The video gives the first official look at the vehicle first glimpsed in the leaked set photos: a redesigned X-wing Starfighter based on Ralph McQuarrie’s artwork.  Note that it features blue coloring, which was planned for the starfighters in the original film until bluescreen technology forced a change to red.  The video also includes a pilot in orange flight gear with a new helmet as well as a classic Mouse Droid.
