Vanity Fair and Annie Leibovitz have come for The Last Jedi with a vengeance. They ‘re offering four covers (a rarity for them) which they revealed today. Tomorrow we get a look at the inside photos and the full story.
From the cover reveal, we see Phasma unmasked for the first time (RIP the popular Tumblr theory that she’s a Chiss) and learn the full name of Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico, “the new character with the most screen time.”
The issue will be on newsstands May 31 in New York and Los Angeles, and June 6 nationally.
StarWars.com has an interview with Annie Leibovitz today about her Star Wars work for Vanity Fair. There’s a photo of Andy Serkis in mo-cap gear, and the reveal that his character is Supreme Leader Snoke.
Snoke! Granted, it’s no Sheev, but aren’t we glad I didn’t do the Twitter roundup last night?
→ The first actual The Force Awakens action figures have been spotted – on eBay, naturally. It’s a stormtrooper.
This has clearly been around for a while, and we probably already linked it back in 2005, but what the hell: Vanity Fair’s Star Wars photo album, containing almost all the fantastic Annie Leibovitz prequel set photos.
Brand new Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull photo debuts (on print) Friday in the latest issue of Empire. You can check it out without all the extraneous junk over at StarWars.com, which also has behind-the-scenes video from Annie Leibovitz’s Vanity Fair photo shoot and the movie novelization cover.
