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 Expect set reports, spy footage and tabloid speculation to escalate and then superceded the levels of frenzy that once proceeded Episode I.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!
