I guess at this point, JJ Abrams is getting a little more press than what he bargained for this early in the Episode VII game with numerous leaked images already hitting the net in the first few weeks of production. Just yesterday we saw construction had began on what could possibly be the Millenium Falcon (see those images HERE) as well as set (and creature) images from the production in the Abu Dhabi desert. Not to mention the film’s very own script supervisor took pictures of Abrams personal note to the crew and posting them online herself. Oh, people.
Well it seems like Abrams has had enough and wanted to let everyone know it’s not cool (in a playful way at least). A few hours ago through Abrams’ production company Bad Robot’s twitter account, he posted a note for anyone listening.
This seems to say that those images from yesterday were indeed the Millenium Falcon. At least that’s how I’m reading it, wouldn’t you? Some people think that the production itself are leaking the images to at least hault anyone else from inevitably doing so, which is pretty smart. Especially since the leaked images aren’t dealbreakers as far as causing any early judgement. I know if I were on set, it’d be hard to not snap a picture of Mark Hamill’s wig.
Also I can’t help but wonder what type of space dart board they have that note pinned on. Or maybe it’s like a super futuristic garbage can lid with super futuristic garbage inside. We can only dream.
UPDATED: Goes to show you how far my Star Wars knowledge takes me (not far), I’ve been informed that in the image is actually the game board from the Millenium Falcon. Abrams, you sly son of a gun!
