Your Saturday Project: Identify The Mystery Object In This Apparent Photo Of The Star Wars: Episode VII Set

The picture you see before you comes from The National, a daily newspaper published in Abu Dhabi. The photographer, Mona Al Marzooqi, reportedly captured it near “a large encampment of tents” deep in the desert, surrounding what appeared to be part of a set.

Now, last week, The Hollywood Reporter stated that they were pretty sure Abu Dhabi was going to be the new home of Tatooine, so this isn’t the first time we’re hearing about this location. According to The National, their sources within the Abu Dhabi film industry say that crew members have already been hired for the shoot. However, local residents don’t seem to know about it, and Disney, of course, isn’t saying anything. It is entirely possible that this picture has nothing to do with Star Wars whatsoever. Is that going to stop fans from speculating on what the object might be? Of course not!
