Star Wars: A Wild Millennium Falcon Appears!

So, more photos are leaking from the Star Wars set. On the one hand, by the time this movie actually comes out, we’ll have already seen it played out on Instagram and Vine, due to our inability to let a movie be filmed and produced before actually watching and analyzing it.

On the other, we get to see this:

…suddenly, I hate TMZ a little less, who did the legwork of acquiring this photo.

For the full effect, compare with this image of the fully constructed Falcon:

Yeah, not much doubt, here — that’s her, all right.

Other Star Wars news has been coming out — after the criticism of the initial casting over Episode VII’s lack of women (out of 13 announced cast members, two were women, one of which was Carrie Fisher), it’s now come out that Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie have been added to the cast.

Lupita Nyong’o is best known for her breakout role “Gwen” in 12 Years A Slave, for which she won an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role, immediately launching this then-unknown actress into prominence and becoming one of the most sought-after talents in Hollywood.

Gwendoline Christie is best known for her role Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones, a role she’s rocked since 2012. She’s having a very busy couple of years, not only taking on the Star Wars: Episode VII role, but also a major role in The Hunger Games series, playing Commander Lyme, a victor from District 2 who whooped the Capitol to free her District from their clutches.

Amusingly enough, Gwendoline’s been criticized for being “too pretty” for the role. Don’t know about you, but I’m not particularly concerned about her looks when this 6’3″ goddess is swinging a sword at me.

As always, we’ve got Star Wars gear in spades. When you’re ready to dress up for Comic-Con or Halloween, we’ll have you covered right here at Costume Kingdom.

Star Wars Episode VII: Now Filming

It’s finally begun. Production is about to begin on the latest installment of Star Wars from Director J.J. Abrams (Star Trek, Mission Impossible 3)! And it starts with a single photo:

 

In case you can’t quite catch it — the original three cast members will be returning. Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Leia Skywalker will all be back in the next film. Particularly for Ford, it appears, as Deadline.com reports that he will have a “gigantic role” in Episode VII.

We dug around and found some other previous cast photos, because why not?

From the original trilogy:

 

Something about black and white photography that brings out the movie magic. Or maybe it just looks older so we’re already nostalgic. Either way, it works.

And then, from the prequels:

So much hope in that photo. Of course, we had no idea that just off-screen was Jar Jar Binks, but what can you do?

At any rate, we’re excited to be getting Han, Luke and Leia back, if even for a little bit.

Check out the full statement here, and then take a look at what we’ve got in the Star Wars costume department over here.
