Are these the first Star Wars: Episode VII set photos?

04.17.2014

Some of J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: EPISODE VII might be filmed in Morocco, however The National has posted a few photos they believe are of a secret STAR WARS set located in the Abu Dhabi desert. According to their sources, several crew members have already been hired for the Abu Dhabi production, however when the site talked to a few of the locals, they said they haven't "had any inkling of a nearby movie set or unusual construction." 

Hmmmm...

The large grey circular object in the set photo looks very much like the foot of an AT-AT, but some also think it resembles the escape pod used by R2-D2 and C-3PO in A NEW HOPE. Of course maybe it's just a giant piece of irrigation equipment used in the desert and has nothing to do with STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, but since J.J. Abrams and Disney are being so secretive with the new movie, I doubt they'll confirm or deny there's a STAR WARS set in Abu Dhabi.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will be in theaters on December 18th, 2015.

I dunno... Part of me wants them to announce the entire cast and what the movie is about. Another part of me wants to go into the movie completely cold, and not know for sure that Mark Hamill is even in it until he appears on screen opening day, removing a brown cloak from his face like Obi-Wan did in the original, prompting the movie audience to go wild. I don't think such secrecy is possible, but it wouldn't surprise me if JJ Abrams makes the attempt.

don't worry. even if Mark Hamill's face is plastered on every promotional item for this movie, we're still gonna go nuts when he removes the cloak from his face.

I have a trusted source working on this film and he has said that JJ and the rest of the original Star Wars stars' (mark, Carrie, and Harrison) digestive tracts have started now that production has officially started, and my friend has access to pictures of the poop. SPOILER ALERT!!! One of them ate local Abu Dhabi food and not the provided catering.
