Unless you live under a rock somewhere, you know that Disney bought the rights to the Star Wars franchise and is in the process of making new films in the franchise. Star Wars Episode 7 is set to launch in late 2015 if things stick to schedule and some rumors are trickling out from production. One of the rumors is that one of the most famous spacecraft in the franchise is getting a makeover.
That spacecraft is the Millennium Falcon, the ship piloted by Han Solo. Rumors trickling out suggest that in the new film the ship is no longer owned by Han Solo. This time out it is owned by Oscar Isaacs, the actor who will play an unnamed character in the new film.
We can expect all sorts of changes the new film is set 30 years after the event that took place in Return of the Jedi. Considering this ship is one of the most iconic vehicles in science fiction, it will surely be recognizable no matter what.
