Star Wars: The Force Awakens First Look at New X-Wing Pilot
Earlier today, we showed you the triumphant return of two Return of the Jedi favorites in a set of leaked photos. We also get our first look at a brand new character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, played by director J.J. Abrams's friend and frequent collaborator Greg Grunberg. Suffiecet it to say, there will be plenty of SPOILERS from this point forward.
Though the authenticity of this photo has not been confirmed, it's hard to deny that this is the real thing. Greg Grunberg, best known for his role on the hit TV series Heroes, is definitely playing an X-Wing pilot. Star Wars 7 News has more information about the character, the biggest fact being that he will appear in 3 movies, most likely those held within the new trilogy that kicks off with Star War 7. He was on the Pinewood London set for a total of 7 weeks, and earlier reports stated that he is not playing a CGI character. That appears to be true, according to this leaked photo. Also true, the character seen here has facial hair as rumored.
There are no substantial story details in regards to Greg Grunberg's X-Wing pilot. Though, some are calling his character the 'Wedge Antilles' of this new Star Wars trilogy. There has been a rumor that the movie features an X-Wing Pilot named Gorwyn, but it isn't known if this is the name of Greg Grunberg's character. Take a look. What do you guys think? If you missed it from before, we also have your first look at Admiral Ackbar and Nien Nunb.
