J.J. Abrams have given Star Wars yet another item to drool over; this time, straight from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII.
Yesterday, Bad Robot, a production company owned by the director himself, tweeted one of the first pictures to be revealed from the set of the film.
The picture shows Abrams, alongside Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, as our favorite astromech droid pays a visit to the studio’s workshop.

The script for the film is currently being penned by Lawrence Kasdan, who also worked on The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, alongside Abrams.
The film is still in pre-production, so as you can imagine, specific details on the plotline or casting have been pretty tight lipped. There is speculation; however, that the storyline will concentrate on a new generation of intergalactic heroes which would include appearances from all your favorite Jedi like Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo.
There have been no actual announcements made at this point, so this is purely speculation. Although, one would figure that you couldn’t move further in the storyline without at last acknowledging the events of the past.
Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to be released on December 18, 2015.
