Following the official Star Wars Day on May the fourth (be with you) new, amazingly detailed photos of the upcoming movie have appeared.

The images, taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, were published in the latest issue of Vanity Fair showing off more of the new movie than we've seen before.

One shot was of a real world build of an X-Wing with its pilot on the steps. The pilot is Poe Dameron played by Oscar Isaac.

Also shown off was Adam Driver's character Kylo Ren in black walking with snowtroopers on their secret home world base – could it be on the planet Hoth from Empire Strikes Back? If you saw the first Force Awakens trailer you'll remember this character as the evil dude with a cross-shaped three-beam lightsaber.

Another photo shows actress Lupita Nyong'o covered in CGI dots. Her character is Maz Kanata. After performing impressively in 12 Years a Slave it's likely her part won't be insignificant.

We can also see, for the first time, Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie, aka Brienne of Tarth, geared up as Captain Phasma.

The shot of various aliens is described by Vanity Fair as: "Galactic travellers, smugglers, and other assorted riffraff fill the main hall of pirate Maz Kanata’s castle".

That shot of a girl on a speeder is described as: "Actress Daisy Ridley for a scene in which her character, the young heroine Rey, pilots her speeder through a bustling marketplace on the planet Jakku".

The shot with the film creators includes music composer John Williams, producer and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, co-writer Lawrence Kasdan, and director and co-writer Abrams.

Abrams also revealed in the interview that the film may confirm the death of Jar Jar Binks, saying: "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."

Check out a deleted scene included on a disc of The Phantom Menace showing Jar Jar Binks apparently dying. Although it's thought he was later seen being fished out but this was cut.
