It’s August, and we have approximately 113 days until we have Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the eighth saga installment of the franchise, graces our eyes. Slowly but surely, a lot of the pieces are falling into place for the film. We have an idea of the stakes, the subplots, the tone of the film, as well as some of the character developments. However, we are severely lacking in some vehicular details here.

That ends today. The folks over at The Star Wars Show shared with us some details regarding two vehicles. The first one is something that will look very familiar to longtime fans of the franchise, and it comes in the form of the AT-M6. This bad boy’s initialism stands for All-Terrain MegaCaliber Six. Of course, the AT refers to the fact that it can walk over stuff, and the MegaCaliber Six refers to the laser cannon on its back.

Have a look.

Obviously, this thing looks very similar to the famous AT-AT walker that invaded the Rebel base on Hot in The Empire Strikes Back, so this design won’t do much to quash the rumors that this film will only be another retread of what’s come before. One key difference here, however, is that the AT-AT walks more like an elephant, whereas these guys move more like gorrillas. It supposedly helps to stabilize the cannon, but we’re also hoping that it helps to make it move faster, so that it’s a bigger threat to our heroes.

The other vehicle they shared is the First Order Dreadnought. This guy looks like a beefed version of a Star Destroyer, but it looks like it can still pack a punch with its orbital auto cannons and a series of anti-aircraft cannons as well.

Admittedly, the photo here is deceiving, and out of context, it looks to be a smooshed down version of the Star Destroyer, but it’s anything but. If you’re curious how this compares to the Star Destroyer, it’s roughly five times in length. Damn.

What do you think of these vehicles? Are you excited to see them in action? Let us know down below!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15, 2017.
