When I saw this stunning image on-line this week, I knew I wanted to feature it. After all, none other than Annie Leibovitz gave us her imaged Leia, the powerful General of the resistance. All four cover pictures evoke excitement for fans. Plus, included are links to many 40th anniversary articles and interviews, including the Vanity Fair piece with additional Leibovitz photos.
One link in particular talks about the franchises return of investments, when compared to other films, past and present. Then there is the link for “Weird Al Yankovic re-issue of his “yoda song,” if you are so inclined 😉
Thank you Annie and Vanity Fair for this strong woman image, an image that lives on in the hearts of girls, young and old, everywhere! Thank you for the tender and sweet photo of Carrie (as General Leia Organa), with daughter Billie Lourd, (as Lieutenant Kaydel Connix). And thank you for another image of a strong woman, brought into the story line, in Laura Dern, as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo. Beautiful artistry!
‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ First Look: Carrie Fisher on the Cover of ‘Vanity Fair’
Tomorrow, Vanity Fair will debut its big cover story on Stars Wars — Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, ramping up the promotional campaign that’ll take us all the way to Dec. 15, when the film arrives in theaters. Before that article arrives, however, images of the magazine’s four covers — photographed by Annie Leibovitz — have debuted online, providing looks at all of the primary stars of the sequel, including a stunner with the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia.
