The Last Jedi: New First Order walker, starship revealed

The Star Wars Show has revealed two new vehicles from The Last Jedi, both from the First Order. The AT-M6 (All Terrain Megacaliber Six) is a new walker with a “more simian-like gait,” and the First Order Dreadnought is a new gigantic spaceship that measures 7669.72 meters (or 25162.8 feet). Get all the details at StarWars.com.


Both vehicles were the subjects of rumors from the folks at Making Star Wars. There are still some unrevealed details, so tread lightly.

The Star Wars Show teases The Last Jedi at D23 Expo

The Star Wars Show is teasing all the stuff we’ll see (or hear about) at this weekend’s D23 Expo. The likeliness of behind-the-scenes content for The Last Jedi seems high. It seems very high.

Andi also mentions a livestream, and you can see the schedule here. It doesn’t seem to include any panels, but Andi will be talking to Ashley Eckstein Friday and Saturday at 1:30 p.m., and Jennifer Heddle on Sunday at noon.

Star Wars Celebration is skipping 2018

There will be no Celebration in 2018, Reed announced today. The next Celebration – after April’s Celebration Orlando – will be in 2019.

That’s the year Episode IX is due, and the Star Wars Lands are expected to open, and so far, U.S. Celebrations have been held in the years saga films are released. A return to Anaheim is probably the best bet – I doubt we’re ever going to see a domestic Celebration not held within a few miles of a Disney theme park ever again.

We don’t have a location yet, but these things have in the past few years been announced at the closing ceremonies of the preceding Celebration, so we may find out April 16. Skipping years in nothing new, either – Celebrations started at 3-year intervals with the prequels and swapped to every other year until Celebration Anaheim in 2015.

Meanwhile, we also got details on Rebels programming and new guests for Orlando.
