New Star Wars: Episode 7 Pictures of the Millennium Falcon’s Interior from Pinewood?

Millennium FalconThe photos are only 4 and I personally haven’t seen them before. They do look like they were taken from Pinewood. If you want to take a peek then hit the jump and don’t worry there are no spoilers ahead…

 

So here they are:

The first picture definitely looks like a corridor of a Star Destroyer or another Imperial structure. It also perfectly matches with the pictures that TMZ leaked a few months ago again from Pinewood. Especially this one:

There’s nothing special about the Falcon pics but they do look legit. We know that during the filming of the Original Trilogy they used blue screens, so these are definitely not old photos. Still I was told that some of the 4 photos are old and some are indeed from Pinewood. Help us figure out which are the old ones in the comments.

    Well, there is lens flare on the first and fourth pics. Those two have to be new.

    2 and 3 photos definitely old

    • Nick Parker

      No they are not old because they used Blue Screens on the old films. There noticeable green screens 2 may be old though

    • wayne

      3 and 4 were took at the same set. Look at the seat belt on the right rear seat. In the same waded position.

  • r0tcod

    What’s up with the green screen outside the cockpit? I thought they were going to film more on location.

      That’s just a screen covering up the real background! They have a painted space background and the planets are models on wires, cause CGI is like totally evil!

    • John

      You do realize that “on location” means that they only shoot things that could be reasonably filmed in a real world location… even the prequels used actual location shooting from Tunisia and Italy. But space is, ya know, kinda hard to get to even with NASA technology, so be prepared to see (gasp!) some green screen in a film released in 2015.

      • I think r0tcod was just being sarcastic. :)

          A green screen? Run away OT fans, it’s positively evil! It’s out to get you!

          • Anonymous

            Which OT fans complain about greenscreen? None. Stop implying fake facts. It’s a tool to composite shots. Bluescreen was used in the OT to composite shots together. People liked this, not disliked this. The problem is when people depend on it to create shots rather than simply enhance and put shots together. Your mockery tone implies you find this argument valid enough to try and (fail to) counter it. Nice try. Move along.

              Actually, smartass Anon 19:07, I’ve heard lots of OT fanatics hate on greenscreen. So I think you’re the one who is out of touch with reality. Just re-read these message boards and you will see.

                “quit changing your tune, green screen hater.”
                I literally just made an entire post saying nobody hates greenscreen. My entire point was that people complain about it’s use. You just fail to listen to the reasoning and come to the conclusion that they hate it altogether. The fact you can’t even be bothered to listen to the bigger picture, and just resorting to telling me to shut up, and yet again claim I am a ‘greenscreen hater’ is just proving my point exactly.

                August 12, 2014 at 21:02 PM

                You clearly do not understand either. I have literally explained to you why you are wrong. Why do you fail to listen? People complain ABOUT the greenscreen in the prequels. People do not complain about it’s involvement. It’s the context, not the involvement. Like I say, people praised the effects of the OT because they used bluescreen to composite different shots together of practical effects. People praised this hugely. The problems with the prequels were not the fact that there WAS greenscreen, the problem was how it was USED. Instead of it being used to enhance locations, it was being used to create entire locations. Instead of it being used to put actors into different settings, it was used to create CG characters and put into created CG locations. Not all of the time of course, but a lot of times. People did not like this. When people complain about the use or the volume, they are complaining about the context of the greenscreen use, not the idea of it altogether. The fact you are trying to counter an argument when you don’t understand it in the first place is nothing short of inane, let alone the childish way in which you make your failed attempts. Now go on, I eagerly await your inane reply where you will just tell me to shut up and claim I hate greenscreen. Real logical counter arguments there..

        Boy are you dumb. You think he is actually complaining that they’re not shooting in space?!? AND he got 15 other dummies to agree with him …. You see, THIS is the kind of idiocy I’m talking about, right here.
        THIS is why every fucking movie now is a comic book movie, “Star Trek” was destroyed, etc., etc. It’s because all that shit is written to appeal to imbeciles that comprise the vast majority of the movie-going public now.

      How do you think they film the space battles? Literally in space?

    • Anonymous

      Don’t worry. Green screen is for space and ships and absurdity velocity.
      Space and ships are not cgi problems. Humans, aliens and cgi suits are the problem

      • Cosmicdolphin

        ..and thousands of clone troopers..those shots look like a game cut-scene as do quite a few sequences in the PT..I’m looking at you Gungans vs Droid Army

        • Anna

          Just watch – in another 10 years – there will be Special Edition of the Prequel Trilogy with all of the CGI replaced with puppets and maquettes ;-)

        • ha ha ha

          of course, that gungan vs. droid battle was not nearly as brilliant and realistic as that jerky-stop-motion taun taun or those dots of lights going into the sky of the X wings taking off Yavin.

