Exclusive First Look at new TIE Fighter from Galaxy’s Edge Revealed!
Starwarsnewsnet.com has reported today of an exclusive first look at a brand new First Order Tie Fighter from the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge themed park that will open in California’s Disneyland Resort in the summer of 2019, and in Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort in the fall of 2019!
The image that you will see of these cool new Tie Fighter will be a mix of Kylo Ren’s Shuttle, an Imperial Tie Fighter, and just a hint of Darth Vader’s Advanced Tie Fighter x1. The name of this new Tie is called the TIE Echelon.
For the next costume spotlight I’ve chosen everyone’s fan favorite furry teddy bear friend from Return of the Jedi, Wicket the Ewok!
If you remember, Wicket was the one who helped Princess Leia when she was about to be taken into custody by a couple of Imperial Bikerscouts. After he helped her out, Wicket then took Leia to his village so that his people could protect her.
When hearing C-3PO’s story about the Rebellion and Empire, Wicket and his tribe agreed to help the Rebellion locate the shield generator so they can destroy it. The tribe also helped defeat all of the Empire’s Imperial forces and then had a big celebration of victory.
Before we go onto the costume here’s a small model of the primitive hang glider the Ewoks created:
