New 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Photos Feature Poe's X-Wing, Plus Rey & Luke


It's been a quiet Labor Day, as expected, but things always seem to pick up any time there's new Star Wars info out there. And today Empire brings a new look at The Last Jedi's Rey and Luke on the cover of their latest issue. On the inside they also bring us a glimpse at the X-Wing fighter used by Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron.

Here's how they describe his new X-Wing: “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.”

Something tells me he's going to need that special accelerator.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens December 15th.
