Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia on Vanity Fair Star Wars issue

Annie Leibovitz is back and taking more photos for Disney and Lucasfilm. This time she turns her practiced eye to a Star Wars: The Last Jedi spread in Vanity Fair magazine. Four cover variants that were revealed today.

Leibovitz has photographed Star Wars casts before. Her first encounter was for The Empire Strikes Back in the Rolling Stone magazine in 1980 and she’s shot ever cast since 1999’s The Phantom Menace through to The Force Awakens.

I’m so happy Leibovitz was able to get a photo of Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa for that cover. I’m an emotional mess just thinking about her death and our loss. But what a portrait.

These issues will hit newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on May 31 and will be available nationally June 6.

One thought on “Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia on Vanity Fair Star Wars issue

  1. Melissa McGuire

    I was equally broken this morning, looking at these covers and realizing that the Luke and Leia covers have them separated. With Carrie gone, we will never again have a chance to have brother and sister together. It just makes me sad. But she does look regal and powerful.

    I went to Vanity Fair’s site this morning and pre-ordered those two covers (The one with Luke and the one with Leia) of that issue because I didn’t want to take a chance on not finding them in the store.

    Thanks for the story.
