"Star Wars" Episode 8 is probably one of the most highly anticipated films to be released next year. With a solid fan base, it is almost guaranteed that the upcoming Star Wars installment would do well in the box office. However, a large fan base only means that a lot would be scouring the internet for "Star Wars" episode 8 spoilers and leaked movie info.

Fortunately, there are always some "Star War" episode 8 spoilers floating around. The latest one comes in the form of a supposed leaked "Star Wars" episode 8 script.

The new leak centers on "Star Wars" episode 8 character Rey, played by Daisy Ridley. According to Digital Spy, if the leaked script is indeed a true portion of the script from the upcoming Star Wars film, then it just revealed Rey's importance to the Jedi Order as well as put to rest previous speculations that she is Luke's daughter.

The supposedly leaked "Star Wars" episode 8 script shows a dialogue between Rey and Luke. In the script, Luke is explaining to Rey the secret story of how the Jedi Order came into being.

A family with two children, a boy and a girl, settled on what they thought to be an uninhabited planet. Being curious children, they began to explore their vicinity and soon discovered a unique tree that seemed to affect them.

The leaked "Star Wars" episode 8 script then described how the boy became more powerful but at the same time became angrier when the children are near the mysterious tree. One day, in an argument, the boy accidentally killed the girl. Stricken with grief, he touched the tree which transformed him into the Dark Side. Filled with rage and power, he killed his parents and left the planet.

But the story did not end in tragedy according to the "Star Wars" episode 8 leaked script. Apparently, the girl survived because she was connected to the tree at some level. She also decided to touch the tree and she was transformed as well.

But unlike her brother, she did not become a hate-filled person, according to the "Star Wars" script. Instead, she became the first Jedi, someone who has mastered the good side of the Force. The planet's villagers also noticed her transformation so she taught them the good use of the Force, in effect, establishing the Jedi order.

The "Star Wars" episode 8 script then went on to narrate how the girl left the planet one day. But before her departure, she promised that one day she will return in some form and instructed the Jedi Order that they should seek out and teach her future incarnation. For that reason, the Order have spent a millennia looking for the One.

The implication of this "Star Wars" season 8 spoiler is that Rey could actually be the reincarnation of the first Jedi, the One who have been sought by the Order for so long.

The leaked "Star Wars" season 8 script also mentioned that Luke shared a vision of the past to Rey. It was then learned that the people in the vision are Rey's parents who were saddened when they learned that she has the force and would soon be taken away from them for training.

If the script is actually from the original "Star Wars" season 8 script, it would mean that Rey is not actually Luke's daughter previously speculated. For reference, the leaked script can be accessed in the StormTrooperLarry blog.

Stay tuned for more "Star Wars" season 8 spoilers and news.
