Back in full force!

Vanity Fair celebrated Star Wars' 40th anniversary with four exclusive covers featuring the stars of the upcoming film The Last Jedi.

The covers of the issue, which hits newsstands later this month, were shot by Annie Leibovitz on location in England and Ireland in May 2016.

Scoring her own solo cover as General Leia Organa is the late Carrie Fisher, with a second cover featuring (the last!?) Jedi duo Luke Skywalker and Rey — aka Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley.

A third cover shows Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), John Boyega (Finn), Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico) and BB-8. The villainous forth cover features Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux) and Adam Driver (Kylo Ren).

The Nostalgia Is Strong With This 1982-Style Trailer For Star Wars: The Last Jedi!

Ha! Love this!

When the first Star Wars movies came out, trailers were very different.

Not only were they only shown in theaters — so you had to go to the movies just to find out what movies were coming out — they used to require an epic-voiced trailer guy to tell you how cool everything was.

So the folks at ScreenCrush decided to show us what it would be like if Episode VIII had come out way back then. They even aged up the footage to make it look antique!

It's hilarious… but also pretty awesome!

Todd Fisher Encourages Kids With Mental Illnesses To Use Carrie Fisher As A 'Role Model'

| Filed under: Mental HealthCarrie FisherStar WarsBillie Lourd

Carrie Fisher

Todd Fisher continues to carry out his sister's legacy.

In honor of National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day, Debbie Reynolds' son partnered with the Child Mind Institute's new #MyYoungerSelf social media campaign to tell the story of Carrie Fisher's battle with bipolar disorder.

The 59-year-old opened up about what it was like for the late Star Wars actress growing up with a mental illness:

"When Carrie and I were growing up, we knew there was something going on with her. Her behavior got more and more extreme, everything seemed to be more difficult for her. She was struggling through something and was very alone. All she had was the support of her family."

Eventually, Billie Lourd's mother was able to receive the medical help she needed — which led to all the incredible work she was able to accomplish throughout her long career.

Todd ended the inspiring video by encouraging children who may face similar obstacles to seek treatment:
