Over 40 Photos from the Set of Star Wars: Episode VII!

Last month, production officially kicked off on Star Wars: Episode VII in the Abu Dhabi desert and director J.J. Abrams even treated us to a sneak peek of the set in a video. The production has since moved to Pinewood Studios in London where it will finish up the rest of the shoot, but TMZ has managed to get their hands on over 40 photos from the Abu Dhabi set which include close-up shots of some extras, props, sets, and new creatures.
