'The Star Wars Show' Unveils Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter In 'The Last Jedi'

By: Benjamin Hart

As we've seen in the teaser trailer and the newly released behind the scenes reel, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is going to introduce an assortment of new characters, vehicles, and creatures. One particular ship we've been hearing(and sometimes seeing) a lot about in recent leaks and rumors has finally been officially revealed.

Today, the newest episode of The Star Wars Show opened with some big news from The Last Jedi. Host Andi Gutierrez revealed details and images of the new personal starfighter of Kylo Ren in the film. While Ren used a shuttle to travel about the Galaxy in The Force Awakens, it appears he will be taking after his Grandfather by piloting a TIE Fighter of his very own.

The full technical name for the fighter is the Seinar Jaemus TIE/VN Space Superiority Fighter, or you can refer to it by an even cooler title, the "TIE Silencer". The ship includes laser cannons, a missile launcher, and some heavy design influence from the Empire's TIE Interceptor.

You can can watch the full episode of The Star Wars Show below, which includes a full 360-turnaround of the fighter, along with with interviews with the cast of The Last Jedi:

See the TIE Silencer in action when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th!
