'Star Wars: Episode 7': First Official Footage of the Millennium Falcon Has LandedNick Romano |
It's here, folks! After merely glimpsing it through leaked 'Star Wars: Episode 7' set photos, the first official footage of the Millennium Falcon has landed. Better still, there's a Batman twist to the video that you might not be expecting. See if you can spot the Dark Knight's Tumbler at the very end!
Look at that hunka junk.
J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot production company released a new video showcasing the Millennium Falcon from 'Star Wars: Episode 7' in all its glory. While the footage begins with that classic 'Star Wars' music as the camera pans under Han Solo's infamous space ship, it soon bursts into the theme to Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' movies before unveiling the camouflaged Tumbler hiding underneath. Remember how much Christian Bale's Batman loved hiding from the cops and his enemies in the most unexpected spots?
Abrams and 'Batman vs. Superman' director Zack Snyder have had a playful back and forth on social media, posting spoof photos of 'Star Wars'-Batman crossovers. The latest came from Snyder, who, in response to allegations that his new Batmobile had been stolen from the set, posted a photo of police taking a Stormtrooper into custody with the caption, "Cased closed."
Harrison Ford will return to his iconic role of Han Solo for 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' though we all remember how he was injured on set by a malfunctioning door of the Millennium Falcon. Despite this betrayal, it's good to see Solo's best gal back in action.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' will also return the likes of Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, as well as newcomers like John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Daisey Ridley, Dohmnall Gleeson, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie. The film is the first installment of a brand new trilogy, accompanied by spinoff films, and will hit theaters on December 18, 2015.
