J.J. Abrams has responded, via the Bad Robot twitter account, to the leaked photos on TMZ of the Millennium Falcon being built, supposedly from the Star Wars: Episode VII set.
Here is the response:
The handwritten response says:
I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie. – JJ
The awesome part about this response? It appears that the note is resting on a Dejarik table. Star Wars fans will recognize this from the original Star Wars as the game that C-3PO and Chewbacca play as they fly to Alderaan. Hat tip to J.J. for showing some good humor about what has to be quite the annoyance to him and the team for Star Wars: Episode VII.
This will clearly become more and more of an issue as one could speculate that photos will continue to leak. The obvious answer to me is to have J.J. Abrams pre-empt them with more behind the scenes videos and photos. It seems to have worked fairly well for Peter Jackson and his Middle Earth movies. What do you think should happen?
Make it a GREAT day!
