The Millennium Falcon Rumors + Chewbacca Gets the Thumbs Up After his Knee Surgery.

A few days ago a rumor about a possible Episode 7 title was spread. It turned out that it was an old rumor dismissed a long time ago. The same report featured another interesting info regarding the involvement of a certain space ship in Episode 7. Now 2 other separate sources are confirming this including Star Wars: Episode 7 production designers Doug Chiang and Ian McCaig

First the rumor about the possible involvement of the Millennium Falcon in Episode 7 was started by talkbacker. According to their sources:

“… the falcon will make a big appearance (in Ep.7), 1.1 scale size cross section is being constructed over at Pinewood, along with a power plant set and the famous cantina.”

Later LatinoReview added more to the subject:

“All of  post-production and re-shoots are to work around Abrams and Actors schedules. 90% of shooting in London. Also they are building the Millennium Falcon on at Pinewood. Interior is done.”

Yet the biggest confirmation comes from Star Wars: Episode 7 production designers Doug Chiang and Ian McCaig. They revealed that back at the celebration Europe event (via moviecricket):

During the Q&A part of the meet and greet the pair answered questions regarding the work they were currently doing at Skywalker ranch and hinted with a sly wink that it would be cool to see a female Jedi in the movie and also confirmed that they will be bringing back the things the fans loved including a certain spaceship that was absent from the prequels…”


Speaking about the Millennium Falcon we really should mention that its co-pilot Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) got the thumbs up after his double knee replacement surgery. Right now he is recovering at a Texas hospital.

Get well big guy and hope to see you in Episode 7!

Thumbs up from the big guy!
