Star Wars 7 Spy Video! – That’s Awesome!

Youtube user Frank Wunderlich recently posted this awesome video showing the behind the scenes of Star Wars Episode 7:

Leaked Star Wars Episode VII Filmset Footage!

Here’s the original description of the video:

Looks like the Story of Star Wars plays on Earth too in the next Episode. I took these pictures on my Flight back from the States to Germany at the Frankfurt Airport. Seems like the biggest German airport plays a key role as an imperial starport in the new episode — there have just been imperial forces at the scene.
Maybe the Rebel boys hide in Berlin… :-D
