Yesterday, photos leaked from the set of J.J. Abrams upcoming film Star Wars: Episode VII. The images seemed to confirm what many fans were hoping for – that the Millennium Falcon would appear in the film.
Today, J.J. Abrams took to Twitter to respond to the leaked photos. In the tweet, he included a hand written note that spoke of his frustration towards people who leak photos from the set.

Of course, many believe that this is J.J.’s way of actually confirming that the Millennium Falcon will be in the film, because obviously…
For those who don’t know, the note is placed on the hologram chess board, inside the Millenium Falcon, that appeared in the original Star Wars.
It is possible, of course, that these “leaked” photos are nothing but a ploy on the part of J.J. Abrams and company to create buzz around the film. Star Wars: Episode VII isn’t set to hit theatres until December 18, 2015, so will any buzz generated a year and a half before its release do any good?
One thing’s for sure – it got people talking…
