grey Full Scale Millennium Falcon Has Been Built For Star Wars Episode VII

Yahoo! has reported that the YT-1300 light freighter: The Millenium Falcon, is prepped and ready for takeoff!

“A full-scale 1:1 Millennium Falcon has been built as well as the interiors of the ship for filming,” they explained. “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.”

We are on the cusp of another Star Wars film being shot and while there may be a lack of official news, the hype surrounding the film will shortly make the jump to Lightspeed. Expect set reports, spy footage and tabloid speculation to escalate and then superceded the levels of frenzy that once proceeded Episode I.

What possible harm can come from being excited about a Star Wars film? We want to be excited, to debate blurry spy pictures, to analyse trailers and to create elaborate storylines in our mind. We’re bored with journalists, fans and bloggers harking on about the Prequels or mass producing pointless articles that express one poisonous opinion after another!

For the sake of your inner child: jump into your imagination, invent storylines that involve The Millennium Falcon and ignore those swimming in negativity!

In short… Only 735 days until our next Star Wars adventure!

    I am tired of hearing about the disappointment with the prequels!!! Star Wars VII needs enthusiastic support, not folks setting themselves up for another disappointment.

      yeah… we did that last time and got our asses burned. i think there’s prob a small flicker of optimism in a lot of us (coz, hey, JJ!) but we’re also totally ready for disappoint.

      People giving enthusiastic support *are* setting themselves up for another disappointment.

    Have faith! Han Solo will be back, Chewbacca will be back and the kick-ass Millennium Falcon will be back! full sized set also suggests that JJ will keep his word and we will see far fewer CGI locations and effects! All that’s missing are a few well painted models and we’ll be rockin!

    People who troll about the Prequels are not Star Wars fans. They are an embarrassment to the franchise and should avoid all future Star Wars related films/games/tv etc.

    Chewbaca should NOT be back. They dropped a moon on him and the EU should be canon.

    Fanboys should keep their sad and pathetic “it has to be the way I want it to be” jackasses. Are you in the director chair? Are you getting paid by Disney to produce this film? No, so get over it. I have full faith in JJ Abrams to deliver on a well written story and a great visual experience. That should be enough for anyone…but no, we have the geeks that want to get out their “Star Wars Wishlist”, 95% of which is ludicrous and outlandish. EU is just that…EU. If it’s not EU, get over it. I am 35 years old and have seen any Star Wars opening weekend as long as I have been alive and I refuse to set myself for any kind of disappointment.

    Take the double bladed lightsaber out of your ass cracks and get over it.

    No way should the EU be canon – if they let that in then yeah we get -some- cool characters like Thrawn, but we also get twice-cloned emperors, endless superweapons, yet -another- Death Star, and then to top it all off we get glorified reavers flying giant poop ships that shoot lava.

    That, my friends, is the very definition of baggage. It was never canon, nor shall it ever be because Disney is not stupid.

    All respect to Zahn’s work, but I’d rather see where Abrams will take it, thank you very much.

      I agree. I’ve always kinda treated the EU as fan fiction opposed to something that is canon and a part of the Universe.
