Thanks to a lovely set of Annie Leibovitz photos that will arrive in this month’s Vanity Fair, the shroud of mystery that has surrounded Star Wars: The Force Awakens has lifted just a tad.
At the very least, we now know the names of a few characters.
Here’s Adam Driver as Kylo Ren who is part of the new bad guy sect, The First Order
My new favorite actor, Oscar Isaac, plays Resistance pilot Poe Dameron
Daisy Ridley as Rey, receiving direction from J.J. Abrams
Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o utlizing mo-cap technology for her role as Maz Kanata, who is a pirate.

Check out the photos along with a video of the shoot over at Vanity Fair. Things are looking pretty spiffy!
