J.J. Abrams unveils the Star Wars: Episode VII X-Wing!

07.21.2014

Disney and Lucasfilm have been taking advantage of all the publicity surrounding STAR WARS: EPISODE VII and utilizing it for a good cause; to support United Nations Children’s Fund’s (UNICEF) Innovation Labs and programs. Contributors are eligible to win a chance to visit the set of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, be an extra in the film and even see the movie before anyone else does! The contest will end on the 25th, but J.J. Abrams has decided to release another video in promotion of it. If you dug the video where we got to see the Tatooine merchant, I think you're really going to dig this.

Take a look:

Star Wars: Force for Change has impressively raised over one million dollars within the first 24 hours of its launch—a record for Omaze, the fundraising platform. UNICEF’s network of 14 Innovation Labs help create sustainable solutions to critical issues facing children around the world in the areas of nutrition, water, health, and education. Star Wars fans can continue to pledge support here for a chance to win until 11:59pm on July 25.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will show off it's new X-Wings in action on December 18, 2015.

Thank you JJ

All things indicate more use of practical effects, which is awesome. I know CGI is needed in this type of movie, but it doesn't look as if JJ is going all crazy a la George Lucas. So far, it looks and feels like the old trilogy. Keep it up Mr. Abrams.

I guess the bad guy is going to look like McQarrie's early Vader art?

Looks almost exactly like McQuarrie's X-Wing concept art!

don't be an asshole, the money he's raising is for charity. and maybe he does give part of his paycheck to this cause, who knows?

We all have a personal responsibility to help those in need. It comes along with being a part of a civilized society. We may not be able to give as much as JJ, but we can give what we are able to help out. The fact that you have access to internet then you definitely have the means to give a few dollars to help out. Who knows, maybe you'll win.

@ Mr Majestyk

Who's being an asshole here? The guy asking about rebel ships or the guy calling him an asshole? Think about it, he's made no negative comments towards the UNICEF fund raising. Here sir you are the asshole.

Wear it with pride!

It's based on the early Ralph McQuarrie X-Wing concepts. Biggest difference being the two engines that split in two, instead of the classic four engines (one for each wing). This one seems like it might only have 2 solid wings though, I'm not sure if they'll split to form the X shape. Also, it's got a much shorter nose.

Looks like a Z-95 Headhunter, they're like X-Wings without the S foils.
