Fans get a New Look at The Last Jedi with Upcoming Entertainment Weekly Cover Story

Entertainment Weekly has announced that Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be taking over the covers of an upcoming August issue, which will feature a fall preview of this highly-anticipated film release.

The covers, which wonder who truly is the Last Jedi, feature Rey with a lightsaber and Luke Skywalker™ in his hooded cloak.  The cover also teases the topic of the preview content, involving Luke’s return after decades of mystery, as well as a tribute to the late Carrie Fisher.

Rey and Luke’s fateful encounter has had fans guessing and speculating since the ending of The Force Awakens.  From what we know so far, Luke has been found on an isolated, but not uninhabited island by Rey, who is eager to learn the ways of the Force.

The article describes that he is not so much a legendary hero as he is a man “overpowered by regret”, and so fans will see Luke’s heavy conscience play out as Rey learns some hard lessons in hero worship.

EW Online has also uploaded a gallery of behind the scenes looks at the cast that will be featured in the print issue, as well as character stills captured from the film.  While the articles and images avoid major spoilers, they do help give viewers a sense of where the Star Wars saga is headed.

From these pictures, we see new looks at returning characters, as well as the exterior of a new location, Canto Bight, which houses a casino which was seen in the Vanity Fair Star Wars shoot.  There is even an image of Carrie Fisher on set as General Organa, working with director Rian Johnson.  Other images in the gallery feature an unmasked Kylo Ren, Finn and Poe taking the helm of various flying ships, and Rey during her time with Luke Skywalker.
