Vanity Fair Releases Amazing New ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Images

Today marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Star Wars, now known as Episode 4 aka The New Hope, and changed the way we look at movies ever since.

This year, the eighth episode in the long-running franchise, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to release in December. Earlier this week Vanity Fair released new images as a part of their on-going coverage of the film. The images include the first look at characters played Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern. But the main feature is the heartwarming image of Mark Hamill with Carrie Fisher.
