDO. He talks to his earpiece as he struts.

  LANDO: Who? What do you mean you don’t know? Do you know how many diplomats from across the galaxy are here? (listens, smirks) A lot. So. Protect them.

LANDO… played by original actor BILLY DEE WILLIAMS

Lando enters ANOTHER hallway. The doors SLIDE closed behind.

A bald cloaked assassin approaches. He THROWS one of the guards with the Force. He BLASTS the other.

The thrown guard quickly returns fire. It SPARKS the armour.

Lando BLASTS the bald head. Flesh PEELS off. SPARKS. But he keeps advancing. The blasted guard FIRES from the ground.

the Assassin as *played here* by AARON PAUL

The assassin REACHES out and sends the guard flying into the door. It SLIDES open just after he clumps to the ground.

Lando arrives at the other guard, who’s passed out. Lando grabs a grenade from the guard’s belt.

FZZAK. A blast GRAZES Lando’s arm. He WHIPS the grenade. KA-BLAM. The enemy explodes. SPARKS.

  LANDO: At least THAT worked.

Lando rises. Holds his shoulder. He looks out the window.

INTERCUT: EXT.

The enemy’s BLACK ships fight ships visiting Cloud City.

  LANDO (OS): Send all available units to the hangars. We got trouble.

Lando leans against the glass, holding himself up, while he watches the ships fire lasers in the dark storm.

  LANDO (TO COMM): Scan their ships. Find out where they came from. And who’s with ‘em.

WIPE:

EXT. CAVE – AFTERNOON

A long thin speeder cruises the desert. It slows at the cave. The droids aren’t standing watch anymore.

KUWANI SAEWA (as *played here* by ALEXANDRA DADDARIO)

The braided assassin, KUWANI SAEWA, parks her long speeder next to MeCoulm’s at the bottom of the cliff.

INT. CAVE

MeCoulm taps the R2 unit on its domed head. R2D2 whistles.

  MECOULM: Um, the R2’s ready. Are you? Guys?

(click, listen, scroll – PICTUREplay)

Luke and Han lean in, curious. They look to another.

PSSHT. A holographic image spotlights from R2 onto the cave floor. It’s Leia. Chewie groans a sad howl.

LEIA (Carrie Fisher)

  LEIA: Luke. If you’re watching this, the worst must have happened.

The image of Leia paces. She holds her smaller pregnant belly. MeCoulm wells up. He looks to the solemn faces of Luke and Han.

  MECOULM: Uh, should we be here for this?

  LUKE: Stay. No more secrets.

  LEIA: –new planets searching for some remnant of the Empire. Our Intel points to the solar system, KASDAN-77, named for its recent discoverer.

ford

Han grabs a glass straw. Cracks. Inhales.

  LEIA (CONT.): The Empire survives. Palpatine has woven quite an elaborate plan far beyond the Death Star. Beyond Vader.

Luke flexes his robot hand, now re-attached.

  LEIA (CONT.): His contingency plans sprawl far into the future. The Empire has prepared for nearly 30 years. If you’re hearing this message, they must have returned.

MeCoulm looks to Han. This is bad news. Han doesn’t seem so concerned with that. He’s intently watching Leia. Just her.
