Leaked Star Wars: The Force Awakens screenplay confirms new detail about Luke Skywalker

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been in theaters for a couple of weeks now, and conversation about certain things that happen in the movie have popped up in conversation on various forums.

Still, the grace period for spoiler warnings is still on, so consider this your official spoiler warning for anything that follows.

In The Force Awakens, audiences don't get a glimpse of Luke Skywalker until the last few moments of the film, when Rey discovers the planet he's been hiding on and tracks him down. Now, after the film's alleged script was leaked online, a Lucasfilm employee has confirmed the name of the planet Luke stationed himself on.

Pablo Hidalgo, the creative executive of Lucas Story Group, confirmed on Twitter that the name of the planet mentioned at the end of the script, Ahch-To, is accurate. There isn't much information about Ahch-To online, but according to Heroic Hollywood, the planet was the location of the first Jedi temple and comes from the junior novelization.

What this means for the future of Luke's character is uncertain, and there wasn't any revelations within the script itself, but at least there's a name for where Luke and Rey left off.

The Force Awakens is playing in theaters now and has far surpassed Jurassic World and Titanic as one the biggest grossing movies at the domestic box office.

Update: The headline of this story has been updated.
