When the first teaser trailer arrived for JJ Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, one of the big moments (let’s be fair, the entire thing was awesome) was seeing the gorgeous Millennium Falcon whizzing through the sky. No doubt this was a hands in the air type moment for Star Wars fans everywhere, but has Abrams created the perfect replica?
In the early stages of Star Wars episode VII, Abrams released a really cool video which showed a fully built Millennium Falcon, and man it looked stunning. However, just how well has the ship been designed, and does it look the same inside as what George Lucas’ original creation did? Well, returning Star Wars star Mark Hamill recently revealed how it felt walking into the Millennium Falcon for the first time since The Empire Strikes Back.
When speaking to ExtraTV, Hamill revealed:
“It was interesting to see it helmed by someone who is such a fan of the originals like J.J. Abrams. It’s really about setting up for a new generation. I can’t describe the feeling… the déjà vu of walking onto the Millennium Falcon, remembering all these details that they’ve gotten exactly right… It still seems surreal to me and hard to believe it’s actually happening.”
The key point to take away from this statement is that “they’ve gotten exactly right” the details on the ship, something which is very, very encouraging. However, in all honesty, did we really expect Abrams to get anything wrong here? I certainly didn’t.
