“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” won’t be so far away anymore, as the film’s characters will grace four new covers of Vanity Fair.

According to Vanity Fair, photographer Annie Leibovitz captured images of the cast and crew for the new series.

Vanity Fair first put a Star Wars film on its covers back in 1999 before the release of “The Phantom Menace.” Since that time, Vanity Fair has featured Star Wars on the cover before each film’s new release date.

The new covers debuted today. The full profile and magazines will hit online shelves Wednesday and newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on May 31. The national release date is scheduled for June 6.

The covers include Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) on one, another with Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega), a third with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and, at last, a cover with just General Leia Organa, played by the late Carrie Fisher.

Take a look at the covers here.

Leibovitz said she has always appreciated the Star Wars universe, according to StarWars.com.

“I can remember, from the very beginning,” Leibovitz told StarWars.com in 2015, “I was astounded by the universe that George (Lucas) had created. I’d never seen anything like it. It was just unbelievable, and the actors and characters really resonated with all of us. It was a great, great visual story that continues to carry forth today.”
