PORTLAND -- The blogosphere started buzzing Monday as spoiler pictures of costumes, sets and a big pig-monster from Star Wards Episode VII started to leak out via TMZ.

Tuesday, TMZ released photos of what appears to be the construction of a full-scale Millennium Falcon. Yahoo Movies reported back in November that Director JJ Abrams was going to build a full-scale Falcon, but Tuesday's images have caused a serious disturbance in the force.

The photos show the Falcon from several angles, as well as an X-wing Fighter (and X-wing variant) under construction and a vivisected pig-monster (he must have a leading role).

The Nerdiverse was quick to respond with speculation.

Screenrant said that since it believed Han Solo (Harrison Ford) has a big role in Episode VII he might  dust off the old wheels for one last run. Or because newcomer Daisy Ridley is playing the daughter of Solo and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Ridley might be "getting a ride in Han’s equivalent of a prized antique car."

If Star Wars memory serves, the Falcon was more old jalopy than vintage roadster. So, Ridley might just a need a beater to get her to the Space Mall and back.
