    Nice. Confirmation and video of JJ in Abu Dhabi. And that thing reminded me of a creature from the Dark Crystal. Haha

    You know now we will be analysing every second of the people moving around in the background JUST incase any of the actors are there. Did you spot the guy with the black robes?

    What strikes me, (apart from the market place set and the use of a practical effect for the alien ;)), is how much like Spielberg Abrams is in his speech and mannerisms.

    Can't deny (though I'm a slight prequel defender and not a CGI hater per se) that seeing that puppet/animatronic on a new Star Wars set is a pure joy.

    I cannot believe that they are using puppets in this thing! I'm seriously overjoyed. I am sure now that without a doubt JJ is going to kill this thing.

    Should I feel bad that I watched that video like 3 times and I don't have a clue what he was talking about?

    I'm sure people will find stuff I would have never noticed. Hopefully there are some goodies in there. Also that speeder in the background looks like a car....

    My priorities are completely out of whack... but I love that alien more than anything else going on in that video... including Tatooine, sets, a chance to be in the film and good causes.
