    If the Dantooine Enclave makes so much as a cameo in EP7... to see such an overt KOTOR reference in a theatrical Star Wars film, my body might just stop working. The ensuing nerdgasm would be too powerful.

    As much as I give flack to the EU fans who want to see parts of it canonized, I am admittedly a huge fan of the KoTOR era (and earlier) of the EU. I think that stepping 1000's of years away from Skywalkers and Solos for a show or spinoffs or even it's own trilogy would be absolutely amazing.

    Greenham Common was a place that was very prominent in the 1980's, if memory serves me correctly there were protests there about the storage of cruise missiles from the US.

    I don't know what kind of access the EP7 crew have there, but potentially there could be some interesting bunker interior stuff there too maybe.

    You are correct about Greenham Common's former use. It was also the site of some serious anti-nuke protests.

    Yeah, I'm getting a bit of a Yavin vibe too. Not so much the grass part (obviously), but the bunkers resemble the temple on Yavin IV.

    The site is now common land, so there won't be any military restrictions or anything like that. The missiles have long gone. :)

    I´d say those X-Wings look more like the ones we know rather than the one Abrams showed us.

    I have it from a very reliable source (my brain) that this is for a flashback sequence. Carrie's daughter, along with young Han and Luke lookalikes (young Chewie is easier to achieve) will feature at a distance alongside the classic X-Wings and the MF. The main focus of the scene will be Sith Inquisitors in the shadows...;)

    From that video looks like 3 X-Wings instead of 2. Hope these dudes realize the fans like new ships we are not all nostalgia whores. It was rad to get a new major star fighter with every prequel film.

    The engines, they look small, like those on the classic fighters.

    You have sharp vision to discern that from a video that was taken hundreds of feet above the ground...with the object concealed in a tarp :p

    The engines look small in this screenshot as well

    I'm fast, HanSolo29. There's no way Greedo could fire a shot before I did. :cool:

    EDIT: But not fast enough that Leoluca Randisi posted before I did...making it necessary that I should've quoted your post. :oops:[face_tee_hee]
