J.J. Abrams Addresses 'Star Wars' Leaks in Conveniently Placed Letter

Star Wars

Since we're not the kind of outlet that posts unofficial set photos, we've merely called your attention to the fact that there are spy photos hitting the web from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. The first round just showed off some of the desert set along with extras and a cool practical snouted pig creature. But the second set was quite the giveaway as it confirmed the presence of the Millennium Falcon (still running 30 years later) and even hints of an X-Wing being built. Some people thought these might be fake leaks sanctioned by Disney, but a handwritten letter from director J.J. Abrams seems to indicate otherwise. However, it seems to be conveniently placed in a location that Star Wars fans will probably enjoy seeing. Look below!

Here's the letter from J.J. Abrams from the Bad Robot Twitter account:

As you can see, he pleads with whoever is leaking photos from the set to stop. And then he also "tries" to debunk the fact that the Han Solo's trusty ship will be making a return. But for big Star Wars fans, you'll probably notice that this letter is sitting on top of a Dejarik board, the hologram, chess-like game that Chewbacca was playing with R2-D2 on the ship in the original 1977 film ("Let the Wookiee win."). And considering the content of the message, we're pretty sure that's the same game board from the Millennium Falcon, which is Abrams' tongue-in-cheek way of confirming what we now know to be true. Awesome?

Isn't that the "space chess" that Chewie and R2 played on?
