    Han's done a lot of special modifications himself.

    Maybe it's got an X-Wing strapped to the top with duct tape? That would rock. :p

    KENNEDY: "JJ, if those Yahoo Reporters are still out there we can't let them see the Fal-"
    JJ: "No time to discuss this in a committee."
    KENNEDY: "I am NOT a committee!"

    Perhaps it's a tiny bit bigger because Han finally took Leia up on her offer to 'get out and push'? :p

    Okay, I'm done.

    My only problem is that Yahoo is the tabloid of the Internet so this is no more reliable than reading such news in the Sun.

    The Falcon is an ever changing ship... it can't ever be 'done'. Somethings bound to breakdown eventually on it. [face_tee_hee]

    If this is true, wouldn't this also mean Han Solo is back? If that's the case, I think we can count on the Big Three.

    Perhaps. But this is an unsubstantiated rumor, and not actual confirmation of anything.
    Also, according to the films, the Falcon has had other owners other than Han. Confirmation of one does not guarantee confirmation of the other. For all we know, Wicket the Ewok could have run off with it after the Battle of Endor...

    If true, sounds good. I'd like to see the Falcon return with some new modifications, especially if Han and/or Chewie are back. If it does return, I'd like to see it different than before, rather than exactly the same, since so much time has passed.

    Rachel and Thomas are codenames for Wicket and Kneesaa, respectively. You heard it here first!

    When it says "bigger" maybe they just mean the set?

    It'd be cool to see the Falcon with livery, like whatever the new Republic symbol is painted on it or something.

    Honestly, this is going to be surreal. Even more so than seeing Luke, Han, and Leia, who've all aged considerably since their last appearance. But seeing the Falcon, presumably mostly unchanged since 1983, flying around in a NEW Star Wars film... in space battles with 2015-quality special effects...

    My mind. It's boggling.

    After the recent R2-D2 news, I was expecting the article to say that it was built by members of the Iowa chapter of the Millennium Falcon Builder's Society.

    If it's true, I think the Falcon will be used at least a decent amount, why else would they build a full scale model when they could just build part of it and get away with it?

    As to those who are saying that would certainly mean Han is back, that's not necessarily true. It could be he's handed to down to a child and that child is flying her.

    Remember the rumors a couple months back about pics of the Falcon in construction that were floating around that never surfaced? This kind of lends credibility to the rumor that there might actually be images out there.

    Either way, keeping the Falcon central to the story would be a great thing for the new trilogy. It is as much of a character as any of the actors.

    To add: This smells to me like the supposed "insiders" may be studio plants leaking info for some cheap marketing. Not that it is a bad thing at all. It's not an earth-shattering reveal, but is enough to generate and keep a buzz going on during a lull in info releases.
