Rumor. The Millennium Falcon is always a safe bet, so naturally there have been some scattered reports that it’s in construction for Episode VII. And Wednesday Scum and Villainy reported that a full-scale set has been built off-site and is ready to move into Pinewood. Making Star Wars is rightly skeptical, but with countless Star Wars films in the future – not to mention possible theme park attractions – it may just be a wise investment.
Gaming. Also a rumor: Kotaku thinks there’s “an open-world Star Wars title,” in the works at EA Canada.
Box office. The Warcraft movie has moved out of the range of Episode VII to March 2016. Is Warcraft even still a thing?
We first heard last year that A New Dawn was a possible Episode VII title, but now it’s come up again, via newbie rumormonger TalkBacker. More interesting perhaps is this:
“… yes the falcon will make a big appearance, 1.1 scale size cross section is being constructed over at Pinewood, along with a power plant set and the famous cantina.”
The Millennium Falcon is pretty much a given if Harrison Ford signs on – maybe even if he doesn’t – but thecantina? Hrm. As always, I remain skeptical, particularly of the title bit. But whatever Episode VII turns out to be named, I don’t expect we’ll hear for a while.
