“Star Wars” fans got their first look at an Episode VII X-Wing Starfighter in a charity video starring J.J. Abrams.
In the video, which is an ad for a UNICEF charity drive, the “Star Wars” director and “Lost” co-creator is seen standing in front of the starfighter while he describes the fundraiser and some of the rewards fans could get. After slowly panning out to reveal the full size and scope of the spacecraft, Abrams is interrupted by a Rebel fighter heading to the cockpit.
Fans who donate to the Force for Change fundraiser have a chance to win a visit to the “Star Wars VII” set, appear in the film and attend a sneak-peek screening.
But we all get to see the X-Wing. Thus, we all win.
