Besides Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and other original Star Wars cast members, Episode VII will also see the return of the Millennium Falcon, the famous spacecraft commanded by Ford’s Han Solo and his buddy Chewbacca. Late last year, there were rumors that the Millennium Falcon was under-construction somewhere in London, and now, thanks to TMZ, of all sites, we have picture-proof.
TMZ got hold of several photos from a construction set in the UK. The pictures include what looks like the beginning stages of Han Solo’s famous spaceship the Millennium Falcon. Sources close to the Rebel Alliance informed the site that the pics were taken inside an “uber-secret location” in the UK — where different set pieces, props and creatures are being constructed. Below we have a couple of pictures of the spaceship and other things being constructed on the set. The photos were taken sometime in 2013, so we can assume that the Millennium Falcon is now complete.
