Ok, prepare to get giddy…

Do these images show a full-sized Millenium Falcon and slightly different X-Wing Fighter (look at the engines) being constructed on a soundstage in London? Who are we kidding, of course they do!

TMZ leaked the images today saying: “Sources close to the Rebel Alliance tell us the pics were taken inside an uber-secret location in the UK — where different set pieces, props and creatures are being constructed. At first glance, it looked like run-of-the-mill set pieces … until one of our top “Star Wars” nerds in the office spotted the legendary Millennium Falcon in mid-construction — at least that’s how it looks.”

If the images are real we don’t think it can be denied that they are two of cinema’s most iconic space ships seem set to return to the galaxy far, far away in Star Wars: Episode VII… and yes, we’re giddy as hell!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
