So, this week's biggest rumor is without a doubt that the Millenium Falcon is back and that it will be featured so prominently that they have built or will build a full scale model.
The rumor also has me asking whether this means we'll see Han Solo flying it again, or whether someone else owns it now, like Lando Calrissian owned it before Han Solo. I'm hoping for the latter, but if we have new characters I wouldn't mind a new interesting spacecraft and let Falcon be the magnificent design it was in the original trilogy.
One rumor also suggests that the Episode VII plans to rebuild the Mos Eisley cantina. This is certainly an idea I do not like. We already had a great, classic scene in Star Wars, returning there will be yet another case of "diminishing returns". Give us new places and locations. We've seen Tatooine in four episodes already. So far, if you're looking at the rumors (the return of Luke, Han, Leia, R2, C3P0, Millenium Falcon and the cantina) you'd think they are making a reboot of Star Wars instead of a new episode.
Not sure if Millenium Falcon will show up in Episode VII. I'd love to see it in action again, of course, but it could go so wrong...it feels kind of wrong to bring it back, in my opinion. It served its purpose in the original trilogy.
