If you're looking for some behind-the-scenes photos from Episode VII, look no further than unofficial Star Wars fan site TMZ. They've got 45 photos from the film's Abu Dhabi set, and, like with J.J. Abrams' on-set video, there's some refreshing evidence that the series has returned to using practical effects over the prequel trilogy's reliance on CGI and green screens. The one exception to that new creed: Harrison Ford. He will of course be rendered with computers, the actor having died in 1999 during the shooting of Random Hearts.
