Gallery: Vanity Fair on Star Wars

(Inspired by the Vanity Fair Photo Shoot)

There's been a growing buzz surrounding the 40th anniversary of Star Wars since the beginning of the year, but today is the day!  On May 25th 1977, Star Wars made its debut in theaters.  Forty years later, the franchise is going stronger than ever, and fans are more fanatical than ever.
The Star Wars films are pretty much the cornerstone of geek culture, and if you're reading this blog, it's a sure thing that the franchise played a role in your life as well.

Tuesday, Vanity Fair revealed the covers for their Star Wars 40th anniversary issue.  Yesterday, they followed the covers up with  a behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot with the legendary Annie Leibovitz, along with interviews with the cast and crew.  The magazine's features are the first in-depth coverage of The Last Jedi, signalling that the summer's marketing train has officially left the station.

Needless to say, the photos of Carrie Fisher stir up the feels in a major way.  Seeing her intimately posed with Mark and her daughter raises the spectre of what might have been, especially in light of the recent revelation that Fisher would have led ninth Star Wars movie

Head on over to Vanity Fair to check out more gorgeous photos and behind-the-scenes stories. It’s a very interesting read, but be warned!  Some of the articles are mild spoilers.  There's at least one instances in which an actor describes a scene he shot with Fisher that clearly indicates a confrontation between the two actors' characters.
