I actually kind of like the idea of an Imperial Civil War, if for no other reason than an excuse to get chrome stormtroopers! But that sort of scenario to me would have made a lot more sense 2-3 years out from Jedi maybe, not 30.

Really, I guess I just feel like it detracts from the "ultimate happy ending" fantasy in my head where the people all rose up right after ROTJ and the Imperial machinery was dismantled overnight. The Republic was restored and their was a golden age of peace and prosperity free of Sith, Imperials, and Vong.  :P Childishly naive maybe, but I was seeing the movie as a kid after all.

I also feel like it's kind of a been there done that type of thing where I was hoping for something less derivative of the first movies. But that's not to say they can't make it all work marvelously. They've hit all the right notes to this point anyway.

The Falcon is being constructed at Royal Air Force Station Greenham Common in Berkshire. An X-Wing is on site as well.

They need to keep this one when filming is over and put it in a museum somewhere.

I have a place for it in my backyard if they're looking for a place to keep it after filming is done. #ultimatehancollectible

Good thing they put those red arrows in there so we could figure out what part is the Millennium Falcon and which part is just grass.

Glad at least one other person thinks like me.

Are they flying drones over the film location to get some of these photos?

I can't see the X-Wing - can someone toss in a red arrow where I'm supposed to look?  It could be anywhere.
