The filmming of the new Star Wars movie is soon to begin and the Abu Dhabi set is shaping up nicely. This will be the location where the crew will film the scenes related to the city port of Mos Eisley which is located on the famous planet of Tatooine. This is where a lot of stuff happened in the previous movies, but also a very important place for various stories from the expanded universe. It will be interesting to see just how Mos Eisley will look compared to the previous movies and just how much of the original source material will be preserved by JJ Abrams and his crew. We also have a few leaked photos from the set itself! So, let's get started with a fresh dose of Star Wars 7 news already, shall we?!

“I live around here, it’s totally my home area and I’m sure if anything as big as that was going on I’d know about it,” said an Emirati farmer.Oh but on the contrary my dear anonymous friend, there is a lot going on! And we do have a few more leaked photos to show you, but first here's a quick reminded of how Mos Eisley looked in the original Star Wars movie. I am pretty sure that the new Episode VII will have no trouble making a visually better scene!