          Give the CGI complaining a rest! Ok so the clones in AOTC look fake. It was done 13 years ago!! Of course it looks fake.

    It’s amazing to me that Disney’s budget isn’t bigger for this film. I mean – if they are actually filming everything on location – in a galaxy far, far away – it must cost a shit-ton to get out there.

    And what about the money for Dr. Brown to build a much larger flux capacitor? To get a long time ago and get all that crew and equipment and everything to the Star Wars temporal universe would take a MASSIVE machine. And don’t even get me started on where the plutonium is coming from!!!

    • Please no one get him started..

      Maybe they could film asteroid scenes in the rings around Saturn. Would that even be cost effective?

    I always wondered what the other side of the cockpit wall looked like. This just made my day.

  • Why are most of the “leaked” photos such bad quality? Don’t most cell phone cameras have HD capability?

    • It’s a bootleg picture. Most bootlegs are low quality.

      • Anonymous

        I think I read somewhere that you must turn in your phone on the way to the set. So, if someone’s going to sneak a picture, it will have to be with a device other than a phone.

          Maybe a Smartwatch ?

    When comparing it to the ESB photo of the cockpit, there seem to be a few subtle differences. It looks like the back seats from ESB have two arm rests, where these “new” photos only have one. There also appear to be some very subtle differences on the box in the center. Although I will say, if these photos are indeed new, they went to great lengths to recreate the original. I am choosing to believe they are new, mostly based on the green screen, but who knows. That would be easy enough to fake.

      Im sure the Falcon has gotten fucked up over the years since ROTJ. I mean, it was just recently the door almost tore off Han’s leg! So, its not like it would be in the same exact condition in E7.

        Im sure it wouldn’t, I’m just trying to see, by comparison if the pictures are identical or new.

    Some of the pictures have a lot of fricken bright lights, most likely for those stupid overuses of lens flares.

    • Stillwatch

      No that’s not how it works. Lens flair is added in post production with CGI. That’s lighting so the film isn’t dark. Don’t get your panties in a bunch.

      • Anonymous

        To be fair to the other guy, JJ doesn’t add lens flare in post, he does it on set with additional lighting.

        • Brewer13 (Formerly “Unknown”)

          I was just addressing that. ha.

      • Brewer13 (Formerly “Unknown”)

        Lens flairs aren’t always created in post production. They can be created simply by pointing a flashlight/torch directly at the camera lens while filming.
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vg8U3eNEzKg

  • Retrotek

    I do hope that is not how we can expect the lighting to look finished and we go back to the natural documentary look as before instead of this artificial gelled monotone foggy look that is so prevalent now in movies and games and evident in the third picture more then the others. It’s the design fad the has been around since the 90’s and just won’t go away.

    • Anonymous

      Isn’t it safe to assume these are cell phone pics? I doubt they are indicative of what the finished film will look like.

    • More grainy film please!

      I hope they filter the water for the sake of any action scenes with Ford. They better use lots of white light to flood Carrie fishers scenes. And with Lukes scenes they better use fans so his hair has movement more like original Sw and not ROTJ. It so damn sad these film makers today can’t get it right!

    Oh my dear lord, quite possible some of the dumbest comments I have ever seen on a fan site – you’re giving Doctor Who fans a good name.

  • Jengabean

    Guys these are clearly all real, all taken on a modern cell phone. None of these are old, if so they wouldn’t look anything like a cell phone pic. They’d be old film photos and they would look completely different. The comments about green screens are also valid. Optical compositing used the highly sensitive blue layer in the film elements to pull a matte. Digital compositing uses the green channel in a digital image because that has the most information due to how digital sensors are built to mimic the greater green response of the eye. Now we all know this film was show on real film but we also know that all film elements are scanned and processed digitally now. So back to green screen since ultimately the images are still being scanned by a digital sensor. No old photos, clearly all modern. I don’t know why this is a discussion. Sorry about the rant.

    • Carlo

      I totally agree!
      there are no pictures from the 80’s with that phone-look.
      hmm if the third and the fourth pics are the inside of the Falcon, which ship is the second one?

      • Anonymous

        2nd one is also the falcon. Lower angle, chairs swiveled around, green screen not in place at that time.

