It’s not uncommon that The Empire’s vehicle of choice, the Tie Fighter, gets an updated look from Star Wars movie to movie. Not really getting rid of the previous style seen in the previous movie but adding a ‘new’ Tie Fighter to the already massive Imperial armies. Plus it sells toys and merchandise is a big part of Star Wars. From the looks of this Concept Art from J.J. Abram’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens the tradition will continue.
Starring original cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and franchise newcomers, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von Sydow, Star Wars Episode VII is set to be released on December 18th, 2015.
