A new photo of Star Wars: Episode VII director JJ Abrams alongside classic robot character R2 is now up for all movie fans to see.

We love Stars and R2-D2 so it’s a great story for us and now we have the first behind-the-scenes photo of the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII movie,” which features, along with director J.J. Abrams and producer and LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy, the beloved droid of the “Star Wars” franchise.

Given how hush-hush Bad Robot has been about the production, R2-D2′s possible return is some of the biggest information granted on the sequel, other than some low-key casting notices.

Fellow robot C-3PO could also make a return. The two are the only characters to appear in all six films in addition to the “Clone Wars” TV series and the “Star Wars Holiday Special.” As spotted by some very observant Trekkies, R2-D2 also made cameos in Abrams’ “Star Trek” and “Star Trek Into Darkness.”

The  droid has appeared in all six previous motion pictures since 1977.

Along with directing, Abrams has also taken on screenwriting duties with Lawrence Kasdan.

A new venue in Manchester has been announced for this weekend’s open auditions for Star Wars Episode 7.

Star Wars: Episode VII is expected to bring back original trilogy stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, although no castings have been confirmed for the sequel.

Shooting starts in Spring 2014, directed by JJ Abrams is due for release December 2015.
