'Star Wars' Galactic Empire invades a German airport

This fan-made fake set leak shows what it might look like if the Galactic Empire had a hub at Germany's Frankfurt airport.

In June, "Star Wars Episode VII" director J.J. Abrams pleaded with people to stop leaking photos from the set. And while Abrams can threaten to force-choke cast and crew members working on the film, he (probably) can't stop fans like Frank Wunderlich from creating awesome, completely made-up leaks.

Last week, Wunderlich released a short video in which the Galactic Empire converted Germany's Frankfurt Airport into an Imperial starport. Imperial TIE Fighters and Lambda-class shuttles are shown arriving and departing at the starport on a fairly regular basis while stormtroopers, and AT-AT and AT-ST walkers are seen patrolling the grounds to destroy would-be intruders.

No rebels were spotted infiltrating the starport.
