Abrams' sly note strikes back against those pesky Star Wars VII leaks

Here's the best way to address the flood of photos pouring from the Star Wars VII Abu Dhabi set, with a wink and a nod to an iconic piece of Star Wars lore.  J.J. Abrams fired a fun shot back across the bow of fandom with this humorous note posted on his Bad Robot Twitter account concerning the leaked images over the past few days, saying:

"I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII.  And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie."

But the best part of the note is where it is placed...  on the famous holochess board inside the fastest ship in the galaxy, confirming that the Falcon will fly again.  

Have a look, and don't forget to let the Wookiee win ...

Do you like the way Abrams handled this problem, and are you excited to watch the Millennium Falcon soar once more?
