New Look at Millennium Falcon in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

News on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens front has slowed down considerably since the release of the teaser trailer last month, but the excitement level is still high. That's why we're pretty sure you'll want to check out a couple new glamor shots of the Millennium Falcon, even if they're just from a Fortune magazine photo shoot with Disney CEO Bob Iger. One of the shots features the life-size version of the ship on the sound stage in London while the other comes from a blueprint-esque piece of artwork from the cover of the latest issue. Oh, what I wouldn't give to be on set and sit in the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.
Here's the two new photos of the Millennium Falcon right here from Fortune:
Plus, they have a great new feature story on the rise of the new empire of Disney with Bob Iger.
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, continuing the beloved original trilogy about Luke, Leia, Han & Chewie that ended in 1983, is directed by J.J. Abrams, of the films Mission: Impossible 3, Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness. The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi, The Big Chill, The Bodyguard) and J.J. Abrams, with Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm producing. This debut is the beginning of a brand new saga, with another trilogy planned for this storyline, not to mention other standalone movies in this universe. Disney, after acquiring Lucasfilm, will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters worldwide on December 18th, 2015.
I'm sick of waiting!!! Aaaah!! Why God? Whyyyyyy?

Is it just me or does the "on set" photo look fake? Both Mr. Iger and Mr. Falcon look like they have been Photoshopped into the picture.

It is fake. In the article ILM actually makes a big deal about how realistic they think it looks. Which isn't encouraging because the only gripe I had about the Star Wars trailer was that the Millennium Falcon looked super CG. I really thought they would have shot a bunch of practical miniatures to breathe a more realistic vibe into this. Excited for the film, but a little worried about the overuse of CG in films in general, and I'm sure this will be no exception.

I just acquired some dvd's of the original trilogy, "Limited Edition" from 2004. They each have the untouched theatrical releases on the 2nd disc. I haven't seen that shit in probably 15-20 years. Far superior to the rereleases. God bless Amazon. Oh, and I'm super excited for this!

What exactly are those called so I know and can buy them? 🙂

Search Star Wars Limited Edition, or Empire... Limited Edition. The cases have a gold border. They're not cheap. 4 was like 35 bucks, but 5 and 6 were around 80. So worth it though.
