Today's big news -- for Star Wars nerds, anyway -- involves a leaked photo supposedly from the British set of "Star Wars: Episode VII," showing a half-built Millennium Falcon.

We already know Han Solo will be in the movie. So we're surprised his spaceship is too?

Nevertheless, TMZ reports that sources say the photo comes from the secret location where other props, sets and creatures are being constructed by little elf people who only come out at night and aren't visible to humans.

Well -- that might be an exaggeration.

Another photo allegedly from the "Star Wars" set in Abu Dhabi shows a giant creature that sources told TMZ requires five people to operate from the inside. Which is actually kind of a big deal, as it backs up director J.J. Abrams' claim he'll use more models instead of all the computer-generated silliness used by George Lucas during episodes I-III.
