Star Wars Carrie Fisher on the Cover of Vanity Fair Magazine
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Star Wars: A New Hope,” on May 25, Vanity Fair released four elite covers that you have to see. Vanity Fair covers featured the A-list stars from the next highly anticipated movie, The Last Jedi.
On one of the covers, a late Carrie Fisher is wearing a dark cape that has a tall collar, which nearly covers her mouth. This cover is actually the only one with a single character. This photo quite possibly commemorates the star who we lost in December 2016 at age 60. Fisher, a necessity to the Star Wars series, finished filming Star Wars: The Last Jedi before she died.
Additionally to the picture of Princess Leia that we are literally bowing down too, the other covers are also pure gold. They also feature Luke Skywaker (Mark Hamill) Rey (Daisy Ridley), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Finn (John Boyega),Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran).
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. However, aside from the pictures, it doesn’t seem like there will be more spoilers regarding the actually film. Instead, Leibovits’ focus is to make these characters look aesthetically appealing and stylish for the magazine. This was the same goal when Vanity Fair released photos for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens issue.
The magazine did highlight the contrast between the Force Awakens issue and the issue soon to come out for the new movie. For example, actors and actresses were seen in completely different attire. Furthermore, the front cover notes, “May the 40th be with you,” insinuating that the issue will honor the legacy of the Star Wars films.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is in theaters Dec. 15, 2017. Watch the trailer, which dropped last night, here and may the force be with you.
