Vanity Fair Goes on the Set of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

-

Continuing a tradition that spans more than 20 years, famed portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz journeyed to the desert valley of Wadi Rum and beyond to document filming of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker for Vanity Fair.

Today we get our first look through her lens, with the magazine’s new summer issue and an in-depth look behind the scenes of the upcoming film’s creation. Two covers (see the gallery below) highlight the light and the dark, and Rey and Kylo Ren take the spotlight in their new costumes for the film.

Inside, and through an online photo gallery, fans will be transported on-location to the Jordan desert, inside the cockpit set of the Millennium Falcon, and behind enemy lines among the new leaders of the First Order.

The article also includes an exclusive first look at actor Keri Russell’s new character, and never-before-scene images of Mark Hamill, Naomi Ackie, and more!

Leibovitz photographed the cast of The Empire Strikes Back for Rolling Stone back in 1980, and beginning in 1999 with The Phantom Menace, has been visiting and shooting every Star Wars set for Vanity Fair.

J.J. Abrams returns to direct the final installment of the Skywalker saga. Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio. The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker cast members include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast are Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Matt Smith, Dominic Monaghan, and Keri Russell, who will be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian.

Composer John Williams, who has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977’s A New Hope, will return to a galaxy far, far away with The Rise of Skywalker, opening in theaters on December 20, 2019.
