Get your lightsabers ready! Filming on "Star Wars Episode VII" has begun! Bad Robot

The Force is strong with Bad Robot. The official Twitter account of the production company Bad Robot revealed the first photo from the very first day of filming the new movie "Star Wars Episode VII."

The clapboard features the director J.J. Abrams and cinematographer Daniel Mindel -- who also worked with Abrams as the cinematographer for "Star Trek Into Darkness."

The clapboard is also dated for May 16, 2014.

While there's no working title or top-secret decoy title like "Blue Harvest," it's great to see the classic "Star Wars" logo and font in action again!
