Leaked Photos from Star Wars 7 Set at Greenham Common; New X-Wing and Millennium Falcon Close-up!

Alright folks, we've had a lot of shaky Star Wars 7 news this September, but its time to show a bit of concrete evidence and not just a bunch of hear-say. That being said you can expect to see quite a few photos in this post - all of them from the Star Wars 7 set in Greenham Common. A majority of the photos focus on showing off the ships - namely the new X-Wing and good ol' Millennium Falcon. According to the report the leaked photos come from an aviation club who were working with air drones in the nearby area of the Star Wars: Episode VII set.  Alright now, let's have a look at these photos, shall we?

Alright, let's have a look at the set and its surrounding area first - just check out the photo bellow for a  general feel of the area. For those who don't know, Greenham Common was used by the British Royal Air Force (RAF) as an airfield/air base until it was closed in 1993 following the end of the Cold War. As a former air base, it fits the general idea of being a starship hanger perfectly.

Now, this photo was obviously taken before the Star Wars 7 crew came to Greenham Commons and made their new movie set there. Here's a leaked photo of how this area looks today - crowded with movie experts, engineers as well as a lot of interesting props.

The New X-Wing and Millennium Falcon will Debut in Star Wars 7

So, let's take the time to have a look at the leaked photos - and what better way to start than by looking at the Millennium Falcon? Now, the ship appears to still be under construction for the time being, but it is coming along nicely.

A nice piece of trivia here is that everything so far looks as expected, apart from the antenna which is now rectangular. We're expecting the new Falcon to have quite a few more changed in comparison to the original - after all, the story will be set roughly 30 years from when we last saw it.

Moving on with today's Star Wars 7 news report - we also have our first look at the new X-Wing which has received a stylish new color pallet and a few changes to the overall design. Again, this may not necessarily be the final model:

And here's an interesting look at an unidentified Star Wars space fighter:

What's especially interesting is that some people have noticed a similarity between some of the props in these photos and those seen on the leaked photos from the Abu Dhabi set. This makes a lot of sense - reusing props is a tactic that as old as the movie industry itself. However, it will be interesting to see if we will be able to spot these similarities on our own once the movie comes out in 2015.

So, how do you like the current state of things? Do the new ships look good and do they fit well with the original trilogy? Personally, I like what I am seeing and I am already excited and hoping to see a new, massive space battle featuring some new (and old) starships and fighter jets. Anyway, be sure to share this article with your friends and post it to your social media accounts. We'll be back on Wednesday with a fresh new scoop of Star Wars 7 news and leaks so be sure to check it out! :)
