I guess every day is Star Wars day now. Or at least until all these new films come out. There are quite a few Star Wars: Episode VII rumors floating around out there right now including the whole villains thing, the Stormtrooper look and more, but this piece is Han Solo-specific because not only did we just get a look at what he’ll be wearing in the new film, but we’ve also got more details on what he’ll be flying, too.
Hit the jump to check out concept art for two of Harrison Ford’s costumes for Episode VII as well as details on the ship he’ll be flying instead of the Millennium Falcon. J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII opens on December 18, 2015.
Let’s start with Han’s new clothes, which are actually surprisingly similar to what he dons in the original films. The sketches come from Indie Revolver and, as their article suggests, one design seems very Hoth appropriate. They call the other outfit suitable for Endor conditions and while that may be accurate, the attire does seem like it’d fit in many more places beyond that.
Apparently Indie Revolver has seen about six dozen Han Solo costume designs, so they’re saying that he could have quite a few wardrobe changes throughout the film. However, they do note that this is just concept art. There’s always a chance certain designs won’t make it into the film. They also point out a small detail that can be tough to spot in the photos they posted – Han’s got two gun holsters now. One looks to be for the DL-44 blaster he’s always carried, but what about the other? Could that mean Han will be rocking two of them this time around?
There’s also a rumor that Han’s got a brand new ride in the film. We told you a little bit about it when some story information popped up about a month ago, but besides the fact that the ship isn’t the Millennium Falcon, there weren’t any details on the new vehicle at all. However, now that Indie Revolver showed off that Han Solo concept art, Badass Digest came back to reveal they were holding out on us and offered up this additional information on Han and Chewie’s ship:
“According to my sources Han and Chewie are piloting a Super Star Destroyer. I wasn’t 100% sure on this, but the image of Han with Imperial rank sells me.”
To be honest, I never would have guessed that that was an Imperial rank marker on Han’s coat in the Indie Revolver image, but perhaps the marker just got revamped for the new films. I guess the original design might look a little hokey now.
Badass also goes on to spill some information pertaining to the Millennium Falcon’s whereabouts:
“I believe the Falcon is in the hands of Oscar Isaac’s character, who is very much the Lando Calrissian of this movie – all the way down to wearing a cape.”
On top of having a Lando-type character in the new film, apparently we’ll also get to see some more familiar ships as well:
“There are other familiar spaceships in this movie, including three variations on TIE Fighters. There’s the classic design, the TIE Interceptor and a new generation TIE Bomber – the pods on these are stacked, not side-by-side.”
Before wrapping up, Badass threw in this one last note:
“Oh, and back to Han – you will get to see him use a lightsaber once again.”
