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!

Ch-ch-check out the 1982-style trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (below)!
