    If this is legit, then nice find. I'm not a pro at distinguishing from photoshop or real but it does look actual.

    I went back to copy the pic in case they took it down and IT'S NOT THERE. Must have been legit.

    I compared the pics and it looks to be Vader turned around.

    Hmm. I'm skeptical. That comparison pic you posted is extremely similar, when you look at the background characters.

    EDIT - Ah, you changed your post. Yeah, we agree then. Looks fake.

    Yes it does. That's why I think it's not real. What sticks out at me is the guys on the left.. The top pic they're out of the cubby hole and at the bottom they are kind of "in" it.

    Good work. After comparing the two photos I tend to agree that it is a fake.

    It looks like as cene from the OT with another planet shopped on top and a different lighting digitally.

    I would go with fake too. If you look at the bottom pic from ESB and look at the two guys on the right in the hole. The two facing the wall. They look exactly the same in the top but reversed on the left.

    @JeffG. has the right idea.

    Also, it would make absolutely no sense for the Executor to be featured in the time frame of Rogue One. If Darth Vader had it at that point, why wouldn't he just use to to chase the Tantive IV over Tatooine? (Also, to my understanding, the comics establish that Darth Vader got the ship between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.)

    Looks to me about three or four different layers of different photos all combined... the depth is also all wrong.

    Fake!

    If it was fake, then why was it taken down? Doesn't that usually happen only when Disney interferes?

    SWU took it down, along with the entire story, when they realized that they had been duped. If it had been an accurate leak, then they would have simply removed the image from the article and leave a comment about it being taken down by Disney's request (something that happened when we shared the leaked image of Luke's The Force Awakens costume).
