Bad Robot Tweeted the First Star Wars: Episode VII Production Photo, This Is Happening

R2-D2! We're suddenly finding it very difficult to focus.

J.J. Abrams’ production company, Bad Robot, just tweeted the first production photo from Star Wars: Episode VII, and it’s R2-D2! Have we told you how excited we are for Episode VII now that Empire Strikes Back writer Lawrence Kasdan is on board? Or because the original Star Wars cast is involved? Because we are excited. Like, an unhealthy amount of excited.

This caught us by surprise, because the film is still really early in production, but we’re happy to see anything, especially R2. We’re also really happy about how Abrams looks like a nervous fanboy in the photo (in a good way, like he really wants to make us all happy). Oh, and did we mention we’re excited for this movie?

Dan is many things, including a game developer, animator, martial artist, and at least semi-professional pancake chef. He lives in North Carolina with Lisa Brown (his wife) and Liz Lemon (his dog), both of whom are the best, and he will never stop reminding The Last Jedi's detractors that Luke Skywalker's pivotal moment in Return of the Jedi was literally throwing his lightsaber away and refusing to fight.
