Following the aerial set photos revealed on /star-wars-7-millennium-falcon-x-wing/Tuesday, Latino Review has gotten their hands on some more behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII featuring another look at the Millennium Falcon and a group of re-designed X-Wings in a variety of colors. These spy photos were taken on the Greenham Common set in the U.K. Take a look, and then read on for how these different X-wings will play a crucial role in Star Wars: Episode VII...
Latino Review kick off their latest rumored scoop story with a dig at director J.J. Abrams' latest Tweet, which, if you remember, teases an Imperial presence on set. While the site calls the photo in question a shill for Apple, they also suggest that there might be a third Death Star in the works. Though it seems implausible, don't put it past J.J. Abrams, who is working hard to recall the first three films.
And one sure way he will be doing that is with an epic X-Wing fight that will utilize the different colored X-Wings you see in the above picture. While it is neat to see a blue, chrome and even Imperial black X-Wing, it's speculated that this color coding is more about selling toys that it is about the actual storyline. Though each new individual X-Wing will belong to a different Rogue Squadron member.
The Greenham Common set where the X-Wings and Millennium Falcon are parked used to house nukes in the 1990s. Its a unique looking place, as you can see in the above photos, and it will be seen in the movie as the docking bay. It is said to be reminiscent of Yavin IV with a touch of Echo Base.
If you look closely at the photos, you will see 2D standees of X-Wings, which will later be digitally added to the film, along with the practical vehicles.
Latino Review goes onto explain that there are a lot of X-Wing pilots in the movie, but specifically four pilots who will play supporting roles. Though they note, these might also be four supporting characters who 'pilot' an X-Wing without belonging to a specific squad.
The Black X-Wing belongs to one of the lead characters. It is not known which actor will be seen flying the black X-Wing through this galaxy far, far away, but it won't be Oscar Isaac, who is previously rumored to be the new owner of the Millennium Falcon, which is parked here alongside the X-Wings. It is suggested that John Boyega, who is rumored to be an AWOL and disgruntled Stormtrooper, will be flying the black and chrome X-Wing, which matches his black and chrome Stormtrooper armor.
