A new set photo from the production of Star Wars: Episode IX reveals the first look at an orange X-Wing in the upcoming final installment of the sequel trilogy.
Details on the plot of the film are under wraps, however, Lucasfilm has confirmed Episode IX will serve as a conclusion to the Skywalker Saga. The latest set photo to come from MakingStarWars.net reveals an orange X-Wing outside of Pinewood Studios on the film’s set in Black Park. While it’s unclear as to which character the starfighter belongs to, the X-Wing seen in the photo is the same T-70 model utilized by the Resistance in both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Although the Resistance X-Wings have previously featured a blue paint job, a custom X-Wing has been seen in the past as Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) flew a black and orange T-70 dubbed “Black One” before it was destroyed early on by the First Order in Episode VIII.
