The action of the sequel takes place 35 years after the events of Episode VI franchise. A new intergalactic adventure and a new quarrel between the Empire and Resistance forces, led by Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), will take place. Kylo Ren, the villain played by Adam Driver makes promise to finish what he started Darth Vader.
On the other side of the barricade are Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega), who find a purpose after meeting with Han Solo (Harrison Ford). “Awakening forces” in the film’s title is a direct comment on the evolution of the two protagonists.
BB bot-8, Chewbacca and Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher interpreted the same, have their own role in developments.
