New leaked pictures from the production set of “Star Wars: Episode 9” suggest that there will be a jungle planet in the upcoming film. The iconic ship Millennium Falcon may also be back, although it is unclear who will be piloting it this time around.

Filming of the upcoming movie is reportedly taking place at Black Park in the UK. Leaked pictures posted on MakingStarWars show an alien ship, but it isn’t clear if this is the Millennium Falcon, although the report is convinced that it is.

There hasn’t been any official announcement that the upcoming movie is being filmed at Black Park, but there are a lot of indications that suggest that the cast and crew of the film are there. It is normal for a movie to be filmed in this area, but the security is unusually high. Besides, they are using the same green fabric sheets to cover the fencing of this area that was previously used for movies like “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

Apart from the fact that the Falcon will return in the upcoming film, it is interesting to note that there will be a forest/jungle planet or moon. This will be in line with the way the new trilogy has been mimicking the original trilogy.

The fans saw the desert planet of Tatooine in the very first “Star Wars” movie. In the new trilogy, Rey (Daisy Ridley) was on the desert planet Jakku. The last battle of the original trilogy was fought on Endor, a heavily forested moon. The upcoming movie may have something similar, with a pivotal battle fought in a planet covered in think forest.

“Star Wars: Episode 9” is being directed by JJ Abrams, who also directed the first movie in the new trilogy “The Force Awakens.” The film will be released on Dec. 20, 2019 in the US.
