We have been hearing rumors for quite some time that there is a full scale Millennium Falcon being constructed at Pinewood Studios in England for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII and beyond. It would only make sense with the connection to the original trilogy to bring back the iconic ship, but it looks like there may be a lot more being built for J.J. Abrams' film.

Den of Geek reports that the prop and model builders are being contracted for seven years, which includes the three films in the new trilogy as well as the three spin-offs. Getting all of the ducks in a row seems to be what Disney and Lucasfilm have been striving for, but there is an additional tidbit. The stages that are booked in advance at Pinewood list the STAR WARS: EPISODE VII requirements and beyond, but their office also lists INDIANA JONES 5.

While far from a confirmation, we have known for a good while that a fifth INDIANA JONES was on the horizon, especially with Harrison Ford wanting to do it. Booking a stage is likely just a formality, but the fact that it was even done as a precaution should give us more than a glimmer of hope. The likely answer is that Disney wants to hedge their bets and see what happens, but I would call this the most interesting development around INDIANA JONES since Disney secured full rights last year.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII hits theaters December 18, 2015.

Yes, models! CGI definitely has its place but the best way to accomplish effects are to mix things up and it is heartening that practical effects will be employed in concert with CG.

I'm just happy model builders are being hired for this. Sets, props, locations! Not just greenscreen, greenscreen, greenscreen!

Interesting to see how it pans out, are they attempting the build up Star Wars similar to the Marvel phases? I wonder how hard Lucas is biting his tongue, "Guys! We can do this all GREEN SCREEN!!!!"

Thanks for confirming that there is a possibility that the rumor you posted a month ago might actually be true, very informative. Also, thanks for confirming that Disney, having already stated they intended at least episodes 7, 8, and 9 and three spinoffs, hired model builders to, wait for it, build models for said movies.
