A First Look at the X-Wing Starfighter From Star Wars

Jul 21 2014 - 10:42am

The filming of Star Wars: Episode VII [1] is under way, and director J.J. Abrams is as notoriously secretive as ever about plot details. Thankfully, we have received some casting news (the return of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher! [2]), and today we got the biggest reveal yet from the set — a look at the new Rebel Alliance X-Wing fighter plane.

In support of the Force for Change UNICEF campaign [3], which has already seen help from the likes of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert battling with light sabers [4], the film released a video with Abrams offering the chance to not only win a visit to the set in London but also a screening of the film in one lucky winner's hometown to contestants who donate to the UNICEF campaign. Perhaps even bigger than the cool prize announcements is the look at the X-Wing fighter plane, complete with a Rebel Alliance pilot entering the cockpit.

There are four days left to enter the Force for Change contest, so hurry and enter [5] for a chance to go where no Star Wars fan has gone before.
