Les Miserables filming hit the Naval College in London recently, which doubled as Paris in 1832. New images from the shoot have emerged online, giving us our first look at one of the most iconic set pieces of the story!

An official image of the filming was released through the film’s official Twitter feed, giving us our first glimpse at The Elephant of Bastille, which Gavroche uses as shelter. The scaled replica is impressively large, but it wasn’t the last of the day’s surprises. Several leaked pictures of the film depict what appears to be the start of the June Rebellion with the Friends of The ABC taking a stand, most probably during the number “One Day More”.

Check out the thrilling new images below!

    So excited, but the one thing that concerns me is that they might rush production to make their December 14th premiere.

    I’m scared for their sakes that they’re not going to make this cinematic enough. I can’t imagine the camera angles being very creative when I think of this film. But, it is directed by Tom Hooper, and hopefully he’ll make a damn good film.

    Don’t want to be a nitpick here, but the French Revolution does not happen during Les Mis. It’s all about the June Rebellion in 1832.

    I’m very excited for this! My school put on this musical and the cast and crew did a freaking amazing job (except for 2 people), so I’m excited to see what a professional cast can do!

    I couldn’t be more overjoyed to see les mis getting a little attention outside of its fandom! i’m also looking forward to seeing the west end actors mixed in with the hollywood ones :)   however, i’m pretty sure that lamarque’s funeral scene is going to be used for Do You Hear The People Sing…
