A tweet from Bad Robot suggests that the master of the mystery box is taking the steady stream of leaks in stride.

For those of you who might be confused, the checkered piece of metal in the background of Abrams’ note is the hologram chess board that appeared in the original “Star Wars.”
Not that it needs to be said after the latest round of photos from TMZ, but this is Abrams’ way of saying “Of course the Millennium Falcon is in ‘Episode VII.’ Because what’s the point of continuing the series otherwise?”
The tweet is a fairly lighthearted response, especially from a director who has been burned by leaks before.
Maybe this is the beginning of a new Abrams era, one that’s a little cooler about letting info from set slip to the eager fans. Hopefully?
The rest of “Star Wars: Episode VII” is set to leak on December 18, 2015.
