Following last week’s subscriber cover featuring Luke and Rey in a “passing the torch” moment with a lightsaber, Empire has now also revealed its regular cover featuring Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In addition, the magazine has also debuted an image of Poe Dameron’s new X-Wing, codenamed Black One. It’s described as follows:

“The X-Wing (an Incom-FreiTek T-70, to be precise) has, according to Rian Johnson, been specially modified by Resistance engineers, with a temporary accelerator pod affixed to the aft section. According to The Last Jedi director, the pod, when primed, increases Dameron’s speed, allowing him to outrun First Order cannon emplacements. It’s just a temporary boost and will burn out quickly but it’s enough to get beyond the barrage of turbo laser fire from First Order Star Destroyers such as the one depicted in the image.”

You can check out both the Luke and Rey cover and the X-Wing image in the gallery below!
