Vanity Fair's 'The Last Jedi' photoshoot is full of fascinating new details

However, LucasFilm was quick to pour water on this suggestion, insisting: "We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher's performance as Princess or General Leia Organa".

In case you weren't already sad enough about Carrie Fisher's death in late 2016, producer Kathleen Kennedy has revealed that the actress would have had a huge role in "Star Wars: Episode IX".

It may seem like a long time ago but it's actually 40 years since "Star Wars: A New Hope" opened in cinemas in the United States, creating a cultural phenomenon that is still as strong nowadays.

Vanity Fair's covers of "Star War" characters from the coming movie "The Last Jedi", will surely allow the force to flow among the movie franchise's followers when they debut this week.

Still, we do still have Fisher's work in "The Last Jedi" to look forward to. Based on the early plot synopsis and trailer, we know that the First Order is making a power move in order to get a better position in the senate.

To help save the galaxy from Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) and his ilk, Rey (Daisy Ridley) is on a mission to enlist the help of Master Jedi Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). There's also relative-newcomer Kelly Marie Tran, who was introduced at Star Wars Celebration, as a "maintenance worker for the Resistance named Rose Tico". Since then, Leibovitz has taken portraits of Star Wars actors for every movie since then, including "The Force Awakens".

Inside, there's also imagery of Benicio del Toro and Laura Dern's characters in The Last Jedi.

Famed photographer Annie Leibovits is the mastermind behind these new photos that will be showcased in Vanity Fair, and hopefully they'll provide a deeper insight into Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
