Rob Wainfur, founder of The Bearded Trio and good friend of Coffee With Kenobi, has created a special video tribute to Star Wars in honor of the 40th Anniversary of its release. Here’s a brief description:
This is a compilation of interviews with cast members from Star Wars plugging and talking about the movie back in 1977. Sequels were mentioned, even back then. George Lucas hints that Luke is “interested” in Leia. Rumours of an ice planet in the sequel and Gary Kurtz talking about the new Kenner Star Wars figures about to come out.
Hope you like it. Happy 40th Anniversary Star Wars. Thank you for being a loyal friend for all these decades.

Yesterday we saw the four new limited-edition Vanity Fair covers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. They promised us even more images today and have delivered in a massive way! Not just the new images, though, but new character and city reveals as well.
With the new images released today, all captured by the great Annie Leibovitz, we get a closer look at the characters we already love — Luke, Rey, Leia, Kylo Ren, Poe, Finn, and more — but we also get our first look at new characters such as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, played by Laura Dern, and a shady grifter-type character called “DJ,” played by Benicio Del Toro.
