Director JJ Abrams has posted an official image from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. A mild spoiler lurks within...

NB: there's a mild Star Wars: Episode VII spoiler in JJ Abrams' image.

Over the past couple of days, a surprising number of candid snaps have sneaked out of the production of Star Wars: Episode VII. Many of them have been quite spoiler-y, hence our reluctance to share them on these pages, but it's fair to say that if you're desperate to find out what the various crewmembers on Episode VII have been up to behind the scenes, it's easy enough to find out with a quick web search.

Director JJ Abrams has responded to the leaked photos with an image of his own, which was posted via his Bad Robot Twitter feed. Really, it's little more than a note, expressing his frustration at the breaches in secrecy on his forthcoming movie. But it ends on a humorous note: the claims that the Millennium Falcon's in Episode VII is, he writes, "ridiculous". The note is, of course, sitting on the holochess board which famously belongs inside the Millennium Falcon.

All we can say is, well played Mr Abrams. That, and "Let the wookie win." 

Star Wars: Episode VII is out in December 2015.

Sad thing we have to visit tmz to see leaked pics from star wars. I dont want to live in this planet anymore

YAYY! Everyones favourite Hunk of Junk that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs!

Made me laugh a little.
Also, what's the word after "ridiculous"?


So good to see that table again

Someone on the inside is in serious breach of his or her non-disclosure agreement. I hope the catch the bastard. Maybe they should just ban phones and cameras bar those that are absolutely essential.

I have a sneaking suspicion that this “personalised” note was written by an intern, and the “impromptu” picture taken after a few hours of direction... Also aliens, aliens
exist and they live in your eye-ball.

Banning cameras on a film set may prove to be problematic

I did say bar those that are essential. These pictures are clearly taken on a smartphone. The only way to stop that is to ban all personal devices with a camera option from the set altogether.

who cares

I care princess!!

Let the Wookie win!

I had never noticed the symbols on the buttons before. I wonder if we'll get a glimpse of some holo-entertainment?

I do.

That leaked picture may not look like much, but its got it where it counts, kid. JJ's made a lot of special modifications himself

I thought the claims actually said c u next tuesday

Er, reality check! This is 2014, not 1983...you will never prevent them from doing it, nor will they catch them and ban the cameras either. Phones are everywhere and there is no stopping it. No one cares anyways.

Only retards care... ie the people who've already started queuing to see it, despite the fact that it's not even made yet.....!!!

Odd looking dart board


Why's Jar Jar leaving notes in the Falcon...?

You are either American or under the age of 12. No one else uses the word "retards" anymore.

Alan does...well re tard

The funny thing is, some people on Twitter hate Abrams so much that they're even critiquing his hand-writing now, saying it looks like font and reading something into that about his personality.

Even when he's trying to do something light-hearted and reacting to leaks rather than ignoring them, the poor guy can't do anything right as far as some people are concerned.

Why always let the wookiee win? Just keep your trusty blaster at your side and shoot first.

JJ wins the internet for today.

Youre retarded for making such a claim!

I'm so excited for this. Every day, it just gets more exciting. Also, Dejarik!

No it's "clams". JJ Abrams hates molluks.

It's odd that no one has figured out that this (and other pics) have been staged on purpose...


Just go to Disneyworld and see it in the Chinese Theatre... :)

I'm glad you asked, I was having the some trouble but was embarrassed to ask!

Bad Robot are clearly much better at viral marketing than films.

yeah, I didn't think I was the only one.

4 8 15 16 23 42

I hear he's releasing the check stubs from his lunches next.

Two exclamation marks? You can't be that fed up.

talk about a bad loser though you beat him and he pulls your arm off
