J.J. Abrams Responds To The Recent STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Set Pic Leaks

By way of a response to the recent batch of leaked Star Wars set images that have found their way online, the director has posted a pic of his own to the Bad Robot Twitter account. As you'll see from the snap, he has a sense of humor about the whole thing at least..

We recently had some pretty revealing images leak from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, including a large pig-creature, various extras and pics of a currently under-construction Millennium Falcon. This has prompted the film's director to post a little pic of his own.

Embedded image permalink

In case you're having trouble with Abrams' handwriting, the pic says:

"I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie. – JJ"

Now if you're not a fan, or aren't too familiar with the interiors of the various space crafts in the Star Wars universe, you may not have noticed that the note has been placed in top of Dejarik table -- a sort of holographic chess game which is played by Chewbacca and R2-D2 in "A New Hope", and which is located in the Millennium Falcon. I guess it's nice to know he's not taking these leaks too seriously anyway.

Looks like there is a lot of detail going into all the sets, props, practical effects etc.. JJ must have really assembled a team of great artists for this.

I think this will be the Star Wars everyone has been waiting for.

I just hope he can cut back on the lens flares:)

JJ, you cheeky bastard! This may be one of the best things to ever happen to the Star Wars franchise. Too stoked!

I've got a GREAT feeling about this!

Bloodraven - 6/4/2014, 9:01 AM
Very clever.
ndwwrestler2 - 6/4/2014, 9:02 AM
@Pasto I didn't get it either, until I recognized the chess board. That was very clever.

F*ck you J.J. Abrams. You ruined Star Trek by making it an entertaining franchise that mainstream audiences could enjoy, thus ensuring its future.

I liked Star Trek back when people laughed at it. >:(

He's got that nerd sense of humor I dig it.
Tuuralihn - 6/4/2014, 9:07 AM
I hope we get to hear that they found out who leaked those pictures and got personally fired by JJ.

Yes and Khan is not in Into Darkness. His name is John Mitchell
BlindJustice - 6/4/2014, 10:51 AM
That was hilarious. I'm sure JJ knows there's no way to keep pics from leaking nowadays.

I swear I see the letters JJ and still think of this guy first...
