Empire has revealed the newsstand edition cover for their October 2017 Star Wars issue, which will focus on the forthcoming The Last Jedi film.
The cover depicts Daisy Ridley’s Rey wielding a blue lightsaber next to Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker. Like Empire‘s subscriber edition, this cover will also be completely holographic.
Luke appears to be wearing the same dark robes that he recently wore on the cover of a Hungarian film magazine.
Curiously, the magazine uses the worlds “there is another” on the cover, which is a direct reference to Yoda’s famous line in Return of the Jedi, declaring that there is another Skywalker. Could this be a hint at the full identity of Rey, and the plot for The Last Jedi, or is Empire just having a little fun?
This edition of the magazine will be available on newsstands Thursday, September 7.
Arriving Dec. 15, director Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Domhnall Gleeson as General Armitage Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma and Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke.
