According to TMZ on Wednesday, a picture was posted by J.J. Abrams wishing people would stop making ridiculous claims about the Millennium Falcon being in "Star Wars 7." The irony of it all, he's posted a picture of a handwritten note, with his signature of course, on what looks to be the game board that was on board the Millennium Falcon when R2-D2 and Chewbacca were opposing each other in the friendly battle of wits. That being said, it was highly advised by C-3PO that it's a good idea to let the Wookie win as they've been known to pull limbs from sockets if they wind up being sore sports.
Of course, Abrams has been referring to the already leaked photos by TMZ of various make believe creatures of certain types and of course the construction of Han Solo's ship. One would think the public service announcement brought to fans by J.J. Abrams promoting UNICEF would be enough. It showed a creature that looked rather synonymous to the format of the original "Star Wars" trilogy and likely gave fans an idea of an old school feel. The promotion was to give fans an opportunity to donate funds to the cause for a chance to be on the set in Abrams' "Star Wars" movie.
Even Mark Hamill has promoted a recent photo of himself wielding in a menacing fashion a light saber with Disney's Mickey Mouse. The purpose of this photo op was to promote Star Wars Weekends at the Disney theme parks. For those who don't already know, some of the casts of the original "Star Wars" movie would involve Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and of course, Hamill himself. Fisher has lost a considerable amount of weight according to her mother Debbie Reynolds.
"Star Wars 7" is scheduled to be released in theaters come Dec. 18, 2015 and started its filming in Abu Dhabi. It's also rumored to make its next stop in Scotland to continue the shooting.
