Han, Chewie + The New Trio on Vanity Fair's Latest 'Star Wars' Cover
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:
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, continuing the beloved original trilogy about Luke, Leia, Han & Chewie that ended in 1983, is directed by J.J. Abrams, of the films Mission: Impossible 3, Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness. The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi, The Big Chill, The Bodyguard) and J.J. Abrams, with Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm producing. This debut is the beginning of a brand new saga, with another trilogy planned for this storyline, not to mention other standalone movies in this universe. Disney, after acquiring Lucasfilm, will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters worldwide on December 18th, 2015.
Classic Annie Leibovitz. Everyone looks great!

Shouldn't Finn be sweating and panting?

Doesn't Chewie age? He's like 250 in dog years

Well, in all seriousness, his eyeliner DOES-look darker, and his fur does look an awful-lot longer (and lighter).......
