Millennium Falcon Revealed in Latest ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Set Photos
After releasing a flurry of photos from the Abu Dhabi set of Star Wars: Episode VII on Monday, TMZ returns with something that will excite even the most jaded franchise fan: photos of the Millennium Falcon under construction at what’s described as “an uber-secret location in the U.K.”
The gallery also includes shots of an unfinished X-wing fighter and what appears to be the same creature shown in the photos from Abu Dhabi, which is doubling as Tatooine.
