Rumor: First Set Picture From Episode VII

By: Dominic Jones

Have we just gotten our first glimpse at the set of Star Wars Episode VII?  The Abu Dhabi newspaper The National thinks so!  The paper posted the photo online, with the speculation that this is part of the set for Episode VII.  According to The National,

"The National photographer Mona Al Marzooqi has captured what are believed to be the first images of Star Wars: Episode VII set deep in the Abu Dhabi desert.

The photos, taken on Tuesday morning in the dunes near Qasr Al Sarab resort, reveal a large encampment of tents with four to five workers moving around what appear to be parts of a filmset.

It is one piece of equipment in particular, however, that is the most suggestive: a giant, round, grey disc, which bears a striking resemblance to parts of an escape pod on which C3P0 and R2D2 crash-landed on Tatooine in the original, 1977, Star Wars: A New Hope film."

Check out the picture and decide for yourself, 

As to whether the rumors are true or not, this does line up with a story from last week that said filming for Episode VII would be taking place in Abu Dhabi.  Also, those sand dunes look like they would make a great location for Tatooine!

As always this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
