Jakku may not be the only new planet to be introduced in the upcoming movie “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” A report about some of the Lego toys from the movie reveals what is said to be the name of another planet. Meanwhile, director J.J. Abrams talked about getting injured while trying to help Harrison Ford on the set of the movie.
MintInBox reported there are two Lego sets from the upcoming movie along with some new toys from the franchise. One of the toys is said to be a set for “Battle on Takodana” and another set is for “The Pirate Transport.”
The report suggests the name Takodana is of a new planet in the movie. No details about the planet have been made available. It's unclear whether the planet is a desert planet like Tatooine or if it’s more like the moon Yavin 4. The producers of the movie have also so far not confirmed there will be another new planet in the movie.
The only new planet that has been confirmed in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is the desert planet Jakku, which was mistaken by many to be Tatooine. Jakku is the home of Rey (Daisy Ridley) and is seen in the trailers of the movie.
Some of the action sequences on the planet involve the iconic Millennium Falcon taking on Imperial TIE fighters. Harrison Ford, who reprises the role of Han Solo, had injured his ankle on the set of the ship while filming. The Hollywood Reporter said Abrams injured his back trying to help Ford on the set at the time the actor’s ankle was injured.
The director apparently had to wear a back brace under his clothes while filming the movie. The director also revealed Ford recovered from his injury much faster than himself. "The guy is like a real life superhero," Abrams reportedly said of Ford.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is slated to be released on Dec. 18. The plot of the movie is set about 30 years after the events of the 1983 movie and the Empire has been reorganized and is now being called the First Order. The movie will introduce two new villains Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis).
