Entertainment Weekly has released their first wave of coverage focusing on the impending slate of fall/winter blockbuster films and it starts with none other than Star Wars: The Last Jedi. With this being just the beginning of EW’s coverage of the latest Star Wars film, fans can expect a flood of new details and photos emerging over the next several days.
EW has revealed the two cover variants for their upcoming issue. Both covers take us to Ahch-To and focus on our favorite force wielders, Luke Skywalker and Rey. The first cover features Rey in an action pose with her lightsaber ignited while the second features a hooded, stoic looking Luke Skywalker. Check out both of the covers below:
EW’s Anthony Breznican has provided us with exciting new details and photos from The Last Jedi. His cover story on Rey upon finding Luke Skywalker, her expectations, and Luke’s mindset during their first encounter. “When Daisy Ridley’s Rey heard stories of Mark Hamill’s farmboy-turned-Jedi, she expected to discover the warrior we remember from the original trilogy. Instead, she finds a man overpowered by regret, eager to close the book on his past while living out the rest of his days on an isolated island. Isolated … but not unpopulated. We’ll get a new look at some of the creatures who inhabit this Force-sensitive temple alongside Skywalker. (And we don’t just mean the penguin-like Porgs.) As Yoda would say, “No … there is another.”
Fans should prepare for an overload of information for the next few days as details continue to emerge. “Online at EW.com, we’ll roll out coverage of The Last Jedi in eight installments, beginning today with Luke and Rey, then Finn and Rose, and a look at some of the new creatures and villains. Tomorrow: Details about the late Carrie Fisher’s final appearance as Leia Organa, with a story from Poe Dameron co-star Oscar Isaac that will make you miss her even more than you do now, if that’s possible. Our goal is to avoid spoilers, but give fans a sense of where The Last Jedi is steering the Star Wars saga – all with insight from our guide, writer-director Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick.)”
