Director JJ Abrams penned a motivational note for the crew and cast on the first day of shooting for Star Wars Episode VII in Abu Dhabi last week.  

“Dearest cast and crew,” Abrams wrote. “What an honour it is to work beside all of you on Star Wars Ep. VII. I can’t thank you enough, for all work past and future.

“Let’s take good care of not just ourselves, but of each other. Amazing, but true: the world awaits this film. Let’s give ‘em something great. XO JJ”

Production began in Abu Dhabi on Friday, with Abrams tweeting a photo of a clapper board dusted with sand. 

Yesterday he launched Force for Change, a new Star Wars initiative in support of UNICEF.
