Star Wars on Instagram: Darth Vader 'selfie' launches Lucasfilm's official Star Wars Instagram page

First photo posted: Darth Vader 'selfie'

Star Wars fans have a new account to follow on Instagram.

The legendary sci-fi franchise launched its Instagram account on Monday.

The first photo posted was an image of Darth Vader snapping a "selfie" using the Instagram app.

Star Wars already has a large following on Twitter and Facebook.

Production on the newest film, Star Wars: Episode VII, is slated to begin early next year.

The newly created Star Wars Instagram will (hopefully and most likely) be a great place for sneak peeks into the filming of the movie.

Right now fans can enjoy photos of a concept model of the Star Destroyer featured in the first movie, A New Hope, a bevy of beauties dressed as Princess Leia in her slave girl bikini, a behind the scenes photo of Vader and Luke Skywalker's epic light saber battle from A New Hope, and a vintage Rancor monster toy (mint in box!!! OMG!!).

Like many fans, I can't wait to see what comes next.
