Report: New Look At The Resistance A-Wing From 'The Last Jedi'

By: Benjamin Hart

For a while now we've know A-Wings will be among the Starfighters that will be showing up in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The nimble fighters have a long history in the Star Wars saga, having been first introduced in Return Of The Jedi, and more recently have been heavily featured in Star Wars Rebels. Around this time last year some set photos confirmed the presence of A-Wings in Episode VIII, and you can catch some quick glimpses of a few of them in the recently revealed teaser trailer.


Now it looks like we have gotten our best look yet at the new Resistance A-Wing. Recently a listing for a new IncrediBuilds book surfaced on Amazon, which includes a buildable wooden model of the A-Wing. The cover of the book features an almost complete top view of the fighter showing off its similarities and differences from the original version. You can check out the cover below:



See A-Wings in action once again when Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters on December 15th!

  1. this is whats wrong with the star wars sequels, tie fighters, x-wings, and now the A-wing look almost identical to the ones from the original trilogy, and this is supposed to be 30 years later, cmon give us some new ships and designs!

    1. It's because the rebel alliance/resistance are under equipped. So they re use stuff. That combined with showing a natural evolution of design over time as with tie fighters, star destroyers etc it's not laziness it's deliberate dude

    2. Go look at the F-15 vs the F-22. 25 year gap. Design doesn't really change much in the military. Change is incremental.

    3. We're talking science fiction DUDE, not real life. In SCIENCE FICTION you can be creative and explore and innovate new ideas and concepts, but not with Episode 7, 8 and probably 9; no, we'll just recycle old ideas because Hollywood is lazy and they're GUARANTEED to make money off of blindly loyal SW fans like you guys...

  2. Um, when the F-15 was 30 years old its replacement (F-22) was barely in service (it entered service when the F-15 was 29 years old), and in tiny numbers. And that's with the U.S. Air Force, not a military lead by a bunch of ex-rebel hippie pacifists.

    Also, when something is iconic as the X-Wing you go out of your way to keep it in service. The newer variants feel very much like a newer model of a military aircraft. Different enough to be a different ship, but very similar to the original in looks. If we hadn't made the transition to jets right after WWII I bet we'd have had decades with new versions of the Spitfire or Mustang.

  3. mate, its supposed to be realistic. if you want a new ship, look at the massive resistance bombers that surround that lone a wing in the trailer. or those airspeeders on the white/red planet
