Here’s another update from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII in Greenham Common. We’ve already seen a couple of photos of the Millennium Falcon and some other ships on the set, but the Spanish website 20minutos has scored some really impressive close-up photos of the vehicles that are worth checking out if you’re obsessed with every tiny bit of minutiae that surrounds this upcoming film.
Elsewhere, StarWars7News has a transcript of a conversation with former James Bond actor Roger Moore, who recently visited the set of Episode VII. You can read the full transcript at the link, but the gist is that Moore witnessed them filming “something with a lot of mountains and snow,” which have led many to assume that the film will be returning to the ice planet of Hoth. But early reports have indicated that may not be the case, and with Abrams bringing back the primary cast from the original trilogy, I’d be VERY surprised if he actually returned to familiar planets as well. The whole thing with this new trilogy is supposed to be about expanding on Lucas’ original vision, and while I understand that financially it makes sense to bring back old characters (for familiarity’s sake, toy sales, etc.), it really doesn’t matter what planet the characters are on.
What do you think? Are we heading back to Hoth in Episode VII?
