Star Wars now has its own Instagram account.

The sci-fi saga's new site was launched with a "selfie" of Darth Vader, captioned: "Another day at the office. #StarWars #DarthVader #selfies #gpom."

A tweet from @starwars asked fans to follow the new Instagram account, with the message: "It is useless to resist."

The account already has 138,426 followers.

Star Wars: Episode VII is due to be released in 2015 and will be directed by JJ Abrams.

So far little is known about the film but it is thought that original cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will be back. Open auditions to fill two roles have also been held in the UK.
