Location Services & the Star Wars: Episode VII Stormtrooper helmets that leaked recently.

When you take the original photo we released and put it into an iOS device, the location services activate, showing the photographs were in fact taken at Pinewood Studios. Can that be faked? I don’t know. I suppose anything can be faked. Also worth noting is that the artwork that was recently leaked does not have location services enabled and do not yield the same results (which doesn’t mean the pieces are fake, just that I checked so don’t bother). This might help sway the skeptics just a tad, or maybe not at all. I had the idea to put it on my iPad and then look at my photos from various locations and it worked, revealing the photo was in fact taken at the location sources claimed it was.

Initially I was going to keep this on the down-low. But then I figured Disney and Lucasfilm have probably already done the necessary steps to solve the potential places the photo leaked from. Now, the date and location of the leak are a little more obvious. The interesting thing is that appears to be about the time there were visitors to Pinewood and in the aftermath of that week, we saw a few twitter accounts shut down for saying just a little too much. I’m not implying that one of those people on Twitter leaked this, but that there were outsiders afoot at that time, if memory serves correctly.
