‘Star Wars' Episode VII: J.J. Abrams Responds To Claims Millennium Falcon Is In The New Film

J.J. Abrams has posted a witty response to claims that the Millennium Falcon will appear in the new 'Star Wars' movie, appearing to confirm that Hans Solo’s ship will be in the film.

The director is usually incredibly secretive, so his teasing and light-hearted tweet has delighted fans.

J.J. Abrams has been keen to keep details of the movie under wraps and only confirmed the cast after filming had begun.

‘12 Years A Slave’ star Lupita N’yongo and ‘Games Of Thrones’ actress Gwendoline Christie are the most recent additions to the cast and they’ll star alongside a whole host of big names, including ‘Girls’ actor Adam Driver and members of the original ‘Star Wars’ line-up such as Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker.

Peter Mayhew will also return to play Chewbacca.

The film is due for release in December 2015. Watch the video above for all the latest information on 'Star wars: Episode VII'.
