    My friend works in animation pre-vis and concept storyboarding. She was recently laid off and switched production houses. Disney contracts work through both and some of the material they were given included nods to Metropolis and early Ralph McQuarrie work on the Star Trek: Planet of the Titans and early Star Wars as well as more recent films like Oblivion.

    Both firms have had similar design docs passed to them with excerpts that included names like "King Kayos", "Queen Breha", "Hoedaack." Being a huge geek, she immediately recognized those from the rough drafts of The Star Wars (pre-Journal of the Whills).

    She's gathered the following plot points together:
    A young woman and her brother confront a corrupt king, whose rise to power and defeat of the previous king was his moral high point. He's convinced he's doing the right thing. The script says this take place from a bridge overlooking a space battle. The two youth's mother plays a factor in this (it's uncertain if she's dead due to use of the past tense).
    Luke falls to the darkside as he's thrust into power following the Emperor's defeat. It's a slow twist as he acquiesces. He's not used to prestige. Possibly Leia and Han's children trying to convince uncle Luke to step away from the edge.

    Animation pre-vis/illustration request for a flat, circular ship buckling and burning on re-entry, smashing into a large, oval-shaped structure.
    Coruscant anyone?

    Long, dog-like hair tests animations
    Wookies?

    That's about all she has from numerous script excerpts and scene descriptions.

    Your friend's unemployment in the film industry has just been immeasurably elongated by her friend...
