NO SH*T RUMOR: The MILLENIUM FALCON will “play a role” in ‘EPISODE VII.’
Does this surprise you? Does it knock the hair off your labia? Does it hardened your nipples and/or testicles? ‘Cause it seems pretty obvious to me. If James James Abrams is getting the entire original cast back together for Episode VII, why in tarnation wouldn’t the Millenium Falcon be involved? So why am I covering this? ‘Cause I fucking love Star Wars!
Briefly: She’s the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy and, according to the latest rumor, she’s might soon be one of the oldest too. Latino Review is reporting interiors of aMillennium Falcon set have already been completed at Pinewood Studios in London for the upcoming filming of Star Wars Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams. Abrams will film most of the movie there, with some of production happening in Los Angeles as well.
Why this set would already be built in September 2013 when filming isn’t likely to start until 2014 makes this rumor seem fishy, but it’s still an intriguing piece to throw into the Episode VII speculation ring.
The Falcon was originally Lando Calrissian’s ship before losing it in a card game to Han Solo. It made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. [Latino Review]
