Actors Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Natalie Portman and Ewan McGregor have teamed up with other stars of all six Star Wars movies for a new Vanity Fair photospread.

The American magazine grouped together 22 major performers in the legendary franchise, inviting cast members from the original 1977 film STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE to this year's (05) final installment STAR WARS: EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH.

Mastermind George Lucas, who directed four of the intergalactic movies, joined Ford, Fisher, Portman and McGregor as well as original Luke Skywalker star Mark Hamill, Samuel L Jackson, Liam Neeson and Hayden Christensen.

Robots R2-D2 and C3PO also joined their human co-stars for the reunion shoot.

Lucas admits the final part of the opening trilogy marks the end of an era in his career - and he now plans to stop making successful films.

He says, "I'm going to make movies nobody wants to see. I've earned the right to fail."
