Unquestionably, two of the largest films currently in production as of now are Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Star Wars: Episode VII. And in an age where almost every Tom, Dick and Harry has access to a smartphone — and, subsequently, a camera — it’s become increasingly difficult for studios to keep their projects under wraps.
So, after the Batmobile stole the limelight this morning in leaked photos from Dawn of Justice’s Detroit set, new birds-eye Episode VII photographs have emerged that reveal two very familiar galactic ships.

These images come courtesy of FlyMAC, a London-based flight school that happened across the exterior storage space at Pinewood Studios. As you can see, the eagle-eyed pilot was able to pick out the iconic Millennium Falcon and an X-Wing — though the latter appears to be shrouded in some form of protective tarp.
It was only recently that the cameras began rolling once again on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, after Harrison Ford suffered an ankle injury during filming. However, Ford’s injury didn’t seem to inconvenience the production too much — which hints at the extent of Han Solo’s role in the film — and the project is still on course for its release on December 18th, 2015.
We’ll just have to hope against hope that the Internet hasn’t clawed its way through and exposed all of the details by then.
