Star Wars 7 Casting Rumors Confirmed! Leaked Photos Of Millennium Falcon Debunked! J.J. Abrams React To TMZ Published Photos From Set In Abu Dhabi

Finally, Star Wars 7 casting rumors confirmed! Long-rumored British actor Maisie Richarson-Sellers has not been named during the "first wave" of Star Wars Episode 7 cast revelations which, paved way to the speculation that there could be more news coming our way soon.

"Game Of Thrones" Actress Gwendoline Christie and "12 Years A Slave" Star Lupita Nyong'o and are the new addition to the new movie's list of casts.

"I could not be more excited about Lupita and Gwendoline joining the cast of Episode VII," Lucasfilm president and producer Kathleen Kennedy said.

"It's thrilling to see this extraordinarily talented ensemble taking shape."

The two ladies will join the rest of the cast including, 'Girls' star Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow are among the chosen ones.

They will join original stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and R2-D2, who was actually the first cast confirmed to be joining Star Wars Episode 7.

In other news, while director J.J. Abrams seems to be nonchalant about any Star Wars 7 casting rumors he did not want to take one rumor involving his film sitting down.

J.J. Abrams is not happy about the leaked photos of the Star Wars sets. Abrams took to Twitter to vent out his disappointment with the alleged photos on the set, particularly the alleged inclusion of the "Millenium Falcon" on the newest installment to the Star Wars franchise.

"I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie," Abrams wrote in a note with the photo of the Millenium Falcon on the background he shared on his official Twitter.

TMZ previously posted 45 images of the Star Wars episode 7 set in Abu Dhabi including a photo of a never before seen pig-like alien in the film. However, what seem to really irritate Abrams was when TMZ published 22 photos of the Millennium Falcon, claiming that it is being built from set.

"Jedi sources tell us the new alien was manned by 5 men inside it's belly and was used in two scenes taking place in what looks like a Tatooine marketplace (Star Wars nerds get it)," TMZ reports. "According to reports, producers intend to use less CG in the new movies- instead, relying heavily on practical effects like the original trilogy, which is evident in these photos."

"Star Wars Episode 7" will be released to theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
