Star Wars now has an Instagram account

Last December 2, an awesome thing from a galaxy far, far away happened. Star Wars finally launched its own official Instagram account, to the delight of fans around the galaxy. In just two days since launch, it already has 86,801 followers.

Star Wars: Episode VII is 2 years away – light years in Star Wars fan time – but this is most likely part of Disney’s marketing campaign to boost excitement about the film (as if we weren’t already?)

Oh and what was their first photo? Of course, a selfie of our favourite Sith Lord with the caption “Another day at the office. #StarWars #DarthVader #selfies #gpom”
