Vanity Fair has released a bunch of new photos from behind-the-scenes of 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'.
Previously unused footage of the late actress will feature in the ninth 'Star Wars' movie, and will not be augmented with CGI.
‘Star Wars’ legend Mark Hamill has shared what’s thought to be the first ever image of him as the iconic Luke Skywalker. Hamill, who’s a keen user of social media (largely Instagram and Twitter), posted the photo of him on the Tunisian set of 1977’s ‘Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope’ (as it became known). Posting to his Instagram and Twitter accounts – both @hamillhimself – the actor described the image and how it was “perhaps” the first ever snap of him in character.
Disney has confirmed that ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ will include key scenes shot with IMAX cameras especially for the cinematic screening format.

‘Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi’ hits cinemas at the end of this year, so until then the world will continue to ask questions over what the title really means, who’s around to fight the First Order, and whether Luke Skywalker will be in the film for more than a silent minute this time. Note: This article contains possible spoilers and speculation for The Last Jedi. ‘Looper’ and ‘Brick’ director Rian Johnson is helming his first ever ‘Star Wars’ movie, and the step up from him previous indie work is startlingly evident.
Disney and Lucasfilm have announced that the eighth live action ‘Star Wars’ film will be called ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’. STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is the next chapter of the Skywalker saga. The previous two mid-trilogy titles ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and ‘Attack of the Clones’ were four-word titles leading fans to speculate up the wrong tree, but the beauty of ‘The Last Jedi’ as a title is that Jedi is both the singular and plural of the word, so it refers to Luke Skywalker AND Rey at the same time.
