It's a Star Wars tradition to participate in a splashy Vanity Fair cover shoot by famed photographer Annie Liebowitz and Star Wars: Episode 7 is no different (although it almost was: rumors were that J.J. Abrams wanted to buck that tradition, but Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy was able to talk him into it). The cast and crew of The Force Awakens are on the cover of the upcoming June issue and while even more photos will be revealed, we do get our first look at Adam Driver without his Kylo Ren mask and Lupita Nyong’o’s motion-capture character!
On Wednesday, the highest criminal court in Texas threw out a state law banning "improper photography" in public, because they believe it violates "free-speech rights." This means everyone has the right to take pictures of you and your children without an consent.
This is the reason why the internet exists. Okay, maybe *technically* the internet exists so scientists could more easily exchange research and publications, but we're not scientists, so this will do for us. We really don't want to spoil the surprise, but website Look At This Photograph will take any picture on the internet, and simultaneously make it a million times better AND worse.
