    Hard to believe how much was just left laying out there. My budget would miss a $20 bill. I can't imagine what that stuff costs lol.

    Yeah, and that also just seems odd that they would leave anything out there to be picked up and analyzed by someone.

    As we speak there are probably nerds in that forest foraging for clues :p

    It seems odd that that stuff would be left behind, both for privacy/confidentiality reasons and out of respect for the site. Maybe people will be going back to finish the clean up?

    That's what I thought... I really can't see them being done there quite yet.

    Yes but the equipment appeared to be left in the elements and unguarded.

    At any rate, it really is amazing scenery there.

    So much for "take only pictures, leave only footprints." This appears to be something this production does. Apparently they left enough in the UAE to establish some kind of exhibit, but I assume those were all set pieces.

    If they are legitimately leaving their "garbage" behind, that's pretty disappointing.

    That seems to be way too much equipment to have simply been left behind. More likely, they were still in the act of cleaning up as these shots were being taken...

    That's what I thought, they must have been planning on coming back very soon. Hopefully.

    Yeah and there were people in a few of those shots so most likely those people were cleaning the area up when the photographer snapped those pics. Anyway, really lovely scenery. Can't wait to see it on screen.

    "Sorry Bob, we 'lost' some very special equipment on a location shoot, guess that means we have to delay until May 2017!"
    "%&$# %^$%@#%$, JJ! GET BACK TO WORK!"
    "Dammit."

    It's what Abrams said to Kennedy, when he initially declined the offer...

    "It's a very cool opportunity, but I just don't think it's possible now"

    "A Very Cool Opportunity"

    Ok here we go. This could possibly be significant. Here is some info from the winnebagos at the Puzzlewood shoot. I've taken some precautions with how its presented here to help hide my source.

    This has taken a few days cos I have been digging around for a second source that can stand this up. No luck.

    This is what could be the Daisy character name. And another kind of creature involved. A BIG BIG BIG part of the problem is that there is a massive secrecy campaign on set. A BIG part of that is disinformation with false names false info on documents. Could this be false. Hell, yes! But it is the information that my source managed to see at Puzzlewood. He/she was slightly surprised at being able to get close to this info. I haven't been able confirm whether this is the genuine thing or just part of JJ's disinformation strategy.

    As our friend at the CIA would say this is the raw intel without any definite analysis one way or another.

    Don't flame me! Cos I know you would want to know this stuff even I can't stand it up right now. There are other people out there and on other sites who might be able to way in with what they know which might help.

    I've looked into what both could signify in the Star Wars universe. The creature name does chime with a known thing. But it does make me suspicious about whether it's a false trail, or one of the things in VII.

    Thats all from me. Here it is brothers and sisters.

    Thanks for the info as always, Simon!!. Last time you said something about the leads and their roles. Do you know anything about it?

    Kira is a nice name. Kinda reminds me of Keira Knightly but whatever. As for rocker....well if this scene isn't about some crazy rock-and-roll rave scene then I'm guessing it's soe form of rock monster.

    I like the name Kira, if that turns out to be true. Though, to be fair, it is very Star Trek!

    I like Kira too. That said, DS is right to warm of disinformation. But if Kira stands, that's cool.

    DarthSimon, just a quick question if you're still around. Your source is confident this name belongs to Daisy's character, and not one of the other girls? I realise it could be false info, but just curious.
