Star Wars: The Last Jedi is bringing on two major frigates to the mix – one serving as the base of operations where Supreme Leader Snoke commands the First Order, and one themed after the Resistance which is named after a certain famous Mon Calamari…
If you were a bit underwhelmed by the recent reveal of the “Pizza Crust” Star Destroyer, then don’t worry – there’s an all-new one that’s bigger, badder, and one tailor-made to fit the needs of the First Order’s Supreme Leader.
And here’s a look at the ship’s engines:
In addition, there’s also a Resistance ship that looks to be a hybrid of a GR-75 medium transport and a Mon Calamari cruiser, named Raddus.
So yeah – the heroic Mon Calamari that got iced by the Empire shortly after the events of Rogue One gets paid his dues for providing critical backup for the daring operation to steal the Death Star plans to succeed. I’m really glad that they’re up to using elements from the Anthology movies in the main films, as it really makes it feel as though there are more connections within this sprawling Galaxy Far, Far Away. But I’m more glad that they’re intent on giving us some new ship designs along with the repurposed ones in the movie. These ought to look awesome on the big screen!
