J.J. Abrams has addressed all of the leaked Star Wars Episode VII leaked images with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek.
Abrams posted a picture from the set on the Bad Robot Twitter account addressing the leaked images that have appeared over the past few days (which Disney is now requesting sites remove). The handwritten note reads:
I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie.
So, why is this funny? Well, die-hard Star Wars fans will recognize the item the card is laying on immediately as the holo chess table from the lounge area of the Millennium Falcon. I think it is safe to assume now that the Falcon is indeed in the film.
Well played, Abrams. Well played.
