Star Wars Production Meeting Lucafilm

It suffered some minor damage while blowing up the second Death Star at the end of Episode VI, but it looks like Han Solo's trusty ship will still be spaceworthy when the next instalment of Star Wars comes around. A photo of the Episode VII production team has found its way online, featuring JJ Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, Rick Carter, Jason McGatlin, Jon Knoll, Kim Libreri and a few interesting pieces of concept art in the background: most noticeably the familiar crescent exhaust of the Millennium Falcon.

The last picture of the man with the beard? That's Alec Guiness in Return of the Jedi, telling Luke about vader and his twin sister. More

RE: Will The Millennium Falcon Be In Star Wars: Episode VII?
The pic you've labelled "shoulder and chin of a character" appears to be a paused video from the original trilogy, as that's the Luke on Dagobah. More
