Look, gang, it’s a slow news day, plus it’s Valentine’s Day, so please, give us a break on this little bit of ridiculousness. News broke today that the Millennium Falcon, the ship in the original trilogy that belonged to smuggler Han Solo and made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, might be making an appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII. Gasp! Boom! Bang! We better write about that!
How did this life-changing information leak? On the LucasFilm website, a new image was published, featuring the Star Wars: Episode VII production team spitballing the look of the new film. And if you look closely in the background, you can see a production drawing of the Millennium Falcon.
So, what does that mean? Well, absolutely next to nothing, really. So maybe the Millennium Falcon will appear in the film… which wouldn’t be surprising in the slightest. Or, it’s simply some Star Wars art placed on the wall of the production offices of a Star Wars movie, and the Millennium Falcon won’t appear at all. All that really matters is, hey, we made a news post out of it. Happy Valentine’s Day, kids.
What do you think of the Star Wars quasi-news?
