While the world counts down to the arrival of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (just 16 days to go!), Daisy Ridley has already set forth into a different sort of galaxy not so far, far away: Instagram.

She’s just one of a number of stars who joined the photo-sharing platform over the past year. Others who signed on in 2015 included Chris Hemsworth (ever wanted to peek in his backyard? Kind of creepy, but now you can) and his brother Liam Hemsworth, who made puppets and humans everywhere jealous when he cozied up to Miss Piggy in his debut snap, as well as Adele, Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, and Prince — who, perfectly, dubbed his account Princestagram.

From actors to musicians and even British royalty, Instagram rounded up the top celebrities who joined the service in 2015, based on the number of followers they’ve gained to date since they signed up. Keep reading to see which stars made the cut (and see the first photos they posted).
