8 Potential Plot Points For 'Star Wars Episode VII' Revealed
Earlier today Jedi News realized LucasFilm had updated the cover image for their Production page. It caught the attention of fans when it become clear that curly mass of hair in the forefront of the camera might be J.J. Abrams. Meaning this might be a meeting about Episode VII. Valentine's Day seems like an odd time to drop a bunch of potential spoilers for the future of the 'Star Wars' franchise, but what is love if not an obsessive need to over-analyze the smallest details of the object of your affection?

Look at all those images, just hanging out in the background like the teases they are. They must be delicately picked apart like a vulture with a carcass. And who am I too pass up all those delicious looking storyboards even if LucasFilm production designer Rick Carter is blocking the view? To the Photoshop! ENHANCE!
Okay turns out shouting 'ENHANCE!' at Photoshop does not — in fact — make images clearer. 'CSI' lied to us all. However, I was able to piece together what most of these pixelated photos are. Let's take a look!
#1 - Let's start with the obvious. Millennium Falcon!
Okay so the Millennium Falcon is flying over what appears to be a scenic world with some sort of floating city or satellite in the distance. If the rumors are true that 'Episode VII' will follow the story arc of Han and Leia's offspring, it stands to reason the ship would still be in the family.
#2 - And a canyon of some sort?
This could be Tatooine or it could be a new planet. I'd like to think it's the former because those rocks don't seem nearly sun-baked enough to hide womp rats, much less the nomadic tribes of Sand People. But based on evidence further down the line, it's just as likely to be a bird's eye view of Beggar's Canyon.
#3 - Okay, now things are getting a little blurry but this looks like the Geonosis Arena.
What does Geonosis have to do with anything? Who knows! Maybe they're brainstorming what would happen to the race of creatures responsible for the creation of the Death Star in a post-Empire world. Maybe they're just using it as inspiration for another arena. But it's probably some third thing.
#4 - That cape is a dead give away as Count Dooku.
I couldn't find the exact image of Dooku to match up here because the Internet loves to show the Sith Lord with his crooked lightsaber out. But that halo of white hair surrounded by a glorious cape even extreme enhancement can't hide standing next to a Trade Federation guy — nice hat buddy — leaves little doubt as to who is pictured. Maybe the theory about Episode VII having some connection to the Death Star blueprints isn't so far fetched after all.
