There are intruders on the set for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode II set. Production footage showing Ewan McGregor battling with a lightsabre had been featured on an unofficial Internet site, TheForce.net. Hours later, the site had a message telling the fans that the footage was no longer available for viewing. A spokeswoman for Lucasfilm told BBC News Online that the footage on the site had been illegally copied from footage the company had put together for the MovieLine awards. A spokesperson for TheForce.net did not have any comments.
