Star Wars 7 Ice Planet Confirmed; But Is It Hoth?
Spoilers often come from the strangest of places. Today, we have word that former James Bond actor Roger Moore, star of the Star Wars-influenced Moonraker, has seen the Ice Planet set in Star Wars: Episode VII with his own eyes. And Harrison Ford was present. But did he visit Hoth?
Roger Moore refused to say more about what he saw during his time spend on set, but this does match up with previous rumors that Star Wars: Episode VII is returning to the snowy planet seen during the first act of The Empire Strikes Back.
BBC: Ooh, wow!
BBC: So, what were they filming that day? Can you tell me?
Roger Moore: Well, yes! They were filming something with a lot of mountains and snow.
BBC: Okay, hmm.
Roger Moore: But I'm assigned to secrecy.
BBC: Did you really have to sign a thing?
Roger Moore: Oh, erm... No.
BBC: It wouldn't surprise me! They are crazy, those people, so...
Roger Moore: But they have to be secret about it! What happens with film is that, somehow or another, people get their hands on outtakes and prints, and they print them and they sell them for television in the Philippines - I had a Filipino working for us years ago and he said "Oh, my family have already seen the film," which hadn't even had its royal premiere!
BBC: Oh! That's extraordinary, isn't it?
The plot of Star Wars: Episode VII will reportedly find Han Solo and Chewbacca on a desperate search to find a missing Luke Skywalker. During their mission to retrieve him, they are said to visit some iconic locations, such as Endor, Dagobah, Tatooine and Hoth. Leaked Snowtrooper and Han in Hoth gear concept designs further confirmed this. But it has been teased that this snowy, mountain filled landscape Roger Moore speaks of is not actually Hoth, but a different planet occupied by the Sith.
