Yesterday Star Wars fans were treated to a new look at the heroes and villains of Episode VIII: The Last Jedi with the release of the traditional Annie Leibovitz portraits. Today Vanity Fair have given us a more immersive look into the world of Rian Johnson’s film. The new images are below but there are more sneak peeks out there…
LucasFilm story guru and subreddit-deity Pablo Hidalgo gave us this instructive tweet on the pronunciation of the name of newcomer Kelly Marie Tran’s character.

From left to right: Rose, Teek (from the Ewok movie Battle for Endor) and an ‘O’ – Rose Tico. Not illuminating but nice to know… Also revealed (via the Star Wars Leaks subreddit) is the new LEGO minifig for Luke Skywalker as seen in The Last Jedi.
Natty hair. Also tweeted yesterday was this great picture from Laura Dern (whose character in the film we, so far, know little about) when she took the prime opportunity to watch a living legend at work.

No-one would pass up that chance…
We finally have the names of two of the most high profile newcomers to the saga. Laura Dern is Vice Admiral Holdo and Benicio Del Toro is DJ. Their role in the film has yet to be revealed however these two names were already floating around the internet, so perhaps their is more truth in other rumours connected with them. Read more in the VF article here.
Here are the new images from Vanity Fair. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is out in cinemas on the 15th of December, which is frankly too far away. MTFBWY.
