Poe's New X-Wing Revealed in New STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Photo
Empire Magazine has released a new cover for Star Wars: The Last Jedi featuring Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) wearing all black and Rey (Daisey Ridley) holding the iconic Lightsaber. They released a previous cover that showed Rey handing Luke the Light saber he was holding when his hand was sliced off.
The magazine also revealed a new photo showing off Poe Dameron's new X-Wing, which is codenamed "Black One". You can find a description of his new X-Wing Below the image:
“The X-Wing (an Incom-FreiTek T-70, to be precise) has, according to Rian Johnson, been specially modified by Resistance engineers, with a temporary accelerator pod affixed to the aft section. According to The Last Jedi director, the pod, when primed, increases Dameron’s speed, allowing him to outrun First Order cannon emplacements. It’s just a temporary boost and will burn out quickly but it’s enough to get beyond the barrage of turbo laser fire from First Order Star Destroyers such as the one depicted in the image.”
Sounds like a pretty badass little ship that Poe is going to be flying around in! I can't wait to see some footage of him flying around in it while battling the First Order!
Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in regular and IMAX theaters on December 15, 2017.
