As "Star Wars: Episode VII" Production Halts For Two Weeks, Fans Online Are Excited About New "Trailer"
The new Star Wars looks cool... but the trailer is just fan-made.
As Disney moves forward on Star Wars: Episode VII production, fans just can’t wait to see some new content. In the run-up to the movie, some people have been duped by a fan-made “trailer” which popped up on Youtube. The video, which has been viewed more than a million times, features a range of vehicles used in previous movies interwoven with airport buses at Frankfurt Airport.
Harrison Ford is down, but not out, as filming pauses for two weeks.
"Seems like the biggest German airport plays a key role as an imperial starport in the new episode," reads a blurb attached to the video.
Judging by comments, left on the video, it managed to fool a fair few people. Visual Effects Expert Philip Dobree told The Guardian the video was likely made by a fan "mucking about" and would have taken about two weeks to put together. The real film is being filmed on location in Abu Dhabi, The UK and Iceland and will be released in December 2015.
Meanwhile, production has reportedly been halted for two weeks, as Harrison Ford recovers from the leg injury he recently acquired on set.
"In August, the team will take a brief, two-week hiatus while adjustments to the current production schedule are made as actor Harrison Ford recovers from a leg injury," Disney said in a statement posted on Sunday on the website StarWars.com.
Ford made his return to Star Wars along with Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.
The delay will not affect the previously announced release date.
