Annie Leibovitz aims her lens at the cast of the next film – the results are breath taking.
Next month’s Vanity Fair features a great article by David Kamp – he talks to the cast, crew, and director Rian Johnson about the movie and Carrie Fisher’s legacy. It’s a worthwhile long read for a Sunday morning. It also has amazing photos from Annie Leibovitz. Be prepared as you scroll through – the photos of Carrie Fisher are beautiful, but may be little painful to see for some. They made me tear up a bit the first time I saw them.

“Carrie lived her life the way she wanted to, never apologizing for anything, which is something I’m still learning.” – Daisy Ridley
“… to be there, and to watch Mark revisit Luke, particularly in these scenes we were shooting towards the end of the film, was bizarre and jaw-dropping. It’s like when you see an old band re-unite and go on the road, and they don’t quite hit those high notes anymore—though in this situation it’s completely the opposite. It’s the fulfillment of where your imagination would take you when you imagine where Luke would go, or what he’s become.” – Oscar Issac
“I can’t say that phrase, what you just said: Carrie’s name and then the d-word. Because I think of her in the present tense. Maybe it’s a form of denial, but she’s so vibrant in my mind, and so vital a part of the family, that I can’t imagine it without her. It’s just so untimely, and I’m so angry.” – Mark Hamill
