Episode VII: New Report Suggests One Classic Planet Is Out, Another Is In

Possible, albeit mild, location-related spoilers follow.

MakingStarWars.net has been following up with their sources at Pinewood Studios, and they've got some clarifications on other set-related rumors that have been floating around. Here are the basics from the report:
  • There is a "Forest Fortress" set. It looks ruined and features a large sandstone-colored door. The set resembles Yavin IV more than Endor.
  • There are no snow-planet sets at Pinewood. False reports about Hoth appearing in the movie may have come from the Everest snowscape set at Pinewood.
  • The "Imperial stage," which is "huge," features a full-size TIE fighter prop and greenscreens on two sides.
  • There is also a Star Destroyer bridge set, recognizable based on its "distincive triangular windows.
