New ‘Rogue One’ Pics Show Classic X-Wing Plane

Rogue One

The pictures were taken at a studio where ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ was also filmed.

New pictures from upcoming “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” have made their way online. In some photos obtained by TMZ, a classic X-Wing plane can be seen at the Pinewood Studios where “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was also filmed.

The Rebel fighter plane was famously used by Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) to destroy the Death Star. The X-Wing seen in the pictures has four engines, just like the original planes. Meanwhile, the X-Wing featured in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is a newer plane with two engines.

“Rogue One” reportedly will follow a group of resistance fighters attempting to steal plans for the Death Star.

Previously, set photos of “Rogue One” gave a look at crash site of a downed starship in a beach area. There are also numerous Stormtroopers, which died presumably because of the crash, were floating on the seashore. According to sources, the sets have been recycled from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.

“Rogue One”, starring Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Sam Claflin, Riz MC, Diego Luna and Forest Whitaker, is set to be released in the U.S. on December 16, 2016.
