Vanity Fair Covers: 'Star Wars' Documented With Four Alternatives

Lest you worry that DJ isn't an epic enough name for the Star Wars universe, Johnson promises that there's a deeper meaning behind it. The main characters are all in costume, and they have class.

Meanwhile, Kylo Ren still has not shaken off the killing of his father and Adam Driver had this to say about his character: "I feel like nearly everyone is in that rehabilitation state".

As Vanity Fair notes, their relationship with Annie Leibovitz stretches back to 1999, which she first captured the cast of The Phantom Menace.

New plot details about The Last Jedi were recently revealed following the film's major unveiling at this year's Star Wars Celebration.

Because that's the beauty of this galaxy - no matter how many people we meet or how many places we travel to, there are always new characters to fall in love with and new territory to explore. It's also reminding us that no matter how much we emotionally prepare ourselves, The Last Jedi is going to be really hard to watch.

Giving Carrie Fisher her own cover with the tag "The Legacy" is just one of the many fitting send-offs for the late actor, who died in December 2016.

On the side of the Resistance, we see Poe and Finn (thankfully) just as close as before, alongside new character Rose Tico, as played by Kelly Marie Tran. Behind him, we see Gwendoline Christie without her helmet as Captain Phasma. So would General Hux, played by Domhnall Gleeson.

The stills were released as part of Vanity Fair's cover story on the upcoming film. "The minute she finished, she grabbed me and said, 'I'd better be at the forefront of IX!'" Kennedy remembers.

Directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now slated to reach both U.S. and United Kingdom cinemas on 15 December 2017.
