Vanity Fair reveals 4 new covers for ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is scheduled to reach American theaters on December 15.
But the magazine has only said that the issue will be available in NY and Los Angeles from May 31, and the rest of the USA on June 6.
It becomes even more heartbreaking when Kathleen Kennedy implies that we would have had so much more to look forward to.
The chrome helmet has been removed, and Star Wars fans finally see that intimidating Captain Phasma looks a lot like … intimidating Gwendoline Christie beneath her shining armor. I don’t think we’ve met before.
However, Lucasfilm and Disney have confirmed she won’t be digitally recreated for Episode IX or added with extra scenes from The Last Jedi. While we still know next to nothing about the plot of the film, these covers may give us an idea of what to expect. The fourth cover is entirely dedicated to late actress Carrie Fisher, who portrays General Leia Organa in The Last Jedi.
“She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend”.
While details of “The Last Jedi“, due out on December 15, have been kept secret, Vanity Fair said Fisher’s role in the film was not affected by her death, other than making it “more poignant: the film farewell of both the actress and the character”. 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.
