Normally set photos don’t tell us much besides giving us a behind the scenes look at a production of a film. These photos are a dime a dozen, and generally come from pedestrians or production crew who were given the social media green light. But when it comes to set photos for Star Wars: Episode VII, it’s something that should be turning heads.
We already know that J.J. Abrams will be using practical effects for the highly anticipated film, meaning there won’t be as much CGI, and iconic ships like the Millennium Falcon and X-Wing fighters will be built from the ground up. But with these sets closely guarded from prying eyes, it will be hard for set photos to be leaked. Unless you are taking these photos from the sky above. A flight school managed to discover where these two ships are being built, and took a photo of them. Hit the jump to check it out.
Airbourne Aviation took the photo, which was then tweeted out by Sky News:
Now the X-Wing we saw previously looked fully built and ready for production. But this one seems to be covered in blue, almost as if it was designed for CGI purposes. It also could be just the fact that the X-Wing will actually look like that. The half-built Millennium Falcon could be used for scaling purposes, since we know that another one already exists.
Starring John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyongâ€™o, and Gwendoline Christie, with Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Peter Mayhew, Star Wars: Episode VII opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.
