J.J. Abrams From the ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ Set: “I Wish People Would Stop Leaking Photos”
This week has seen over 50 images leak from the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' set showing off new creatures, the Tatooine set and confirming the existence of the Millennium Falcom. This is all highly unusual for a J.J. Abrams movie, where he likes to keep things as secretive as possible and, today, Abrams responded to the many leaks on Twitter with a note from the set.
Abrams had this to say via the Bad Robot Twitter account:
For those having trouble with his handwriting:
I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie. - JJ
Hey, maybe he has a sense of humor about this top secret stuff after all! The note is perched on top of a Dejarik table, the hologram-based game played by Chewbacca and R2-D2 in 'Star Wars' ("It's not wise to upset a Wookiee") and located in the Millennium Falcon lounge.
So, while Abrams isn't completely dumping out his Mystery Box, it's nice that he's relaxing a little bit and taking us inside the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' production. With this and the video promoting the Omaze charity contest, we hope that there's more of these official updates from the set as time goes on. (Because, if not, we have a feeling the TMZ leaks will just continue...)
