Be a Star Wars Star!   Leave a comment

Hey, folks!  Just keeping you updated on the latest Star Wars controversy as we wait impatiently for the latest, newest incarnation!

J. J. Abrams, the director of Episode 7, makes an appeal to directly to you, the nerds and the geeks (that includes me, my husband and just about our entire social circle) to donate to UNICEF and if you do, you, yes, YOU might get a chance to win a part in “SW7”!

See here for yourself:

From a press release that accompanied the video:

All Wings Report In! On the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, Director J.J. Abrams was interrupted by an X-Wing pilot and rogue robot as he announced the chance for fans to win an advance private screening of Star Wars: Episode VII. “We are so grateful for the support that the fans from over 119 countries have shown for Force for Change,” said Abrams. “As we close this final week, we’ve added an additional prize that allows the fans the opportunity to see the movie early as a thank you for supporting such a great cause as UNICEF’s innovative, lifesaving work for children.” By contributing at any level by July 25th, participants will be eligible for all prizes including a chance to be in the movie.

Now comes the controversy.  It appears that the vehicle that J. J. Abrams is standing in front of is not really an X-wing fighter.  Even my friend has told me so.  It appears to many to be a Z-95 Headhunter.  Apparently, this is IMPORTANT.

What do you think?  Does the viewing audience/people who claim to be Jedis know their stuff better than J.J?  Or is this a genuine case of mistaken identity?  Remember, we’re looking into the future here.  Could be a whole new class of fighter vehicles!

Watch the clip and decide.
