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