Another week, another Star Wars rumour.
We still don’t have any firm casting news for Episode VII other than R2-D2′s appearance, but according to Yahoo! Movies the Millennium Falcon has been built for the upcoming Star Wars sequel.
“A full-scale 1:1 Millennium Falcon has been built as well as the interiors of the ship for filming,” a source told the website. “The Falcon is done – inside and out. The sets were built off-site, ready to move when Lucasfilm/Bad Robot were ready to move into Pinewood.”
Disney and LucasFilm have yet to confirm any news surrounding the film – other than its Dec. 18, 2015, release date – so nothing is official until you hear it from them. But if the Millennium Falcon does return, I think it’s safe to assume that Harrison Ford’s Han Solo will appear in the new film.
During an appearance on David Letterman, Samuel L. Jackson revealed that Mark Hamill, who was tipped to reprise his role as Luke Skywalker, and Ewan McGregor, who was rumoured to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi, had not been contacted about appearing in Episode VII.
But if Yahoo! Movies’ report turns out to be true, we can probably assume that the Millennium Falcon will play a big role in the upcoming trilogy.
What do you think? Is this a good sign for Episode VII? Sound off in the comments below.
