JJ Abrams Reveals Star Wars: Episode VII X-Wing As Possible Plot Spoilers Leak

Abrams_x_wing

JJ Abrams isn’t normally one to pull back the curtain early, but he’s just dropped another Star Wars: Episode VII teaser, and this time it’s a first glimpse at the X-Wing.

And yes, that is an X-Wing, despite the fact that many internet commentators were quick to point out that it looks like a Headhunter from the expanded universe. But according to a tweet from the official Star Wars Twitter account, it is in fact an “Episode VII X-Wing”. So there you go – Star Wars has spoken.

The reveal comes in the latest video for Abrams’ Force for Change campaign. It’s great to see Abrams using the film as a channel for supporting the UNICEF charity, and the latest prizes include a trip to the set, and the chance to see the film at a private screening before the rest of the world

The clip itself is short but brilliantly done. It features a walk-on part by another character, and a cameo from an old familiar face at the end. We won’t spoil it – hit the play button and see it for yourself.

Meanwhile some alleged plot details have been leaked online. *SPOILER ALERT: LOOK AWAY NOW IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW*

Badass Digest reckons it’s got the inside scoop on the new movie. Allegedly the film will open with Luke Skywalker’s severed hand from The Empire Strikes Back falling through space and landing on a desert planet, where it’s discovered by John Boyega and Daisy Ridley’s characters. The due then meet Han Solo and Chewbacca, who inform them that they haven’t seen Luke in thirty years. Thus begins the hunt for Luke.

There’s also (apparently) some sort of superweapon being built on an ice planet, capable of destroying entire solar systems. Oh, and Han and Chewie aren’t piloting the Millennium Falcon anymore…

Really, some of this sounds kind of odd. Wouldn’t Luke’s hand disintegrate in the planet’s atmosphere? And we already know the Millennium Falcon will feature, so why aren’t Han and Chewie flying it?

But who knows? Stay frosty. And if you want to avoid any more Star Wars spoilers, you should probably just disconnect the internet for the next year and five months.

    *** SPOILERS ***
    They can’t begin the new trilogy with a severed human hand floating through space. Can they? How are they going to keep it fresh when it lands in the desert? Will a dog run off with it at one point and they have to chase it through the market?
    *** END SPOILERS ***

    Considering in the Star Wars universe people can dodge laser blasts, you can hear explosions in space, and space ships can bank left and right as if there is an atmosphere … I think they can get away with a severed hand meteor.

    I am intrigued if this is an “ex-stormtrooper” story, as previously leaked on Badass as well … but taking it to Han and Chewie feels … hokey. I’d rather all new characters until the reveal of Luke halfway through the movie.

    Though, who gives a crap what I think? It’s gonna be what it’s gonna be and we’re all going to pay money to see it, even if it’s just so Rian Johnson’s movie will make sense to us three years from now.

      I think there might be a distinction there, because the ‘average’ person probably doesn’t know that you can’t hear explosions in space and that a ship doesn’t bank left and right, but they do know an object will burn up falling through the atmosphere. Nonetheless, I’m sure the screenwriters have some way of explaining it.

      The ex-stormtrooper idea is a really interesting one, good fresh territory, where much of the rest of this plot sounds like a Star Wars remake (feeling lost on a desert planet, finding a lightsaber, hitching a lift off Han Solo, while the villains build a superweapon).

        I’m more interested in how the hand left the atmosphere. Bespin had an atmosphere so how did the hand achieve enough velocity and go into space?

        Do you think if people keep pointing out the fallacy of the whole hand floating through space that they will leave it out?
        One can only hope. A new hope
