J.J. Abrams has a rebel spy in his midst! The filmmaker is notoriously known for keeping his sets highly under wraps, but someone has infiltrated his top-secret operation on ‘Star Wars: Episode VII‘. Yesterday amidst the announcement of two new cast members heading to a galaxy far, far away, pictures from what looks like a Tatooine marketplace found their way online. Now, even more pictures have surfaced featuring two very recognizable vessels.
Once again, TMZ has the exclusive photos, but this time it’s on a soundstage in the UK where giant set pieces are currently being erected for the upcoming ‘Star Wars’ film. At first glance, fans will immediately recognize Han Solo’s ship the Millennium Falcon, as well as an X-Wing Fighter. Plus, there’s another look at the massive alien shown in previous pictures. You can check them out by clicking on the picture below:
Considering the amount of secrecy Abrams tends to have on his sets, it’s shocking that these pictures even got out. One has to imagine that Disney and Lucasfilm can’t be too happy about this either. Regardless, it is cool to see the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy making an appearance once again. We already know that Harrison Ford will be reprising his role as Han Solo, but will he be the pilot of the ship in the new trilogy? Maybe he’s passed it on to the kids he’s had with Princess Leia? We could speculate on this for days, so if you’re gonna do it, do it in our comment section.
