'Star Wars' Launches Conquest of Instagram With Darth Vader Selfie

Only Sith Lord would be evil enough to pause amid the smoke and bodies of Tantive IV to snap a selfie, and that's precisely what Darth Vader did to announce the entry of Star Wars into Instagram.

"Follow us," the message states. "It is useless to resist."

Honestly, who wants to resist? Already the Instagram account has featured a behind-the-scenes photo from The Empire Strikes Back and a look at a Star Destroyer concept model from A New Hope. And it seems likely it will be home to some production shot for Star Wars: Episode VII, once director J.J. Abrams begins filming at Pinewood Studios.

The new chapter in the Star Wars saga opens Dec. 18, 2015.
