It seems like we're going to be getting weekly updates from the set of Star Wars Episode 7 from here on out - or, at least, I hope so! Kicking off the week is this leak of the set from what we all believe is Tatooine. While the set has been hinted at before (with a hint of the classic animatronic puppetry making a return to the franchise) we've already been told that the ice planet that some has suspected would be a return to Hoth will be a completely different place.
I, for one, welcome variety, but this definitely looks like Tatooine to me. Specifically, this looks like a Tusken Raider camp: something we originally saw in the prequels, where Anakin went on a murder spree after the death of his captured mother. Here are a few shots for comparison:
While the huts seem a bit different, I can definitely see them housing some of our favorite Bantha-riding Tatooine locals. After all, everything (including TIE fighters and star destroyers, apparently) changes over time. Do you agree, or does this look more like a Tatooine neighborhood to you?
