Don’t get too excited just yet. The photo doesn’t show much of anything, aside from the U.K.’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, posing with director J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy, and R2-D2. The pic does give a tantalizing glimpse at an unfinished Millennium Falcon in the background, though.

The photo isn’t the only “Star Wars” goodness out there. Latino Review unleashed quite a few unconfirmed rumors about “Star Wars: Episode VII.” The site revealed a few key things per their sources:
– There will be a female villain, who may be a Sith
– There is no new Republic, even though the movie is set 30 years after “Return of the Jedi”
– John Boyega is not a Jedi nor even a Padawan. Rather, he’s a Luke-type figure who somehow joins the action.
All of these tidbits seem plausible, but take them with a grain of salt (or a whole shaker’s worth).
