Entertainment Weekly‘s Anthony Breznican strikes again! He has revealed the cover story for The Last Jedi which is available for purchase online now, and will be officially released this Friday. Continue on for what the story will cover as well as new photos from The Last Jedi!
In the cover story released by Entertainment Weekly , Anthony Breznican has delved back into the Star Wars galaxy to bring us some exciting new information and photos from The Last Jedi. Here is what the story will encompass, released in segments online:
EW’s cover also delves into another bit of the movie’s hero-worship: John Boyega’s Finn, now a “big deal” in the Resistance, who embarks on a glamorous mission to the casino city Canto Bight alongside Star Wars newcomer Kelly Marie Tran, who plays Rose Tico, a self-described “nobody” who works as a Resistance mechanic.
Online at EW.com, we’ll roll out coverage of The Last Jedi in eight installments, beginning today with Luke and Rey, then Finn and Rose, and a look at some of the new creatures and villains.
Tomorrow: Details about the late Carrie Fisher’s final appearance as Leia Organa, with a story from Poe Dameron co-star Oscar Isaac that will make you miss her even more than you do now, if that’s possible.
Breznican’s cover story focuses on Rey upon finding Luke Skywalker, her expectations, and where Luke truly is mentally at their first encounter:
When Daisy Ridley’s Rey heard stories of Mark Hamill’s farmboy-turned-Jedi, she expected to discover the warrior we remember from the original trilogy. Instead, she finds a man overpowered by regret, eager to close the book on his past while living out the rest of his days on an isolated island.
Isolated … but not unpopulated. We’ll get a new look at some of the creatures who inhabit this Force-sensitive temple alongside Skywalker. (And we don’t just mean the penguin-like Porgs.) As Yoda would say, “No … there is another.”
Here are the other photos from The Last Jedi revealed in the cover story:

Finn in a Ski Speeder on Crait. I guess he doesn’t need a pilot anymore! He’s probably that Ski Speeder we saw bouncing off the surface of Crait in the first teaser, still getting the hang of things!

In addition to the new photos, here is a video from Breznican about the cover story and the film:
We are excited to check out the complete story from Anthony Breznican (and photos from Jonathan Olley).

What do you think of the new photos and details about Luke?