        • Carlo

          mmm right…the “darker” chairs made me think for a moment it could be something else, but it is definitely the falcon with a different light

  • Anonymous

    1 looks like grievous’ship

  • buddha

    Has anyone looked at the picture yet?
    Anyone notices how the cockpit still looks timeless and classic, while that new portion looks bland and generic. Late TNG Star Trek Spaceship corridor?
    What does this type of gangway doing on the Millenium Falcon? It’s supposed to have a grungy, steady and functional look. Ver organic, almost slightly Gigerian and not some bland, hunky rectancular stuff you’d find on late (TNG) Trek.
    Oh wait JJ Abrams’s at the helm. Hes gonna turn SW into ST and vice versa

    • Anonymous

      The first pic here is likely NOT the Falcon, but part of some Imperial ship or other interior. The scale does not match the Falcon.

      • Jar Jar Abrams indeed

        JJ is going to mix these two sci genres until both lose their unique edge. What did you expect with Disney running the show?

  • Marc

    On pics 3 and 4: the cockpit photos – is it me or are there some subtle differences in the controls? also, could just be the angle, but the curve of the window looks SLIGHTLY different…

  • DEKKA129

    They’re all new photos. The seats are completely different from what we saw in the OT.

    That being said… WOO-HOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;^)

      ^Yeah, woo-hoo. finally something that was different from what we saw in the OT.

      I was starting to think that Lucasfilm completely ran out of ideas.

  • Club Obi Wan

    With all these OT fans disappointed in the presence of green screen, I’m surprised they haven’t lashed out and used the word “wanking” yet, which seems to be their favorite word when trying to formulate an argument.

  • #1 Original Trilogy Fan

    Oh no, greenscreen! greenscreen! I HATE greenscreen!!! oh well, I guess it’ll be ok as long as they use cheap plastic toy spaceships on wires and rods and not those icky icky fake-looking CG things! Yuuuuck!!!!

    By the way, I hate the podracing sequence in Episode I because it was OBVIOUSLY 100% CG with no “practical effects” used at all. I know this. I have an eye for these things.

    • Hey coke bottoms !

      The podrace was something monumental that no one had seen before. I love how it gets dismissed now. You are full of shit if you say the podrace sucked, you must be 100% cross-eyed. Go get an original copy of Sw trilogy and enjoy your mat lines!

      • JIMJAMBONKS

        Thank you! The podrace looked incredible and still does! And to think it lost an oscar to that matrix crap!!! Within a year even crap like scary movie were using that “matrix” effect. Lame!!!

      • iPadCary

        Agreed. TPM’s podrace is one of the greatest sequences ever in a movie. And you put it beautifully: it was like nothing no one’d ever seen before–THE hallmark of every SW movie. And no: the PT DOES NOT suck. It’s a shame GL isn’t doing at least some of the ST. Maybe Episode X, who knows ….

        …but since most people have 2 eye balls…shouldn’t it be ‘50% cross-eyed’?

    • RTF1138

      The Pod race is easily the best part of the movie. One can argue that it maybe a little long and ya okay maybe, but still the scene at still holds up the most. Plus Jake Lloyd does not speak in that entire scene which makes it even better. LOL

  • JIMJAMBONKS

    The first photo is not the interior of a star destroyer. Something new,without a doubt

    • Pomojema

      It reminded me more of the interior of General Grevious’s Invisible Hand, or the Trade Federation flagship that Anakin destroyed.

  • I like how such a cool post today got hijacked by PT-ers being annoying as hell… all the while no one seems to be discussing the actual content of the photos. New chairs for the Falcon, and an updated com station/ new shiny cockpit display? Can’t we just enjoy one thing without the post getting derailed a few comments in?

    • oh nvm the seats do look like the old ones… I’m just not used to seeing them unoccupied haha.

    • Man that’s so cool!

      Notice in one of those pics from the cockpit you can see that the studio apparently has glass ceilings to let natural light in? From that I gather that they might film a scene where the falcon is parked on a planet? Well… I guess that’s sort of a given anyway right?

    • Pomojema

      Great find!

  • Ian

    Listen, that this film has gone this long without any major leaks, despite hundreds of people working on it (many of whom are 20/30 somethings) is nothing short of amazing. It has nothing to do with NDAs and everything to do with respect.

And thanks for picking one of us to be in it too. If the new blood doesn’t jump on then piss off we don’t need them! A saying from our past when Star Trek and Star Wars came about.

    I tell you I think the Falcon is awesome I know it could outfly the Enterprise any day. I know it has less firepower but I think it would eventually clean its clock with the Falcon’s maneuverability Spock and Kirk would just give up. Eventually wear the Enterprises shields down with just cannon fire. :)

  • FarOutAndGroovy

    In photo 2, I see a clear difference in the size of the joysticks-the one on the right is large enough for a Wookie’s hands. Wookies have a longer lifespan so what if Chewie is still co-piloting?

    Who’s the pilot?
