Mark Hamill confirms for the original opening for TFA.

My question is ... is it Kylo's severed hand? Or is this whole line of story completely gone?

I think it depends on who gets the "Skywalker special" in VIII (assuming that the leak is correct)...and whether the loss of hand takes place in a flashback or in real time.

Oh that's true. I didn't even think about Skywalker special being a flashback. I mean Kylo always does have the gloves on.

I'm glad that they didn't go with this intro. It always sounded cheesy. I always just assumed it was Luke's hand from Bespin, but now that the lightsaber might be Kylo's, I have more interest if any piece of this has survived.

I mean you have to think *something* has survived with the way the sword sends the telepathic information to Rey and how it goes to her.

The falling on Jakku part is weird. I mean did LST cut off Kylo's hand so that's why Kylo had a beef with him? I don't know ... too many unknowns here.

Sounds as if it could have been Luke's hand from when he lost the saber on Bespin? Very odd though, perhaps similar to the force visions it's not meant to be literal. I wonder if original intent was for Rey to find the saber on Jakku and that be her call to leave.

It's also a rather gruesome start to a kid friendly film!

I believe the original opening was supposed to follow the lightsaber's journey from Bespin to (eventually) Maz.

Glad it was changed though Very Happy That sounds a bit dull and exposition-ish.

Sorry, slight correction. I once read somewhere the opening was following the lightsaber's journey from Bespin to Maz, but I don't know how accurate that info was. Could be that was later changed to Maz telling about the lightsaber's journey, until that whole thing was scrapped altogether. I don't know.

But the last thing I read was that the opening was going to be the lightsaber falling from Bespin and then being discovered by someone.

Looks as if they were thinking of making the lightsabre be the medium for carrying the plot. Explains the Forceback vision and the final scene, which would be more meaningful if the opening scene was the sabre drifting in space, trying to find a way to Luke.

But an opening like that would not be in the tradition of having a spaceship move across a planet, as has happened in the other 6 films, I think? They presumably felt they needed as many resonances as possible with the old films.
