More concept photos have been revealed regarding the movie now that "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is in post-production. While the concept art for BB-8 remains unconfirmed, it gives fans a look at the contents of the droid's panel, which supposedly holds Luke Skywalker's lightsaber.

According to Jason Ward over at Making Star Wars, BB-8 holds numerous items in its circular panel. However, outside of the droid's orange circle is believed to be a secret panel that opens up. Per Ward it seems to be the kind of hiding place someone would have to know where to look to access it.

In the first photo frame, BB-8's white panel outside the orange circle reveals a small grey keypad type interface, revealing two buttons on the bottom. "A red dial, and two white switches which reside below a green LED screen about as big as a classic basic calculator's screen" appear to be the contents, Ward said. However, these buttons allegedly don't do anything. It's believed to be a faux panel and instead, in another photo frame, lifting it shows a secret compartment for storing items.

This secret compartment reportedly hides the Jedi Master's lightsaber. This "final panel" as seen in the concept photo for Star Wars: The Force Awakens" shows Luke Skywalker's weapon popping out from it. "The laser sword doesn't come out all the way out, just enough for a hand to retrieve and pull it out," Ward said. Per Star Wars Underworld, this lightsaber is the same weapon Anakin Skywalker also used.

While this spoiler remains unconfirmed, it's interesting to note that it's different from the other rumours concerning the whereabouts of Luke's weapon in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." According to a previous report from Badass Digest, the Jedi Master's lightsaber fell from the sky and landed over at Tatooine. The weapon allegedly even came with a severed hand holding it. Daisy Ridley's character, now confirmed named as Rey, supposedly sees the Jedi relic on the dessert. It's believed Rey's discovery of the weapon leads him and John Boyega's character on a journey to find its missing owner. According to the report, the pair meets Han Solo and Chewbacca along their journey piloting the Millennium Falcon. Together they go on a quest to find the missing Jedi Master, who per Badass Digest, has been missing for 30 years.
