Millennium Falcon confirmed through tweet

- June 4th, 2014

J.J. Abrams has become a troll.

Today, the online world erupted into balls of excited flames as confirmations were made by Bad Robot, Abrams’ production company working on Episode VII, that the Millennium Falcon would be in the new film.

Bad Robot tweeted the snarky photo below of a supposed internal memo Abrams had left on one of the props asking employees not to leak photos of anything on set.

 

“I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie,” the memo says.

At first glance, it may come off as a stern, almost lecturing memo from Abrams, but according to Star Wars nerds everywhere, the memo was propped up on a hologame table, which can be seen in the original trilogy aboard the famous ship.

It’s not the first time Abrams has had to address leaks with staff members, and quite frankly, it’s going to be almost impossible to prevent them moving forward considering the enormity of his staff.

In April, Badass Digest posted a leaked photo of a letter sent to all cast and crew members on set. In it, Abrams threatens that if a person is found to be leaking information to the press, he’d “personally destroy” their reputation and careers. Although the letter turned out to be fake, but through various reports, we know how serious Abrams is about keeping everything under wrap.

For now, though, Abrams has stayed ahead of the game, becoming the leaker instead of the man sitting behind a computer looking at what’s been anonymously leaked.

Does this mean Abrams will have to destroy his own career and reputation?

One can only hope.
