The long-term contract I had to sign
Says I’ll be making these movies ’til the end of time

“Weird Al” Yankovic is not only a famous “Star Wars” fan, but he’s arguably helped make “Star Wars” more famous over the years, via his hit song parodies “Yoda” (a spoof of “Lola” by The Kinks) and “The Saga Begins” (sung to the melody of the Don MacLean classic “American Pie.”)

In the new episode of Lucasfilm’s official weekly Star Wars-themed news show, “The Star Wars Show,” the hosts welcome Weird Al to the company’s headquarters and grill him about his history with the space opera franchise. They also unveil a new space vehicle that will show up in this winter’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” namely the U-Wing Starfighter.

Slashfilm.com has some screen grabs featuring different angles of the new ship.
