We’re still 211 days, 14 hours and 11 minutes until Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker roars into theaters, but the hype machine must feed the beast to keep everyone amped up for the final Star Wars movie in the latest trilogy.

A little over a month ago, the teaser trailer for Star War: The Rise of Skywalker was released at the Episode IX panel during the first day of Star Wars Celebration 2019. Now we get some further insight of what to expect in The Rise of Skywalker with 17 new photos released in a new Vanity Fair cover story about the upcoming sci-fi film.

Legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz was on the set of Episode IX and snapped some beautiful photos of the cast and crew. The stunning photos also give us some hints for Star Wars fanatics to examine and re-examine to find hidden clues as to what will happen in the ninth Star Wars chapter. There is also some very interesting behind-the-scenes photos to check out.

You of course get Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Billy Dee Williams is back as Lando Calrissian, and the late Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia.

But you’ll also get Keri Russell (The Americans and Mission Impossible III) as Zorii Bliss, who is the character in the maroon and gold with the large helmet. Richard E. Grant (Hudson Hawk and Downtown Abbey) as Allegiant General Pryde.

You’ll also get more of the mysterious Knights of Ren. Let’s hope they stick around for more than five minutes.
