Darth Vader Shares His First Selfie on Official ‘Star Wars’ Instagram

LucasFilm launches their own Instagram to share photos direct from the set of ‘Star Wars 7’. But first, the galaxy’s deadliest villain joins social media.

Lucasfilm has launched the official Star Wars Instagram account, which in the coming months and years ahead leading up to the premiere of Star Wars: Episode VII in 2015, will be used to share photos from deep inside the production. From props, to wardrobe, to the SFX team, to the actors on set, Star Wars Instagram promises to deliver front door service. But first, since pre-production is still starting up and director J.J. Abrams is just now finding his sea legs in bringing the next thrilling chapter in this sci-fi saga to the big screen, we get Darth Vader sharing his first ever Selfie as he storms Tantive IV in search of stolen Death Star plans. Other photos so far include a behind-the-scenes shot from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back with Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and David Prowse as Darth Vader during their epic light saber battle. VFX master Colin Cantwell's Star Destroyer concept model for Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. A whole bunch of Slave Leias from Comic-Con 2010. And Kenner's Rancor Monster action figure from 1984.
