What is going on A Long Time Ago in A Galaxy Far Far Away? The next installment in the Star Wars Saga is being filmed and today we have some leaked set images for your enjoyment. Check out the details below and share your thoughts after the JUMP!
ScreenCrush’s WookieLeaks is a weekly roundup of everything ‘Star Wars’! From ‘Episode 7,’ to the upcoming spinoffs and the TV shows, if it pertains to that long ago, far away galaxy, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, the first major images from the ‘Episode 7′ set arrive, Mark Hamill shows off his new look, and two fantastic actresses join the saga.
First Images From the ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ Set
There’s a reason ScreenCrush’s new ‘Star Wars’ news column started this week: the first images from the set of ‘Episode 7′ were released! And by released, we mean leaked by a cast or crew member! And by cast or crew member, we mean someone who is probably majorly fired right now!
The first batch of images show off the new Tatooine set, which looks, as you’d expect, like Tatooine. Although we wonder why director J.J. Abrams and his team thought it was necessary to return to this backwater hellhole of the planet (all Luke wanted to do was escape it!), seeing these sets and that truly awesome practical creature sends a chill down our spine.
Interesting to note is how Abrams seems to be repurposing some of Ralph McQuarrie’s old concept art for Jabba’s palace (shown below). Check out all the new set photos over at TMZ.
