Old School RPGs - Available Now @ DriveThruRPG.com

Vanity Fair unveiled four different covers featuring the stars of Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi on Tuesday.

The Force-ful issue, with photographs by longtime set visitor Annie Leibovitz, will be on newsstands nationwide June 6, with early digital access for subscribers starting Wednesday (May 24) and copies out in New York and Los Angeles May 31. The magazine said more photos will be online Wednesday, along with David Kamp’s story on the making of the film.

The publication is no stranger to Star Wars, having done a Leibovitz spread since 1999’s Episode I — The Phantom Menace, but this is the first time they’ve released alternate covers. They depict:

  • Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley as Luke Skywalker and Rey on the wind-swept shores of remote Ahch-To.
  • Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and Kelly Marie Tran as Resistance members Poe Dameron, Finn and Rose Tico, along with dynamic droid BB-8.
  • Gwendoline Christie, Adam Driver and Domhnall Gleeson as First Order warriors Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren and General Hux.
  • Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, looking as regal as ever.

We’re sure to learn much more about the follow-up to The Force Awakens Wednesday, but Tuesday’s preview story with the four covers did reveal a some new facts:

  • Tran’s character, revealed at Star Wars Celebration Orlando to be a Resistance maintenance worker named Rose, now has a surname: Tico
  • According to Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy, Fisher was to have an “expanded role” in the new trilogy’s finale, the still-untitled Episode IX. We now know that since the actress’ death late last year, she will not appear in that film.
