I don't know... it looks plenty different to me. It keeps the overall elements that make it a space superiority fighter and escort, but there are clearly A LOT of design changes that tell me this is a more evolved version of the most famous starfighter that helped bring freedom to the galaxy.

I think the fact that we're seeing the X-Wing return in an evolved form rather than a completely new starfighter variant is an acknowledgement of its role in shaping the galaxy during the days of the rebellion.


EDIT: Also, is it me or does it look like the new X-Wing has a single layer s-foil instead of a double layer of the original? Looking at the laser mounts at the ends of the s-foils, it looks like it's actually split down the middle, meaning when the s-foil move into attack position, it'll look like the front s-foil section will move down while the back will move up.
