Saturday, September 2, 2017 Databank Updated With "The Last Jedi" Info & Photos

By: Benjamin Hart

With Star Wars: The Last Jedi right around the corner, Lucasfilm has begun getting ready for the film's release in various ways. One of those ways is some noticeable additions to the official Star Wars Databank on, many of which piqued our interest.

The Databank has now grown slightly to accommodate new entries for a variety of characters, ships, and locations from The Last Jedi. These new entries feature brief blurbs, and sometimes new images, of various elements. We have added the most notable ones below, which includes new info and a new look at the planet Crait, further details on the Resistance Bomber, Ski-Speeder, Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer, and much more:

Small, flat-muzzled avians that flock about the rocks and roost in the cliffs of Luke Skywalker's secluded island, porgs are inquisitive creatures.

Part of the support crew that keeps the Resistance starfighters flying, Rose has hated the First Order since she was a child. Now able to fight back against the enemy, Rose keeps her focus on her mission.

Resistance Bomber
Now reinforced with new combat craft, the Resistance fleet dispatches hardy bombers into battle with the First Order fleet. Escorted by swift starfighters, these munitions-laden carrier ships drop powerful proton bombs onto their Star Destroyer targets.

Now uninhabited, Crait is a mineral world dusted by a layer of white salt, reflecting the planet's sunlight. It was once the site of a Rebel Alliance outpost, and has become a haven for the fleeing Resistance forces.

Resistance Ski-Speeder
An older design pre-dating the Rebel Alliance, these low-altitude, high power ski speeders use a stabilizer strut to keep balance when zipping across alien terrain.

Rolling about the hangar bays of outposts and capital ships, or snug in the astromech sockets of X-wing fighters, BB units work tirelessly to keep the weapons and vessels of the Resistance in top combat condition.

The First Order benefits from the latest technology across all its activities. This includes having dark, gleaming BB astromech units of their own that keep their starships and machinery operational.

AT-M6 Walker
Lumbering armored beasts that are the latest generation in walkers, these enormous transports help the First Order secure the worlds of their expanding territories.

First Order Dreadnought
The First Order Dreadnought looms over its doomed targets like an impossible iron thundercloud. Its massive ventral auto-cannons rain down fiery destruction.

TIE Silencer
Reminiscent in design of the Empire's TIE interceptor and Darth Vader's TIE advanced, Kylo Ren's TIE silencer is an angular fighter equipped with laser cannons and missile launchers. Ren is an expert pilot -- thanks to skills passed down from his father -- which he puts to use in exploiting his ship's speed and ferocity. There is no other First Order craft like the TIE silencer, and it is an effective tool in Ren's mission to destroy the Resistance.

First Order Stormtrooper Executioner
The First Order can only operate effectively with the absolute loyalty of its followers. Should any soldier be found guilty of treason, it is up to this special branch of Stormtrooper to dispense final justice.

Elite Praetorian Guard
As the Supreme Leader of the First Order, Snoke stood atop an evil regime that mirrored many of the dark traditions of the Galactic Empire. As a striking example, Snoke was flanked by crimson-clad guardians, loyal protectors encased in the ornate armor ready to defend the Supreme Leader from any threat.

Which of these do you find the most interesting or revealing? Let us know in the comments down below!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters on December 16th.
