The first behind-the-scenes photo from Star Wars: Episode VII is now online.

Courtesy of Bad Robot’s Twitter feed, it features R2D2 paying a visit to the studio’s workshop alongside writer-director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.

The caption reads: “Hi from the workshop!”, alongside a “#StarWarsVII” hashtag.

The film is expected to begin production early next year and will hit cinema screens on December 18, 2015.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
