In response to Zack Snyder’s image featuring a Stormtrooper being arrested for stealing the Batmobile, Star Wars VII director J.J. Abrams has released a great video featuring the Millennium Falcon.
Zack Snyder and J.J. Abrams continue to have fun with the filming of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Star Wars VII. You may remember Snyder released an image last week featuring a Stormtrooper being put into a police car with the Batmobile beside him.
The two directors have been playing photo-tag with each other, but now Abrams has released a hilarious video featuring a specific vehicle attached to the Millennium Falcon.
Below the Millennium Falcon we see the Batmobile featured in Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. It’s painted to blend in with the Millennium Falcon and is attached below the spacecraft.
Even the music switches from Star Wars to Batman as we see the camera pan to reveal Batman’s Tumbler. Abrams has thrown the ball back into Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder’s court.
The two directors continue to mash-up Star Wars and Batman material as they finish filming their respective films. We look forward to seeing the two directors continuing their fun between shooting in the future.
Warner Bros. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice release date is set to March 25, 2016. Star Wars VII has its release date set for December 18, 2015.
The Bad Robot production company tweeted a fantastic production photo for Star Wars: Episode VII of director J.J. Abrams and R2- D2 hanging out with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy at the workshop. Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to be released on December 18, 2015.
As “Episode VII” continues pre-production, Lawrence Kasdan and director J.J. Abrams have assumed screenwriting duties for the film. Kasdan, who has been serving as a consultant on the film, is a veteran of several classic Lucasfilm productions, writing the screenplay for “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and serving as co-screenwriter for “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.” Acclaimed director and screenwriter Abrams’ credits include “Super 8,” “Mission: Impossible III,” “Fringe,” and “Lost.”
“I am very excited about the story we have in place and thrilled to have Larry and J.J. working on the script,” states Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. “There are very few people who fundamentally understand the way a “Star Wars” story works like Larry, and it is nothing short of incredible to have him even more deeply involved in its return to the big screen. J.J. of course is an incredible storyteller in his own right. Michael Arndt has done a terrific jobbringing us to this point and we have an amazing filmmaking and design team in place already prepping for production.”
Location scouting, production design, casting, and costume design are already underway on “Episode VII.” A team of gifted artists are working to bring the latest installment of the “Star Wars” saga, including director of photography Dan Mindel (“Mission: Impossible III,” “Star Trek”), production designers Rick Carter (“Lincoln,” “Avatar”) and Darren Gilford (“Oblivion,” “TRON: Legacy”), costume designer Michael Kaplan (“Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol”), special effects supervisor Chris Corbould (“Skyfall,” “The Dark Knight Rises”), sound designer Ben Burtt (“Lincoln,” “Star Wars: Episodes I-VI”), re-recording mixer Gary Rydstrom (“Jurassic Park,” “Saving Private Ryan”), supervising sound editor Matthew Wood (“Star Trek Into Darkness,” “The Master”) of Skywalker Sound, and visual effects supervisor Roger Guyett (“Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End”) of Industrial Light & Magic. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, with Tommy Harper (“Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” “Star Trek Into Darkness”) and Jason McGatlin (“Tintin,” “War of the Worlds”) serving as executive producers.
