The Empire Reboots! Is that really the bold, eye-catching headline Lucasfilm wants on the cover of Vanity Fair? Is the new Star Wars saga really being dubbed a "reboot" or is that just mumbo jumbo they threw on there to sell magazines? Who knows. Vanity Fair has unveiled a new cover shot photographed by Annie Leibovitz showing Han and Chewie (Harrison Ford + Peter Mayhew) sitting with two new guys: Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, and BB-8 as BB-8. Yes, I'm including BB-8 as part of the new "trio" even though Oscar Isaac as X-Wing pilot Poe is missing from this cover. It's a cool shot and the best part is that Leibovitz has taken even more photos, and more will be revealed once the magazine is on stands. Woot.

Here's the first of many cover shots revealed by @VanityFair today featuring the new Star Wars cast:

Abrams, of the films Mission: Impossible 3, Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness.
