The anticipation for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is building steadily, with Lucasfilm doling out bits and pieces to works fans into a fever pitch.

Now, they're released a bunch of new photos from the movie to Entertainment Weekly. Most of them are character portraits, but there are some intriguing glimpses, including one of Kylo Ren's (Adam Driver) new TIE fighter.

First, here's a look at Kylo looking very pensive, with his new scar running down his face:

Kylo's new ship, the TIE Silencer, is modeled after Darth Vader's fighter, because Kylo worships his grandfather:

"'Oh my God, this other man that I lost within a couple days was somewhat of a father figure," Ridley described Rey's thought process. "Now he's gone, and instead I'm with this grumpy guy on an island who doesn't want me here.'"

And last but certainly never least is a lovely image of Carrie Fisher as Princess/General Leia, as she's directed in a scene by Rian Johnson:
