The New X-Wing for 'Star Wars: Episode VII' is Revealed by J.J. Abrams

— July 22, 2014 — Social Good
In a video update from 'Star Wars: Episode VII' director J.J. Abrams, the new X-Wing makes an impressive appearance. Speaking directly in front of it, which is only natural since he is on the set of the highly anticipated movie, Abrams talks about something a lot more important than the new X-Wing, although some of his words might simply go in one ear and out the next.

With the new X-Wing as a great reason to play the video, Abrams hopes to end his Force for Change charity campaign with a bang. By donating, he is giving people a chance to not only be apart of the movie itself, but to also enjoy an advanced screening in their hometown with 20 friends a week before the movie hits theaters in December 2015.
