UPDATED: Simon Pegg says that we will see the Millennium Falcon in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars

2 years agoby:

UPDATE: One of our readers pointed out a tweet from Pegg that referenced the article. Maybe these are things he wants for the next installment. Please let's see the Millennium Falcon once more.

Since J.J. Abrams is the one helming the first STAR WARS film since 2005s STAR WARS EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH, we can expect that he will keep most of the details under wraps. Luckily, we have someone like Simon Pegg who is willing to share a little, but not too much. He's basically waving what we want from the series in front of our faces and leaving us wanting more. Nerd do well.

During an interview with Total Film for their upcoming issue, Pegg spoke about how Abrams would breathe new life into STAR WARS: EPISODE VII but keep the things we love about it:

“What will he bring to the franchise? Everything that was missing from the last three. That’s what he did to Star Trek, really – invigorate it with a little bit of Star Wars magic. He switched it from science-fiction to science-fantasy."

“And I think if anyone can pull [Star Wars] out of the mire, it’s J.J. He’ll bring the fun back. Lucas seemed to misread what made the first ones great, and concentrate on things that people didn’t really care about, or wilfully ignore the things that people cared about. Whereas J.J. will embrace them all."

“We’re going to see the Millennium Falcon again. We’re going to see those characters again. All the things that we loved about the first three, we will see again."

Ah, it brings a little tear to my eye.

This is a much better way of saying my point other than my usual "Damn it, George! Why?"

Wonder how pissed people would get if they blew up the Millennium Falcon in this new film. Would that carry the same emotional weight as Luke or Chewie's death? Maybe not, but I could see it being used as an emotional edge to goad the audience.

I actually would like to see the Falcon get majestically laid to rest. I think a lot of fans are quite attached to some of the iconic ships in the series, and for the Falcon to get a nice big heroic, blaze of glory end (if handled respectfully enough) would make for a pretty emotional moment.

REALLY? it's a ship

and it was already in phantom Menace as a Cameo...right?.... it's really not that big of a big deal people... it's a ship... Star Wars 7 will be CRAWLING with them ... I'm sure that if Harrison Ford returns, the Wookie will return and the goddamn ship will be back too plus some X-wings and Tie fighters too... whooo-weee, joy? big deal.. it isnt a news worthy story plus it's all hype.

She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts. While Pegg may not know anything concrete at the moment, if the ship does appear, it will be like seeing an old friend again after many many years.

How cool would it be if Pegg were to have a pivotal role in the new Star Wars films or at least this one. I mean to be in Star Trek AND Star Wars.

There's no sci-fantasy in the new Treks.

Does he just mean more action?

Sloooow Down...

As Star Wars fans, Lets all just relax and take a deep breath. Pegg, indeed, said on his Twitter account that everything he said in that interview regarding episode VII was pure speculation on his part. He has had no discussions with JJA about the movie. Now, they're mates, I'm sure they've discussed it but not "formally discussed" it. As a big Star Wars nerd(for epsds IV, V, VI) I know I gravitate toward any nugget of info as if I were trapped in the Death Star tractor beam but I'm trying to

FYI: Pegg was on Twitter saying he doesn't "know" any of these things about Ep. VII, he was speaking about what he believed his friend Abrams would do.

After seeing Into Darkness last night (brilliant) I really wish JJ Abrams would do a third.
Whatever he does with Episode VII I have no doubt I will be smiling leaving the theater..
