Vanity Fair just revealed 4 new Last Jedi cover as the Star Wars franchise prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary this week. A new shoot from the set of Episode VIII, The Last Jedi, by Annie Leibovitz.
• THE FORCE: Daisy Ridley as Resistance warrior Rey and Mark Hamill as mentor Luke Skywalker, on location in Ireland.
• THE DARK SIDE: First Order leaders Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren, and General Hux, played by Gwendoline Christie, Adam Driver, and Domhnall Gleeson.
• THE RESISTANCE: Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, and Kelly Marie Tran as the rebels Poe Dameron, Finn, and Rose Tico, with droid BB-8.
• THE LEGACY: No reflection on the franchise’s four decades would be complete without a tribute to Carrie Fisher, who died in December 2016. This final cover features only her character, Leia—the general, princess, and rebel who has been a figure central to the Star Wars universe from the very outset.
The Summer issue of Vanity Fair will be on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on May 31, and nationally on June 6.
May the 40th be with you!
