Vanity Fair’s Latest STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Cover

June 2015 Issue Of Magazine

The latest issue of Vanity Fair  has some winning portraits of a Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast from celebrated photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The mag has also revealed a 50-second behind-the-scenes video featuring Leibovitz on the set as well as an all-black Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o in motion-capture gear to match the new lines and more of Daisy Ridley.

Hope this gets Avatar off the top spot. There’s definitely a good chance of it breaking records. A December release date may help with that – school holidays, plus Christmas toy-marketing hype. We’ll see. I think repeat viewings will be key.  See below the VF cover featuring John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Peter Mayhew (a.k.a. Chewbacca), new droid BB8 and Harrison Ford. You can expect it to hit newstands in early to mid-May.
