J.J. Abrams has pretty much confirmed that the Millennium Falcon will be in Star Wars: Episode VII. Fed up with leaked photos from the set of the upcoming film, director J.J. Abrams responded with a brilliant message via the Bad Robot Twitter page.
Abrams posted an image of the holochess board from Han Solo's Millennium Falcon along with a cheeky message that reads: "I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII and making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie."

Take note video game publishers, this is how you responde to a leak. Rather than crying about, Abrams basically confirmed what was already speculated, and while I'm sure he might be disappointed it leaked, he realizes that keeping fans happy is more important then keeping them left in the dark. On the bright side, TMZ's leaked photos provided some optimistic news regarding the new film — and that is Abrams appears to be taking a more traditional approach with Episode VII and using real-life sets and character as opposed to CGI.
