SALT LAKE CITY — A mysterious photo believed to be from the new “Star Wars: Episode IX” is actually from another Disney project.

What’s going on: A photo originally posted to Reddit appeared to be a leaked set photo for the upcoming “Star Wars” film. The photo showed jungle ruins, which would greatly expand the “Star Wars” universe.

Comment from discussion r/StarWarsLeaks - Leaked Set Photo.But ComicBook.com discovered the photo comes from the set of “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which was filmed in 2011.

You can see the set built during a time-lapse video released from the set:

Bigger picture: The leaked images come as other rumors about the upcoming film populate the internet.

  • Legendary “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill recently tweeted that he won’t spill any secrets about the upcoming film, even though he’s been known to hint at reveals in the past.
  • "I mention keeping my Star Wars opinions to myself & what happens? It triggers an avalanche of questions about the next one! All can is yes, I'm in it. Other than that, just consider it: EPISODE NEIN COMMENT," Hamill wrote.

Bottom line: Don’t expect too many “Star Wars” spoilers this time around. Staff and crew are keeping tight lips.
