Vanity Fair to Release Special ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Covers

2 Min Read

It is hard to believe that Star Wars is coming to an end after four decades. The first film, Star Wars: A New Hope, was released in 1977, and here we are in 2019 anxiously waiting for the last adventure in the current trilogy and ninth film in the saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

To commemorate the film, iconic photographer Annie Leibovitz, who has been taking photos covering Star Wars for almost 40 years, was in the desert with the cast and crew documenting the filming. The photographs taken can be seen in the Vanity Fair summer The Rise of Skywalker special issue and the online photo gallery here.

The issue will have an in-depth behind the scenes look and never before seen photos, including the historic reunion of Lando, Poe Dameron, BB-8, and D-O in the Millennium Falcon. There will be two covers available, one featuring Rey (Daisy Ridley) representing the light side and another with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) representing the dark side of the force. Inside the magazine, there will be articles focusing on the film, including information on Keri Russell’s character.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be in theaters in Dec. 20, and fans will have a chance to watch the surviving Resistance go up against the First Order one more time.
