If you’re not watching The Star Wars Show, Disney’s official weekly Star Wars weberies, you should be. This week’s edition opens with a funny video from the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII featuring director Rian Johnson and Chewbacca. But not only that, the show has revealed the key art for Star Wars Celebration Europe, which features both the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens/Episode 8 and the new cast for Star Wars: Rogue One. Sure, this might have been more cool if that Rogue One art didn’t leak online last week, but its still cool seeing this cast in this layout including a full reveal of Ben Mendelsohn as Director Krennic. But the art (and show) gives us our first look at a new model of AT-At and a new rank of Stormtrooper. Find out the names and more, after the jump.

And also a first look at a new class of Stormtroopers named Shoretroopers:
And a clear look at the film’s new class of AT-AT’s called AT-ACT which stands for All Terrain Armored Cargo Transport:
