J.J. Abrams Reveals New X-Wing for "Star Wars: Episode VII"



    How to Choose Your Organization for Giving Tuesday

    In an on-set video promoting Omaze's Star Wars: Force for Change campaign to raise money for UNICEF innovation labs and programs, "Star Wars: Episode VII" director J.J. Abrams reveals the brand new X-Wing starfighter ship that will appear in the upcoming film.

    In the clip, Abrams stands in front of the war-torn ship while talking about their fundraising efforts. "We cannot tell you how grateful we are for your support," he says. "People from over 119 countries have already participated and that's incredible and we're so grateful. But we're still going, we have one week left. So for this final week, we're offering you and a friend the chance to visit the set of 'Star Wars: Episode VII' and be in the movie."

    PICS: Movie remakes

    The X-Wing reveal comes amid an alleged plot leak that spoilers some story lines for the upcoming "Star Wars" flick (alleged spoilers ahead!).

    According to Badass Digest, the new movie will begin with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega's characters discovering Luke Skywalker's severed hand 30 years after "Return of the Jedi" ends. The duo then team up with Han Solo and Chewbacca to track down the vanquished Jedi master.

    Sound like a good storyline to you?
