Full Scale Millennium Falcon Completed for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII!
I've heard rumors for quite awhile that J.J. Abrams was having a full 1:1 scale model of the Millennium Falcon built for Star Wars: Episode VII. Well, it's looking like those rumors could actually be true! Yahoo is reporting that the ship has actually already been completed! Both inside and out!
"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."
Wow! That is a sight I would love to see! I imagine if they ended up spending all that time and money on building this thing, that they plan on using it in multiple films. It would be even more awesome if it were fully functional!
I love that they actually built the ship at full scale! I have to see this thing in real life before I die.
Maybe one day they will lug it down to San Diego Comic-Con!
