When I told you guys about the opening of Star Wars Episode VII I told you that Han Solo wasn't flying the Falcon at the beginning of the film. I left out what his new ride was because I was worried about spoiling stuff. But now that Indierevolver has published concept art of
Han wearing Imperial rank markers oops, just wearing his usual rank markers, as per Germain Lussier at Slashfilm, I feel like I can tell you:
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.
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.
There are other familiar spaceships in this movie, incuding 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.
Oh, and back to Han - you will get to see him use a lightsaber once again.
