As summer begins to wind down, the hype for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is beginning to ramp up. As part of its fall movie preview double issue, Entertainment Weekly has revealed two exclusive covers for TLJ, as well as all-new images from the film. These features are just the starting point for coverage of The Last Jedi that Entertainment Weekly will be bringing to fans throughout the week.
Check out the images below:
In addition, today’s feature article on TLJ looks at Luke Skywalker and Rey. Why has Luke exiled himself, and how does he respond to Rey’s arrival? Here’s an excerpt from EW.com:
Perhaps the only thing more unsettling than meeting your enemy is coming face-to-face with your hero.
That’s where the Star Wars saga left us at the end of The Force Awakens, with Daisy Ridley’s Rey standing atop a craggy, windswept island, holding out Luke Skywalker’s long-lost family lightsaber to the man she knew only as a legend. But in The Last Jedi, she actually has much further to go to find the warrior who inspired all those old stories.
This isn’t the Luke she’s heard about. It’s not the one we know either.
This is a broken man. One who would have preferred to stay lost. And he feels the same way about that lightsaber.
“The fact that Luke says, ‘I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end…’ I mean, that’s a pretty amazing statement for someone who was the symbol of hope and optimism in the original films,” Mark Hamill tells EW as part of our new cover story on the Dec. 15 film.
“When I first read it, my jaw dropped,” the actor says. “What would make someone that alienated from his original convictions? That’s not something that you can just make up in an afternoon, and I really struggled with this thing.”
You can read the piece in its entirety now on EW.com. This issue of Entertainment Weekly will be available wherever you buy magazines starting this Friday.
