There they found what is undeniably a Millennium Falcon-shaped construction, in which we imagine Mark Hamill is currently stood in a robe next to John Boyega, blowing on a cappuccino and discussing the traffic situation in LA ("Dreadful just dreadful").

The man playing Chewbacca is there, sat in his Chewbacca suit sans head, alone, munching thoughtfully on a catering prawn sandwich.

Daisy Ridley and Gwendoline Christie are bonding in their trailer by reading Reddit fan fiction out loud, while Andy Serkis lurks outside pretending to be on his mobile.

Adam Driver and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are trying to out-woke each other in a loud debate about global warming, while Benicio Del Toro sits alone on a stool working on his Candy Crush Saga high score ("DO NOT approach Benicio between takes," his agent have warned the extras).

Anyway yeah: this is what it looks like. Fans are theorising that the crew have attempted to disguise the Falcon with containers and stuff, but is that going to stop The Internet from having Star Wars Theories?! Is it hell.
