“Breathe. Just…breathe.” Now, reach out and point your cursors to the gallery below, where you’ll find a helping of brand new action shots for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

In case you missed it, Rian Johnson’s upcoming space opera – one that appears to share DNA with Empire after all – has been elected as the cover star of Entertainment Weekly’s fall issue. And that can only mean one thing: scores of exciting tidbits relating to the next chapter in Lucasfilm’s beloved Skywalker saga.

Pegged for release on December 15th of this year, EW’s coverage will no doubt serve as a welcome primer for Force Friday (September 1st), which is expected to herald a new line of merchandise for The Last Jedi and other Star Wars properties simmering in development.

But first, EW’s raft of photos. After spotlighting Rey and Luke and their steely first encounter, not to mention those delightful little porgs, we now have an all-new pic of Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran), the latter of whom has been described as a “gearhead, a grease monkey, a behind-the-scenes jack-of-all-trades.” Together, they form the dynamic duo of the Resistance, with recent story rumors claiming that both Finn and Rose will go undercover to infiltrate a possible Mega Star Destroyer in their quest to sabotage the First Order.

Exactly how that quest pans out, though, is another question entirely. For now, however, you can check out this latest action shot, one in which Finn is back on his feet after suffering a horrible injury at the hands of Kylo Ren aboard Starkiller Base. It’s just as well, as writer-director Rian Johnson has gone on record to claim that John Boyega’s unlikely hero will be championed as a “big deal” following the events of The Force Awakens.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be with us on December 15th. Beyond that, the Powers That Be have also lined up a Han Solo anthology movie and the as-yet-untitled Episode IX, which is to be directed by Colin Trevorrow. And after that? Who knows, but there have been rumblings that the Mouse House has plans for new Star Wars movies all the way up until 2022.
