The first official photo has been released from behind-the-scenes of the highly anticipated "Star Wars: Episode VII". The picture nearly confirms our hopes and dreams, that our favorite droid R2D2 is returning. In addition to the good looking little guy, he is pictured with J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy and two others on their production team.

The photo was released via J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot twitter account, with the accompanying words, "Hi from the workshop! #StarWarsVII."

Details have remained incredibly scarce for the picture, true to the Abrams' way. We aren't sure if this photo was taken at Bad Robot offices, LucasFilm, etc, but that isn't of much consequence.

An official release date has been set for the next saga, hitting AMC Theatres on December 18, 2015. A prime holiday and oscar contender slot. We also recently learned that Michael Arndt has left screenplay duties, which has been taken over by Abrams and "Star Wars" veteran Lawrence Kasdan.

Will we next be getting a photo of our the other lovable and neurotic droid, C-3PO?

Are you happy about this first photo? Let us know in the comments section below!

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
