Tension rules the galaxy. The most powerful weapon of the Empire, the Death Star, threatens to disintegrate the last remaining of the resistance. A group of rebels sails their ships regardless hope. Everything is ready for the final battle involving lightsabers, hyperspace and spectacular space battles. In the middle of the apparent calm before the storm, a yellow cab passes through and hits one of our heroes. Wait… what? We should fire this writer.
“One thing for sure, Han Solo could not die hit by a cab” – Harrison laughs.

The highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII has been kept tightly under wraps since it was first announced, especially considering it’s set to film in May of this year for release in 2015. Even Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill are yet to be confirmed as returning to their iconic roles. But now, we may just have our first glimpse at some concept art from the film.
Behind this meeting between director J.J. Abrams, Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy, VFX supervisors John Knoll, production designer Rick Carter, Chief Strategy Officer Kim Libreri, and senior VP of Physical Production Jason McGatlin, we can clearly see the beloved Millennium Falcon, property of Han Solo.
