Warning: the following contains small plot details and in-costume images of a number of unrevealed characters. Some may consider these mild spoilers.
The first images of Star Wars: The Last Jedi have been shared including the first in-costume shots of Benicio del Toro and Laura Dern. Photographer Annie Leibovitz, on assignment for Vanity Fair, travelled to the closely guarded Pinewood Studios set and even as far as the rocky shores of Ireland to photograph a number of as-yet unseen characters, along the way confirming a few lingering rumours about the eighth main-saga instalment.
