The Last Jedi Exclusive Images

We've got new details and images from their encounter in The Last Jedi to launch our cover story rollout ...

As Rey already knows, you have to search for a bit to find Luke Skywalker. We've got new details and images from their encounter in The Last Jedi to launch our cover story rollout ...

Can Rey save Luke from his own darkness?

Writer-director Rian Johnson says one theme of The Last Jedi is the peril of meeting your heroes. In Part 1 of EW's cover story, we dive into the meeting between Luke Skywalker and Rey -- and their unexpected clash.

The hero theme of The Last Jedi is also a part of the Finn storyline, with John Boyega's ex-stormtrooper seriously considering becoming an ex-good-guy, too. But in Part 2 of EW's cover story, we explore how Kelly Marie Tran's Rose Tico, a Resistance mechanic, helps pull him back from the brink.

Chewbacca and the porgs

These puffin-like creatures from the island of the first Jedi temple are cute, cuddly, and vexing to Wookiees. More here in Part 3 of EW's The Last Jedi coverage: The Creatures of Ahch-To.

The Caretakers of Ahch-To

These amphibious creatures are what writer-director Rian Johnson describes as alien nuns -- a religious order, faithful to the Force, who tend to the ancient Jedi structures on Ahch-To. Read more about them in Part 3 of our Star Wars coverage.

The Praetorian Guard

Modeled on the Emperor's ceremonial watchmen from Return of the Jedi, these crimson-armored bodyguards are more like samurai. More on them (and the tyrant they protect) in Part 4 of EW's The Last Jedi cover story.

Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, in retreat

The Last Jedi will bring us face-to-what's-left-of-his-face with Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis,) who stands as Kylo Ren's master and manipulator from the dark side of the Force.

Oscar Isaac as X-wing ace Poe Dameron

Tomorrow, EW has a story about the bond between the Resistance's best fighter pilot and Carrie Fisher's General Leia Organa.

The ex-stormtrooper was not a pilot in The Force Awakens, but he picks up new skills in The Last Jedi. This morning, look for new photos in EW's feature on his covert mission with a new character: Kelly Marie Tran's Resistance mechanic Rose Tico.

The TIE Silencer is a new ship, modeled on Darth Vader's TIE Advanced X1 from the original 1977 Star Wars and the TIE Interceptors from Return of the Jedi. This image features the ship in battle, flanked by the more expendable TIE Fighters.

The Casino at Canto Bight

Finn and Rose's mission takes them to this glamorous galactic getaway -- a city of light and games, where fortunes are won and lost. We'll have more information today about the spike-winged little ships on the landing pad.
