The Last Jedi Featured on the Latest Cover of Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly has previewed 2 new covers of its magazine that will be released in stores this week!

In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, we bring you intel from the Star Wars galaxy with an exclusive look at The Last Jedi and the return of the man and the legend known as Luke Skywalker.

When Daisy Ridley’s Rey heard stories of Mark Hamill’s farmboy-turned-Jedi, she expected to discover the warrior we remember from the original trilogy. Instead, she finds a man overpowered by regret, eager to close the book on his past while living out the rest of his days on an isolated island.

Isolated … but not unpopulated. We’ll get a new look at some of the creatures who inhabit this Force-sensitive temple alongside Skywalker. (And we don’t just mean the penguin-like Porgs.) As Yoda would say, “No … there is another.” – Quote from EW.

The covers show the “grey cloaked” Jedi (in training), Rey and Jedi Master Luke. A powerful and more confident looking Rey poses with her Lightsaber as the mythical Luke Skywalker peers out with piercing eyes through the shadows of his cloak. This gritty and dark preview excites us just as much as it does make us speculate. AND – We love Mark’s BEARD!
