Go behind-the-scenes of Annie Leibovitz’s Vanity Fair cover shoot with the cast of J.J. Abrams’ ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’ The video confirms that Adam Driver is playing Kylo Ren. We also see Lupita Nyong’o playing a motion capture character. 

Abrams revealed to Vanity Fair that he thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks. “I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks’s bones in the desert there. I’m serious! Only three people will notice, but they’ll love it.”

Vanity Fair’s contributing editor Bruce Handy saw some new footage from the movie, including a scene in which a Jawa-like creature popped out of the desert. Abrams called it “a classic, old-school seesaw puppet. We just buried it in the sand, and Neal Scanlan, the creature guy, pushed down on one side and the thing came up on the other side. It’s so old-school and crazy. We could improve this thing, but at some point do we lose the wonderful preposterousness?”
