JJ Abrams just posted this video from Abu Dhabi, where the cast and crew of Star Wars: Episode VII have set up shop. Filming recently commenced there, and the speculation is that they are using the desert as a stand-in for Tatooine.
While this video didn’t reveal all that much, the look and feel of the set already seems better than the CGI barfs that were Episodes I-III. Good.
But if the animatronic alien didn’t do it for you, Abrams has another enticement. You can win a chance to come to the main set in London, meet the stars of Star Wars and get your own part in the movie.
Yes, your own part.
