Good news, everyone! JJ Abrams killed Jar Jar Binks (probably). Also, Vanity Fair has Star Wars: The Force Awakens set pics with lots of new information, including what’s behind the main villain’s mask, a brand new space pirate, and much, much more.
ANH: Y-Wing Fighters are being unplugged from their ground system in the Rebel hangar at Massassi. For the figure at the left, McQuarrie used a World War II photo of a Navy pilot running across the flight deck with clipboard in hand, changing the uniform but capturing the gesture. The pilots have helmets which are capable of life-support, working automatically whenever a malfunction in their aircraft occurred. Fighters are designs by Colin Cantwell, revised by Joe Johnston.
