And StarWars.com delivered on the story behind Force Collector:
Karr suffers from searing headaches and mysterious visions, a secret ignited when he touches certain objects. His parents worry that he might be sick; his grandmother is convinced these are visions channeled by the Force.
But as the memory of the Jedi fades and the First Order tightens its grip on the galaxy, the teenager once stuck on an isolated home planet sets off on a journey for answers.
