Read J.J. Abrams' Tongue-in-Cheek Response to Leaked Star Wars Set Photos
June 4, 2014
Twice this week a whole slew of photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII have made their way online (check those out by clicking here and here), and this morning J.J. Abrams' production company Bad Robot posted their own image from the set featuring a note from the director with a rather cheeky response to the whole ordeal. Keen-eyed readers might also notice that J.J. Abrams' "denial" of the Millennium Falcon appearing in "Episode VII" is actually posted on the Holochess board from the famous ship, which Chewbacca and R2-D2 play against each other in the original Star Wars. Check out the director's note below.
Set to star John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie and Max von Sydow in addition to original cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker, Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by Abrams from a script he co-wrote with Lawrence Kasdan. It will open in wide release on December 18, 2015.
