Remarkable images have been posted online showing what appears to be parts of the Millennium Falcon in its current state on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. The ship looks in great shape for a 37 year old craft (;). However, this does reinforce (no pun intended) the overwhelming notion that J.J. Abrams is using primarily practical effects for much of his chapter of the saga, including an intricate Millennium Falcon spaceship.
I wonder whether these pictures have come out as some kind of evidentiary tool for Harrison Ford‘s workers compensation case against Disney/Lucasfilm. Joking!
Can we just revel in the amazing detail? I love the bucket pilot seats that make the Falcon look like your dad’s old Duster from 1974.
