The world is waiting for any word we can get on the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII from Disney and J.J. Abrams but the studio and the filmmaker have been understandably and expectedly closed off. But in this day and age of the internet and social media, we’re bound to see set photos from Star Wars unlike we ever have before and that was the case on Tuesday when the first photos fro the film’s Abu Dhabi set were leaked.
The National released a trio of set photos that seem really exciting but are the most boring Star Wars set photos you could have ever imagined.
As Latino-Review pointed out, that does look an awful lot like the foot of the AT-AT walkers we saw made famous in The Empire Strikes Back during the epic Hoth battle.
But it could also be a sun dial or something unrelated to filming. These aren’t the types of set photos we want but even though they show us absolutely nothing about the film, it’s still cool to just be saying ‘Star Wars set photos’ and not be lying.
There will undoubtedly be more of these to surface as filming picks up next month, but here’s to hoping the next batch of set photos actually shows us something other than an items we pass every day when moving past construction areas.
