A few days ago the BBC reported on a film set they spotted in Puzzlewood in the Forest Of Dean in the United Kingdom. Although it wasn't clear if this production was associated with Star Wars Episode VII, many clues pointed to that being the case. Now we have an assortment of new info and images that may confirm our speculation.
First of all, the Daily Mail has released several photos of of the set, including shots of presumed actors wearing black robes, one of which is also seen wearing white boots that look very similar to what Stormtroopers wear. Making Star Wars points out that these robes are the same as what was used to conceal costumes on the set of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek films. You can view the rest of the photos here.
Also, it has been previously rumored that "AVCO" is the secret production title for Episode VII. BBC's Steve Knibbs, who visited the set in the previous report, tweeted this:
Big @starwars clue. I've found out the code name for the project is AVCO. Here's what we filmed @puzzlewoodfod pic.twitter.com/H91yPgDG2ZInteresting. That logo's font does seem to be quite Star Wars-esque. And "Rogue unit" is an interesting choice for a film crew name.

Obviously none of this is confirmed and could just be a massive coincidence, but I think it's a safe bet this film site has something to do with Episode VII. The big question now is; what planet is this? The Puzzlewood landscape does look very similar to Endor, but also different enough to be an entirely new planet. What do you think it is? Let us know in the comments below!
As always, nothing is official until it comes from Lucasfilm. Take this report with a grain of salt.
