More Millennium Falcon, Cast and Plot Rumors.

star wars

Another rumor suggesting that a full scale 1:1 Millennium Falcon has been build for the upcoming Star Wars movies and attractions. Also hit the jump for some more rumored names that auditioned for Episode 7 and more…

A quick recap of the previous Falcon rumors:

According to “talkbacker”:

    “… 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:

“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 came from Star Wars: Episode 7 production designers Doug Chiang and Ian McCaig:

 “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…”

Now Scum and Villainy say that the Millennium Falcon has already been build but outside Pinewood Studios and is expected to be transported to the studio soon.

According to a source close to production:

“A full-scale 1:1 Millennium Falcon has been built as well as the interiors of the ship for filming,” they explained. “The Falcon is done – inside and out. The sets were built off-site, ready to move when Lucasfilm/Bad Robot were ready to move into Pinewood.”

If the rumors are true then probably Disney has bigger plans for the Falcon. I doubt they will bother building a full scale ship just for one movie. Maybe it’ll be used in the rumored Han Solo spin-off movie as well as in one of Disney’s future Star Wars attractions.

And here are some more rumors from JediNews’ source Jedi Master SQL:

JN: Do you think the Big 3 will be announced as a group or individually?

SQL: I have only seen evidence for one of them having signed. I am not joining the sceptics suggesting they are not all back, but I can only tell you what I know.

JN: What can you tell us about the outline for Episode Seven?

SQL: Very little, but one small hint. Star Wars The Old Republic has added a planet that has long been mentioned but never seen on film…

Every week I hear more amazing actors linked with the roles, and I feel that we will have an incredible cast when all is said and done. Just this past two weeks I have heard the names of Emmanuelle Chriqui, Alexis Dziena, and Taissa Farmiga all linked with roles – all exceptionally talented actresses. Whether any of them are cast is still unknown, but if you consider the quality of the people they are looking at – you can see the quality of the effort.

    hmmm Korriban maybe?

    • November 28, 2013 at 2:01 pm

      perhaps dantooine because korriban has not yet been mentioned (in the movies I mean)

    • November 28, 2013 at 2:18 pm

      I don’t remember dantooine being in the the old republic unless they recently added it?

    • December 2, 2013 at 7:24 pm

      they said The old republic (the mmo not kotor) ADDED a planet. My guess is tython

      Based on the description of tough orphan girl, that could totally be a place she would have grown up. Would be really cool to see too!

      Yea it can be! i remeber nar shaddaa because of Dark Forces 2 game! and it was a very violent, dark and underground place!

    • December 1, 2013 at 8:35 am

      Ord Mantell

  • November 28, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    Also… could be an idea for the Falcon. After the movies… They could put it in the park at Disney World! Maybe even have roped off walkthroughs!

    I must be a nerd because I think that’d be amazing lol.

    • November 28, 2013 at 6:30 pm

      After writing it I did regret my choice of words… we are actually geeks. Nerds are more academic’s lol. Having said that… I think I further proved me point! 😀

  • November 28, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    I could be a lot of planets lol. My guess is Dantooine as it being mentioned in the original series, and also it is the planet that the new Star wars rebels show starts on.

  • November 28, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    I don’t understand: this planet is mentioned IN THE MOVIES? Cause the only planet mentioned and never shown is Dantooine. Or, maybe, Kato Neimoidia, mentioned in ep 3 by Obi-Wan.

    • November 28, 2013 at 8:59 pm

      Cato Neimoidia¨*

    • December 2, 2013 at 1:57 am

      Corellia, bro… It has to be Corellia. It was mentioned, I think: the Millenium Falcon was of corellian design. And its Hans birthplace, for gods sake.

      And it cant be Cato Nemoidia: That wasnt present in SWTOR, or either of the KOTORs for that matter, while Corellia was.

  • November 28, 2013 at 8:23 pm

    Gotta be Korriban. Works well with introducing a new (maybe old) mega villain. Plus it is way awesome.

  • November 28, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    Ord Mantell, mentioned in Empire. Han runs into a bounty hunter?

