December 2, 2013 – I reported earlier (12 SEP 2013) that a replica of the Millenium Falcon was reportedly being constructed at Pinewood Studios in England, in preparation for the filming of “Star Wars: Episode VII”. And now there are new rumors that construction of the full-scale 1:1 replica is complete – both the interior and exterior.
A Yahoo newsfeed states that a “full-scale 1:1 Millennium Falcon has been built as well as the interiors of the ship for filming. 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.”
Keep in mind that these are unconfirmed rumors, but they are persistent. Nothing is official until Disney/Lucasfilms confirms the reports, but they are tantalizing nonetheless.
