These classic Star Wars spaceships may be returning in Episode VIII

Luke and friends are calling in the A-Team

If you love letter-themed Star Wars spaceships but find the X-Wings just too low down in the intergalactic alphabet, then you’re in luck – because another iconic interstellar transport is returning for Episode VIII, and it’s A-okay.


Called A-Wings, these extremely fast ships first appeared in 1983’s Return of the Jedi, and were spotted by eagle-eyed fans in the background of several photos taken during the visit of royals Prince William and Prince Harry.

Sure, it’s probably just a merchandising opportunity but we can’t help but be excited to see the ships return to our screens – especially if it’s what flies Luke back into the thick of the action.


Star Wars Episode VIII will be released in December 2017
