Star Wars spotted at Greenham Common

By Graham Hill

September 22, 2014

As every Star Wars fan now knows, the Millennium Falcon and two X-wing fighters have been spotted at Greenham Common in West Berkshire, just a 40 mile drive along the M4 to Pinewood Studios, and home to Verbatim – Thames Valley’s leading call answering service for businesses.
With ‘Episode 7’ of Star Wars currently back on track and into its second chunk of filming at Pinewood, the production is approaching the end of its primary shooting phase, and with various locations around the UK being used – scenes have been shot at Puzzlewood, Skellig Island… now Berkshire!
A quick look at the Greenham Common site shows the legendary Millenium Falcon, much-loved stock light YT-1300 freighter owned by Han Solo and co-piloted by his partner Chewbacca.
Early rumours seem to suggest that Solo no longer owns the ship and that the character portrayed by Oscar Isaacs is the new captain of the Falcon. Nobody outside the production knows as yet but there’s no doubt that the ship is looking in great shape, even in her half-completed form, says earth bound Greenham Common based Verbatim. Should non-earthlings descend on Newbury, don’t worry – Verbatim’s 24/7 emergency call out has you covered.

May the calls be with you!
