Thought I'd start up a thread so users can post real on set Episode 7 pictures going forward.


Real pictures only, fake pictures will be removed. Please no oversized images either.




From Bad Robots Twitter page:


So at least we know a Tatooine sequence will be shot in Imax :p

In the group photo, I like how Peter Mayhew is the one of the only people actually reading the script. Because it's soooo incredibly important that he gets all of his lines memorized. :grin:

He's not the only actor that can play CGI characters but, let's face it, he is TOP OF THE FOOD CHAIN when it comes to playing CGI characters (nobody does it better).

Would you prefer Ahmed Best? Huh...? Hmmm...? Aye...?

Yeah... Thought not. :)

And yes, that's him sitting next to Mark Hamill.

i notice that R2 is absolutely spotless- like a new car... Could that mean anything?? He did get pretty dirty and banged up in the OT..??

They can age him if needed prior to his scenes being films. Storywise his parts may've been fixed in 30 years by Luke, he might be more of an important royal droid for Luke rather then a 2nd hand piece of junk so his been all cleaned up. Time will tell.

Those wings are either not going to split at all or are going to split down the middle front-to-back instead of top-to-bottom.

Oh wow, good catch there. That's a very interesting way for the wings to open. When split, they will have a slightly staggered look.

Just for the record, I didn't catch it - some dude on Slashfilm figured it out.

But I think it should look pretty rad.

It looks like this X-Wings wings / struts will be narrower in width, than that of an OT X-Wing (when the S-Foils are open) - and the staggered configuration makes for an interesting direction (in terms of it's overall look).

Very cool!!!! :D

Looks like comic relief, to me. :rolleyes: There's a difference in trying to be funny, and actually being funny, and there was nothing funny about that Mouse Droid. I hope JJ lets it happen in the movie and not force it, excuse the pun.

The helmet seems way too smooth for my liking.


Here's a new pic with a new robotic hand...maybe Luke's new hand?

Mintinbox.net has posted what it claims to be the first pix inside Star Wars: Episode 7's Millennium Falcon, plus what looks like a corridor possibly from inside an Imperial Star Destroyer, but could be a number of things. Most appear to be legit especially with the appearance of green screen which digital movies now more commonly use. The only doubt among people seems to be picture 2, the top left image in my example, which is the only one with no green screen in sight.

What would be the reasoning behind posting 3 genuine episode 7 pics and attaching a "fake/old" pic with it? If we are going to assume any of them (especially the majority of them) are authentic...wouldn't it stand to reason they are all authentic....? Or all fake?


"Hehehe...I'm going to send 3 real photos from
arguably the hottest film in production...then I'm going to trick them all by attaching ONE old photo! Hehehe...that'll teach'em!"

Read my post properly before making dumb comments dude! I never said whoever posted this made a fake or incorrect claim, I said some people have expressed doubt over one of the images because its so different, both in clarity and quality from the others. Personally I think they're all real anyway, but that doesn't mean someone wouldn't try pulling a fast one, it happens all the time even on (GASP!!) big budget productions, and the reasoning is obvious so don't even go there.

Huh?!? ....I didn't say anything about YOU saying it was fake...I was saying why would "people" think that. What would be the reasoning if there's 3 REAL photos why bother adding ONE fake to them?


"Don't go there"?! What the hell are you talking about?!

They probably didn't have the green screen up at the time the picture was taken no biggie :)

Yes, that's what I thought too. Very interesting pics though, especially inside the Falcon which still looks very faithful to the original while having a few nice touches of its own. Like newly upholstered front seats and a few extra gear sticks at the controls, which I'm sure you noticed, but very nice indeed. :)
