If you’re going to create a new Star Wars movie, it’s a good idea to go to a veteran for advice. JJ Abrams has been in close contact with George Lucas, but it seems he’s decided it would be even better to go to someone from a galaxy far, far away.
He’s tweeted the first behind-the-scenes shot from the film, showing the writer/director alongside everyone’s favourite chirping droid, R2-D2. Off to the right is Lucasfilm head honcho Kathleen Kennedy. Abrams also included the message, ‘Hi from the workshop! #StarWarsVII’.
Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release December 18th, 2015, with Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher all set to return.
