Two More Looks at Star Wars: The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon

Fortune has published a new cover story that explores Disney CEO Bob Iger’s aggressive move into technology and how the company embraces and manages it across all of their divisions. If corporate speak doesn’t trip your trigger, maybe a couple new images of the Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon ship that accompanied the piece will.

The first image, seen above and also below in a higher resolution, features our favorite piece of junk partially built out on a set at Pinewoods Studio, Buckinghamshire, England. Iger was photographed in New York City and then superimposed into the image by the visual effects wizards at Industrial Light and Magic.

A second look at the Falcon appears on the cover of Fortune magazine and shows a rendering or model of the ship from a high 3/4s angle view. You can tell the image is from the modern Falcon for The Force Awakens by the new rectangular radar dish. Remember that the circular radar dish was knocked off the Falcon during the harrowing escape from an exploding Death Star II in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

Disney and Lucasfilm have been loose with Millennium Falcon images that range from set leaks to these official photos to the Falcon in flight during the Star Wars Episode 7 trailer. Maybe the first quarter of 2015 will show us who is piloting the ship and whether Chewbacca is still first mate. I’d be happy with a first look at Harrison Ford as Han Solo.

Also be sure to check out Star Wars: The Force Awakens concept art for some familiar faces, early Episode VII action figure prototypes, and a first listen to Yoda in Star Wars Rebels.
