We don’t know much about Star Wars: Episode VII, which isn’t surprising to anyone. Director J.J. Abrams is well known, some may say notorious, for keeping a tight lid on his films, something that even he has poked fun at in the past. Aside from the fact that it’s happening; that the release date is set for December 18, 2015; and that Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan took over writing the script from Michael Arndt, we don’t really know anything. It will probably start shooting in May in England, and we’ve heard all manner of casting rumors, but even all of that is still up in the air. A new picture on the redesigned Lucasfilm website, however, may have inadvertently given us our first glimpse at some concept art for the first Star Wars movie in a decade.
The website features a photo of a production meeting full of big wigs and key players. Abrams is there (he’s the one with his back to us), Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy, visual effects supervisor John Knoll, production designer Rick Carter, tech VP Kim Libreri, and Jason McGatlin, the senior vice president of physical production. But that’s not the interesting part. If you look in the background you’ll notice what appears to be some concept art hanging on the wall behind them.
