    Great photo! The presence of those A-wings makes you wonder what role they might play in the film. The colors of the new A-wing look like they match up with the ROTJ version, but in this case the paint apps got inverted:

    Looks like a cross between an AOTC Jedi Starfighter and an A-Wing.

    It has some serious McQuarrie inspiration, right down to the little details:
    See you around, kid.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I was at the Celebration event when Rian was talking about filming VIII and he was talking about how they watched a number of old films to get a feel for how he wanted the tone of the film to be, one of those films was '12 'O Clock High', which after completing filming he noted a lot of that movie translated through, here is a brief synopsis:


    • In this story of the early days of daylight bombing raids over Nazi Germany, General Frank Savage must take command of a "hard luck" bomber group. Much of the story deals with his struggle to whip his group into a disciplined fighting unit in spite of heavy losses, and withering attacks by German fighters over their targets. Actual combat footage is used in this tense war drama.

    Putting A-Wings in Rogue One and Rebels is a shame. They were always meant to be new, fast technology when ROTJ originally came out as I distinctly recall reading at the time.
    May you live in interesting times.

    Pretty sure these A-Wings are for Ep8, not Rogue One. Either way, the idea that the A-Wings were new technology in ROTJ seemed to be thrown out the window when they appeared in the Droids cartoon (for no other reason than Kenner needed an excuse to release the toy in Droids packaging), which took place before ANH. Besides, it was never actually mentioned in ROTJ that the A-Wings (or B-Wings) were new, more advanced fighters. That was all part of the EU that was thrown out when Disney took over.

    However, even if the A-Wings were the latest technology for ROTJ, that doesn't negate their appearances in previous eras. It can take decades for a new aircraft to be developed, tested and put into service in our world, so it doesn't seem far fetched that the same could be true of the Star Wars universe.

    Im pretty sure I heard at one point that Disney broke it down saying they see it as there were several factions of the Rebellion working across the galaxy, some had more X-wings, others B-wings and A-wings. Then when it came to the big fight in ROTJ, they called them all in. So there was clearly more out there than we previously saw. (Including possible Jedi?)
