'Star Wars' Instagram account debuts with Darth Vader selfie

Next 'Star Wars' film coming Dec. 2015

Apparently, selfies are also being taken in a galaxy far, far away.

The official "Star Wars" Instagram account debuted Monday with a photo of iconic villain Darth Vader taking a cellphone picture of himself.

The caption of the photo reads: "Another day at the office. #StarWars #DarthVader #selfies #gpom"

As of Tuesday afternoon, the "Star Wars" Instagram account has more than 115,000 followers.

The next film in the franchise, "Star Wars: Episode VII," has been given a Dec. 18, 2015 release date. "Star Trek" and "Super 8" director J.J. Abrams will be at the helm of the latest installment in the saga.

The project recently shuffled screenwriters, worrying much of the "Star Wars" fan universe. Screenwriter Michael Arndt exited, with Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan taking over the script.
