First, let's all just take a moment a reflect on how cool it is that concept art of a scene from Star Wars Episode VII, featuring Han Solo and Chewbacca actually exists! Our friends over at MakingStarWars.net have gotten their hands on some more concept art (that hasn't been leaked to the public...yet) of just that. Now, as per usual, this could turn out to be false or the scene could wind up not making it into the final movie, but if you are trying to avoid all Episode VII spoilers then stop reading now! This is your official SPOILER ALERT! If you're cool with spoiler then, scroll down.
According to Jason from MakingStarWars.net,
A very green mixed deciduous forest paints the background. This location is in the thick of it, that’s for sure. There is a large hole in the ground. The hole is in the shape of a hexagon. The hole is for a metallic structure of some kind, very Imperial looking, indicating an underground Imperial base. Each line of the hexagon has a pillar sticking out of it about the size of a man. These could be to give troops exiting the underground facility some cover to fight off attackers, if the pillars serve any function at all. Each line of the hexagon inside has two lights, which illuminate the underground structure we can barely see into. There appears to be a ramp inside leading to the surface.
Outside of the structure is a data terminal of some kind. It reminds me of Star Wars Galaxies in a way. But who cares about that?
Emerging from the “Imperial hole in the ground” are none other than Han Solo and the mighty Chewbacca! Han Solo wears his classic black vest and pants. His gun is raised in the air, ready to shoot first if need be! Chewbacca stands to his left, he appears to hold a big riffle type blaster, no robotic hand, and his classic bandolier over his shoulder. We can see the two heroes from an angle behind the pillars they are using for cover as they look towards the camera for any foes to attack.
So it appears Han and Chewie have a scene or sequence together in the film where it is just them.
In the concept art, they appear ready for a straight fight, but they’re still sneaking around.
Very interesting. Really makes you wonder how Han and Chewie got into this mess. I guess we'll have to wait until December 18, 2015 to find out!
