Now that production is finally under way on Star Wars: Episode VII, a number of photos have been leaked from the set, including yesterday's images that indicated the Millennium Falcon will have a presence in this highly-anticipated sequel. Today, director J.J. Abrams responded with a carefully-placed letter of his own, where he "denies" the "ridiculous claims" that the Millennium Falcon will be in the movie. Take a look at the image, then read on for more information.
Of course, most fans will realize that the hand-written letter from J.J. Abrams is placed on the Dejarik board, the hologram chess game that Chewbacca played with R2-D2 in the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope while aboard the Millennium Falcon. The scene included the famous line, "Let the Wookie win." Given the content of this seemingly tongue-in-cheek letter, and its placement, it's safe to say that fans can expect the Millennium Falcon to be featured in Star Wars: Episode VII, one way or another. But who's the Wookie in this situation? J.J. Abrams or the photo hungry Paparazzi?
