Star Wars Episode VII Rumors: JJ Abrams Denies that Millennium Falcon is in Episode 7

Star Wars Episode VII will not include the Millennium Falcon, despite leaks that appear to indicate that it will.

That’s according to director J.J. Abrams, who posted a handwritten note on Twitter on June 4.

“I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII,” he said.

“And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie.”

However, it’s worth noting that the note is on top of a battered hologame table, similar to the one that was in the falcon in the original trilogy.

A number of leaks have started coming out of the Episode VII set, including scores of pictures.

The latest addition to the Star Wars franchise is currently filming and is slated to hit theaters in December 2015.

Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Harrison Ford will all be back as their star characters, as well as Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Kenny Baker (R2-D2), and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO).

Daisy Ridley, Max von Sydow, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Gwedoline Christie are also involved.

Driver and von Sydow are rumored to be the villains though none of the specific roles are known yet.
