'Star Wars' opened on this day in 1977

The force is with Star Wars fans on 40th anniversary

The force is with Star Wars fans on 40th anniversary

Following the Vanity Fair cover images from yesterday (view them in the gallery below), the magazine has released more of Annie Leibovitz's Star Wars: The Last Jedi photos and a look behind the scenes of the highly-anticipated film!

The issue is one of the US-based publication's four special summer editions celebrating the franchise's 40th anniversary.

You wait ages for some information about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and then a torrent comes all at once.

But the magazine will be only available in NY and Los Angeles from May 31, and the rest of the USA on June 6. Whether it was on how to tackle a role or deal with the press, the star was always ready to share her thoughts. "You'll see-there's a reason why we call him DJ", Johnson says. You probably assumed that Captain Phasma was human simply because you knew it was Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie under the chrome armor and helmet in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We see an array of glamorous aliens from a Canto Bight casino, giving Queen Amidala a run for her money in the realm of Star Wars fashion.

The planet that Luke was found on in The Force Awakens is called Ahch-To.

However, LucasFilm was quick to pour water on this suggestion, insisting: "We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher's performance as Princess or General Leia Organa".

It's a shame we won't get to find out what that film would have looked like, but Fisher and her iconic character will no doubt be given a proper send off in The Last Jedi this December.

"Carrie lived her life the way she wanted to, never apologizing for anything, which is something I'm still learning", Ridley said. I was thinking, O.K., let's go ultra-glamour.

Although Fisher won't officially be in Episode IX, there will most definitely be plenty of her story left to tell and that should be comforting to fans.
