It’s totally obvious that this alleged footage from the “Star Wars Episode VII” set is fake. But that doesn’t make it any less cool and/or worthy of appreciation.
Because somebody — in this case German YouTube user Frank Wunderlich — took the time to make Frankfurt airport look like an imperial starport, complete with star destroyers and AT-AT walkers and the death star in the sky. And even if it isn’t real, it sure is fun.
According to the description, Wunderlich claimed that it “Looks like the Story of Star Wars plays on Earth too in the next Episode. I took these pictures on my Flight back from the States to Germany at the Frankfurt Airport. Seems like the biggest German airport plays a key role as an imperial starport in the new episode — there have just been imperial forces at the scene. Maybe the Rebelboys hide in Berlin… :-D”
We’re sure J.J. Abrams has no plans to bring the imperial forces to earth, but still, you have to admit: wouldn’t it be neat?