    • November 29, 2013 at 1:10 am

      That has to be it. Ord Mantell is one of the starting planets in The old republic video game

  • November 28, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    Fucking shit. This is the third time typing this, I keep forgetting to hit Anonymous so it keeps deleting it after I type…

    Anyway, after looking it up, it looks like Corellia and Ord Mantell are the two planets on SWTOR that have been mentioned in the films but not featured… and Corellia seems like a more likely place to have in Ep 7 since that’s where Han is from, and they could have the Solo family continuing to live there…

    • November 29, 2013 at 1:13 am

      I don’t remember Corellia being in the old republic game. The only two on the list that I remember are Ord Mantel and Nar Shadda. I might just not be remembering Corellia though

    • November 29, 2013 at 1:27 am

      My bad Corellia is the level 50 zone. So there are 3 that I found Corellia, Nar shadda and Ord Mantel

    • November 29, 2013 at 9:59 pm

      Nar Shadda was actually in KotOR 2 already

    • November 29, 2013 at 10:23 pm

      I didn’t think Nar Shaddaa was ever mentioned in the movies… the list says Ep 4, but I don’t remember it ever being mentioned in any of the movies… That would leave Corellia and Ord Mantel…

    • November 29, 2013 at 11:06 pm

      Also, since the SQL guy said that they “added” a planet to SWTOR, I believe that’s Corellia, since it’s one of the highest level planets, and Nar Shaddaa is one of the earlier planets, so I don’t know the history of the game, but it would make sense that they added Corellia at a later date… and Corellia I could totally see being a planet that would make sense to feature from a story / production point of view…

  • November 29, 2013 at 6:48 am

    I wonder what modifications have been done to the falcon in the past 30 years?

    • November 29, 2013 at 8:33 am

      I wonder if they replaced the dish?

    • November 29, 2013 at 8:55 am

      Touch-screen controls, voice activation, went from diesel fuel to electricity, upgraded from cassette to CD player, TomTom GPS system (with Darth Vader voice) and yes, they lost the dish and went to high-speed fiber-optic cables…

    • November 29, 2013 at 5:46 pm

      And an iPhone dock.

  • November 29, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    What about Kessel?

  • November 29, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    They did something similar for Empire in 81/82. The Millenium Falcon was constructed in sections by a company in Wales, before going by truck to Elstree.

  • November 29, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    I’ve never understood it when an ‘inside source’ hints at something. You’ve already made the decision to approach a website under an alias in order to leak info. So, leak the info!

  • November 29, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    Unless you’re only one of a select few people that knows something, so the chances of being caught and fired are pretty high.

    And in all honesty, do we really want to know? I’d rather be surprised and overwhelmed like I was at 2009’s Star Trek.

  • November 29, 2013 at 5:56 pm

    If you really don’t want to know why risk reading the article?

  • November 30, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    ^ You win the Internets

  • November 30, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Nar Shadda is never mentioned in any of the films, first appearing in Dark Empire. 1992

  • November 30, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    It’s Alderaan

  • November 30, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    Korriban but dantooine sounds right

  • December 2, 2013 at 1:59 am

    Im assuming its Corellia, unfortunately (because others would be more interesting).

    Corellia is important, and furthermore, both Solo and the Millenium Falcon are from there. So since Leia’s homeworld Alderan exploded Solo probably moved back to Corellia with her to make children there.

    • December 3, 2013 at 1:31 pm

      The problem with this is that Corellia is similar to Coruscant. This is hardly old west in its feel.

    • December 3, 2013 at 2:30 pm

      Since the production team has been pretty clear that they are not allowing themselves to be bound in any way by the Expanded Universe stuff, Corellia can be any old thing they want it to be. If they use it in the sequel trilogy, it could very well have an old west feel to it.

    • December 3, 2013 at 6:25 pm

      This is true, but… he did specifically refer to a planet in SWTOR, so its worth noting that in the time of the old republic in the game it is very, very Urban, of course episode seven is thousands of years later, so…

    • December 3, 2013 at 6:53 pm

      Abrams never said that every location in the film has to be a desolate place… I thought Corellia was pretty Earth-like… this would hopefully make for a place that they could film on-location instead of CGI…

  • December 2, 2013 at 8:24 am

    All fantasy guys.

  • December 2, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    Disney’s stupid
