Anyone who's been following Star Wars news over the past two days knows that over 60 pictures from the set of Episode VII have been leaked by TMZ. Director JJ Abrams, who's been known for his love of secrecy, responded in the best possible way. Abrams production company Bad Robot tweeted a picture of a note from JJ on the set, which read,
"I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII and making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie. -JJ"
The best part, the picture of the note, showed it on the Dejarik table from the Millennium Falcon! This, to me, is confirmation that the Millennium Falcon will be making its triumphant return to the silver screen on December 18, 2015.
I must give kudos to JJ for a well played response to the leaks. It also says to me that anyone who was worried about spoilers in the leaked photos, need not worry about having the film ruined for them by looking at the pictures. Even JJ Abrams isn't worried about you seeing those pictures! Plus it's great to get the confirmation of the Falcon being in Episode VII, even though it was expected.
