May the Fourth continues to rule, and now there's more to celebrate. More "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" characters were just revealed, or at least confirmed, in new photos shared by Vanity Fair. As a bonus, one more "big character reveal" is said to be coming from the June issue, and if you head to Vanity Fair's site you can sign up for the newsletter and the final photo will be e-mailed to you tomorrow (Tuesday, May 5) at 4 p.m. It's something to look forward to!

Annie Leibovitz took photos of the cast for the new issue, which features Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Chewie, and newbies Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and BB-8 on the cover.

Inside, awesome new photos show Adam Driver as "next-generation bad guy Kylo Ren" as he "commands snowtroopers loyal to the evil First Order on the frozen plains of their secret base." So he is a villain, and he was the one who was swinging the three-pronged lightsaber of the first teaser. Photos also show that Lupita Nyongo'o will play a CGI character, Maz Kanata, and one group caption notes, "Galactic travelers, smugglers, and other assorted riffraff fill the main hall of pirate Maz Kanata's castle." So she plays a pirate with a castle. Leibovitz also shared a photo of "Dashing Resistance pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac)" as he poses "alongside his trusty X-wing fighter."

Check out all the photos at Vanity Fair, and watch this on-set video with the cast:

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will be released in theaters on December 18, 2015.
