Panavision provided two customized, black-painted Millennium XL2 cameras specifically for the production. The "A" camera was nicknamed the "Death Star" and the "B" camera the "Millennium Falcon". See more »

Goofs

When Rey retrieves the light saber, she grips it with the switch clearly pointed away from her thumbs. After she turns it on and the camera angle changes, it has shifted in her grip so the switch is near her thumbs. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Lor San Tekka: This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Poe Dameron: Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka: Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Poe Dameron: Well, she certainly is that.

I have seen this. It was 1977/1980/1983. And the chick was called Leia and flaunted her thin beautiful body.

What is the reason they remade it with a Battlefield Earth craft that decades later still has power and runs???
