Star Wars: The Last Jedi shows Captain Phasma unmasked for first time
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. This cover is actually the only one with a single character. This is where everyone’s favorite characters are. D’awww. In the corner, there’s everyone’s favorite droid (after R2D2), BB-8. “As it is, Chewie’s there, and how much can you get out of [passable Chewbacca wail] ‘Nyaaarghhh!’ and two people who have known Han for, what, 20 minutes?” Vanity Fair covers featured the A-list stars from the next highly anticipated movie, The Last Jedi. “So one thing I’ve tried really hard to do is keep the humor in there, to maintain the feeling, amid all the heavy operatic moments, that you’re on a fun ride”. Ren’s new dark outfit pretty similar to his attire in The Force Awakens, but it’s definitely sleeker and less ragged than his previous look.
On one of the covers, a late Carrie Fisher is wearing a dark cape that has a tall collar, which almost covers her mouth. 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.
The first is their crown jewel, with the late Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia looking appropriately regal and standing alone. And hey, because we live in a world with annual Star Wars movies, the next chapter in the saga is coming out in December. The footage’s most interesting takeaways included Rey thrashing a blue lightsaber à-la-Luke around, the return of Kylo Ren and that ominous declaration from Skywalker: “It’s time for the Jedi to end”.
OK, pardon my French, but how fucking awesome does this cover look?
