Abu Dhabi newspaper The National has snapped a photo of what’s reported to be crew from the “Star Wars: Episode VII” production gearing up for filming in the desert.
What’s got people excited though is the big round prop glimpsed in the photo, which is speculated to be the foot of an Imperial AT-AT vehicle seen in the two “Star Wars” sequels.
Others have speculated that it resembles the escape pod used to crash land on Tatooine in the original “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope”.
Either way there is no official confirmation at this point that the production has even arrived in Abu Dhabi as Disney is on lock down regarding this film. The photos were snapped in the dunes near Qasr Al Sarab resort, deep in the Abu Dhabi desert.
