J.J. Abrams Asks Crew to Stop Leaking Star Wars: Episode VII Photos, Drops Hint

The director drops a hint of his own about Star Wars: Episode VII

After leaked photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII—the first of the next three Star Wars films—surfaced on TMZ Tuesday, director J.J. Abrams tweeted a plea to those on the set to stop leaking.

Abrams tweeted:

The handwritten note read: “I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie. -JJ”

But Abrams could be dropping hints of his own. The photos posted Tuesday appeared to show an under-construction Millennium Falcon, Han Solo’s famous spaceship. And Abrams’ note looks like it’s on a Dejarik board—a holographic chess game played on the Falcon in Star Wars: A New Hope.

Does this mean we’ll get to see the Falcon return in Episode VII? We’ll just have to wait to find out: The film is set for release on Dec. 15, 2015.
