Star Wars: Episode VII X-Wing fighter jet teased by J.J. Abrams
 
 

Director J.J. Abrams has revealed an updated model of the legendary X-Wing fighter jet that is expected to debut in theaters next year.

Director J.J. Abrams has revealed an updated model of the legendary X-Wing fighter jet that is expected to debut in theaters next year.

Star Wars: Episode VII is the first of the third trilogy of the Star Wars franchise and it stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Lupita Nyong'o, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Gwendoline Christie, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker.

The movie takes us approximately 30 years after the Return of the Jedi, which explains the reprising roles of previous actors. It also explains the modern look of the iconic X-Wing.

On the video, now posted on YouTube, Abrams is seen talking in front of a battle-scarred X-Wing that appears to have a slightly-modified design. Interestingly, we don't see a droid co-pilot sitting behind the cockpit. Perhaps it is now embedded into the jet's system? We don't know for sure.

Abrams, after all, doesn't want to be predictable. The new jet might not see the light of day in the movie. But assuming that it does, it still looks very cool. In fact, in the video, while Abrams is talking about the huge success of the Star Wars: Force for Change initiative, a pilot in an orange suit can be seen entering the cockpit, as if going out on a mission.

Star Wars has also confirmed that the jet is in fact a Episode VII X-Wing, and not a Z-95, contrary to other reports.

Setting aside the marketing ploy, Abrams announced that Star Wars: Force for Change, a brand new Star Wars initiative from Disney and Lucasfilm dedicated to finding creative solutions to some of the world's biggest problems, has raised more than $1 million.

 

To celebrate the milestone, Abrams said that new donors can win a once-in-a-lifetime chance to appear in Star Wars: Episode VII. The lucky winner will be transformed by makeup and costume teams into a Star Wars character and filmed for a scene in Star Wars: Episode VII.
