We’re all anxiously awaiting Episode VII and voraciously devouring any bit of information we can get our hands on. And J.J. has admitted that due to the nature of Disney and Lucas Film, he’s not going to be able to be as secretive as he normally likes to be. So we’ve been starting to see a series of little tidbits and snippets from the upcoming film in an official capacity.
In the latest video, while reminding us of the charity event that will land a lucky someone a minor role in the film, Mr. Abrams gives us a peek at an X-Wing. It looks slightly different from the X-Wing fighter we came to know in the original trilogy though. There was originally debate as to whether it was even an X-Wing. Many speculated it was a Z-95, and there is a certain similarity there for sure. But the official Star Wars Twitter account confirms that it is, in fact, an X-Wing from the upcoming film.
A lot of fans are irritated and up in arms, but you have to remember a couple of things. 1). it is 30 years later in this universe. Things change. 2). WHO CARES IT’S FREAKING AWESOME EITHER WAY!
