I was wondering what having more Eighth Doctor would be like…I guess I might find out! And I hope that the Millennium Falcon will return and that note is fake.
A German dub of Doctor Who?? I have German friends but STILL think the language sounds funny.
It’s a real note. But it’s also a joke. Look at what the letter sits on – the Dejarik table where Chewbacca used to play the holographic chess-like game. Basically, JJ denied the existence of the Millenium Falcons return while simultaneously confirming it.
Haha cool! I thought it was just a simple red herring 😛
I am literally so excited about the Flash TV Show. And of course, for the Avengers.
