'Star Wars' Episode VII

J.J. Abrams Boosts Millennium Falcon Buzz

breaking news

0604-jj-abrams-sw-chess-game-twitter-fox-01J.J. Abrams attempted to shoot down the Millennium Falcon dreams of 'Star Wars' fans -- but is actually going to send them into hyperspace with his first comment about TMZ's super secret set photos

The Episode VII director tweeted a pic of a handwritten note ... complaining the photos got out and wished people would stop "making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie." 

Sounds like he's dismissing the pics TMZ posted of what damn sure looks like the Falcon under construction -- but a closer look at his Twitpic reveals J.J.'s really giving fans a nudge and a wink.

J.J.'s note is pinned to something that looks JUST like the famous game board on Han Solo's ship. 
So, he's either toying with fans' emotions -- or acknowledging the Falcon's gonna fly again in a very cool way.

We're going with the latter. Message received, J.J.

I truly believe that J.J. Abrams is behind all the leaked photo's. It wouldn't be a surprise if this is J.J. Abrams writing this himself.

Looks like the MF to me! JJ Abrams has always been secretive and mysterious with this stuff. Look at what he did with Cloverfield. There are probably secret websites out there now will all kinds of E7 hints.

J.J. Abrams is NOT George Lucas! Episode VII is NOT Star Wars! And hell no I'm not paying to see this wannabe.

Of course it's gonna be in the movie. You can't bring back the original cast and not bring back the millennium falcon. That'd just be ridiculous.
