    Since this is the first official one let's start it. I'm hoping "Rachel" has R2 with her. Any day now I expect to see pics of Mark Hamill in Jedi robes walking between sound stages.

    It's nice to see Artoo is back! I hope Threepio comes back as well.

    Doesn't Artoo look so happy to be working again? The years off must have been hard. :D

    He is super clean looking, must have been living the good life on Coruscant :) I checked the image for geo data to see if this was Santa Monica, London, SF, no dice though...

    EDIT: if this is from today based on what KK is wearing I am guessing this is in London its only 44f there right now.

    I looked but there's not a lot of pixels to make stuff out. I do notice that dirt clod looking thing with horns at the top. Is that an actual bell to the right of it? Also looks like security is tight those guys (the builders I assume) have visible photos id's.

    Who are persons #2 and #3?

    Just in case this isn't obvious, it does "officially" confirm that R2 will be back. Huzzah!

    Yes. If you look closely, (to the upper-middle-right...) we can also confirm that the Pixar Lamp will be making a cameo appearance. ;)

    I agree!

    It's great to see anything at this point! And a confirmation that Artoo will be back? I'll take it! :D

    It is not. The other thread is for any and all official pics released from the production.

    I thought this was appropriate to welcome Artoo back given the release date for Episode VII:

    LFL just couldn't let Doctor Who have the day all to itself...

    "We at BBC would like to surprise fans with this completely unexpected mini episode that will delight viewers the world around".
    "We here at LFL would like to say, LOOK OVER HERE OMG WE HAVE R2D2"!!!

    I'd hate it if R2 wasn't in the movie, but now that this thread exists, part of me would laugh.
