Vanity Fair’s full spread and story is up! You need to go check it out, but here’s a quick rundown what we’ve learned: Laura Dern is Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo of the Resistance, and Benicio Del Toro doesn’t get a name at all in the film – though they’re calling him DJ. (Seeeecretsss.) And yes, there are pictures of both. Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico has a sister, Paige, a Resistance gunner, played by Veronica Ngo. And the planet filmed in Dubrovnik is indeed named Canto Bright. “I was thinking, O.K., let’s go ultra-glamour. Let’s create a playground, basically, for rich assholes,” director Rian Johnson said.

The article also includes some touching tributes to (and photos of) Carrie Fisher, so keep the tissues handy.

Annie Leibovitz’s Exclusive Cast Portraits of Star Wars: The Last Jedi for Vanity Fair (Part 1)

  • Daisy Ridley as Rey, at the helm of the Millennium Falcon, with Joonas Suotamo as co-pilot Chewbacca
  • Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, and Kelly Marie Tran as the rebels General Leia Organa, Poe Dameron, Finn, and Rose Tico, with droid BB-8
  • Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, with droids R2-D2 and BB-8 and the Droid Department
  • First Order leaders General Hux, Kylo Ren, and Captain Phasma, played by Domhnall Gleeson, Adam Driver and Gwendoline Christie
Calm down, Reylo fam.

Firstly, Rian’s not saying there won’t be romance in TLJ. He’s saing that there’s “no one-to-one equivalent of the Han-to-Leia, burning, unrequited love. In our story, that’s not a centerpiece.” Read: so there most certainly will be some romance but it’s not a central storyline in itself like Han and Leia’s road trip filled with in-your-face, we’re-about-to-bang UST melodrama. We know at least Finn/Rose is most probably going to be a little romantic, but not a central plot point.

Secondly, did you read in that other article how Adam refused to have lunch with Mark because of his acting process? We know he went to dinner with Daisy, so, knowing Adam, that tells a lot about what kind of relationship Kylo and Rey are going to have in the future. Clearly Adam didn’t think it’d interfere with him getting into character and Kylo’s mindset, or, even better, thought it crucial and helpful to bond with Daisy more. So, don’t give up hope yet, fam. We’re all good. Reylo was never going to happen before IX anyway, and for me personally, and to most of us, the most important aspect of the potential Rey/Kylo relationship is the bond they could share and how much richer the story would be with those two interacting and bonding. All that we’ve seen hints at them getting closer, romance or not. But, this Rian quote does nothing to refute romantic Reylo either.
