There has been a major problem with photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII being leaked online. I've been curious to know what director J.J. Abrams thinks of this, and he released a very fun and clever photo response on the Bad Robot Twitter account with a note saying:
“I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie.”
What's so awesome about this photo is where it was taken, and what the note is laying on. For those of you who don't recognize it, that is the holochess board from the Millennium Falcon.
Abrams confirms two obvious things here with this photo… the first is that the photos that leaked out are indeed real. The second is that the Millennium Falcon is really going to be in the movie. Like I said, it's obvious, but it's officially coming from the director of the film who was also kind enough to offer a little tease of the holochess board, which made me happy!
