OK, you can't really say it's "new," but it's still great to see the Falcon making a return for Star Wars: Episode VII.

The photo, which was leaked by BBC News, was taken by Matthew Myatt. He used an aerial drone to snap some sneaky photos of the set from the air. Here's what he captured for the Millennium Falcon:

As you can also see, there is an X-Wing on the set as well. And it looks like Lucasfilm is either adding some color to their spacecraft, or the models are just covered in some kind of protective wrapping.

Myatt claims he didn't even realize he had taken photos of the Star Wars set until he got a good look at them. He allegedly meant to just take pictures of experimental aircraft in Greenham Common, Berkshire.

His mistake/surprise is apparently our fortune.

[Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) opens in theaters December 18, 2015. Are you looking forward to it? Hit me up in the comments below!
