OK, Bullhead isn’t the actual name, that’s just what everyone seems to be calling him… or her until the official name becomes available. The image, which you can see after the jump, shows us that the newest alien species in J.J. Abrams Star Wars: The Force Awakens is part of the Rebel Alliance and flies an X-Wing.Here he is in all his glory:
There was some new concept art making the Internet rounds yesterday over at TheForce.net and MakingStarWars.net that had two looks at a new alien that people were calling Bullhead in an X-Wing.
What do you think? Pretty damn cool if you ask me. Not sure how much we’ll see of him in the movie, but then again Porkins only had one scene and is remembered fondly.
Never forget Jek Porkins’ sacrifice.
It looks like Abrams has captured the correct combination of practical and CGI effects for the movie that pays homage to the original trilogy. Perhaps the mistakes he made when rebooting the Star Trek franchise are now paying off with his work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
